    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/boston-police-officer-in-coma-after-being-shot-without-provocation/

    The same police officer that was hailed as a hero during the Boston Marathon bombing, was seriously wounded by an armed black man, who shot the officer in the face when he approached the victims' car.

    This was clearly an unprovoked shooting per witnesses and video cameras.

    So, is this one more attempt to shoot white cops? You tell me. However, the truth of matter is, it has to stop. If it continues to escalate, there will be more shooting of white cops by blacks and blacks by nervous or overly concerned white cops fearing for his or her life in every situation they encounter.

    This is not America, or least the America I know and love. It seems that there are more people out to cause harm to cops than at any time in my memory, and it seems to be escalating.

    How do we stop this senseless killing? What needs to take place, so we can bring peace back to our streets? I'd love to hear your views!

    As opposed to the one who was shot in Dorchester by the UNarmed black man.

    Right. Per witnesses and video cameras, Michael Brown was gunned down.


    The cop is white and I'm sure the person who shot him realized he was white when he shot him. So no, it wasn't an attempt to shoot a white cop. According to the story he SHOT a white cop.

    Yes it has to stop. Who is gonna stop first? And white cops aren't fearing for their lives in every situation they encounter to he point that they will shoot everyone first and ask questions later. That's just happening more often with the black suspects.

    It's still America. The country doesn't go away just because it's not what we want it to be. So stop admitting that you no longer love your country.

    And a certain demographic seems to feel that there are more cops out to kill them than any time in most folks memory. And it seems to be escalating.

    First according to your story, the cop isn't dead yet so why are you asking about senseless killings?

    Second, whose streets are you talking about?

    Third, we already know that the only views you want to hear are the ones that agree with you. :laugh:

    So what's the point of this thread?

    Me thinks that works both ways

    So, can you provide a youtube link showing that?

    I'm guessing the purpose of this thread is to show that if a black man wants to shoot a cop he first has to arm himself.

    Seems like a no-brainer.
