    The first cops in more than 30 years were shot dead by to black thugs, who are currently in custody. A third is still being sought for questioning.

    Where is the RAGE and SOCIAL ANGER by the citizens of this community? After all one black officer and one white officer are now dead after more racially charged anger is dispensed on our cops.

    If this continues, I can almost guarantee that the cops will be shooting first and asking questions later out of fear of what they are walking into, and who can:'t blame them. The job of law enforcement officer is already dangerous, and most cops want to go home when their shift ends to be with their family.

    It needs to end but the truth is it will get worse before it gets better. We need to stop blaming cops for everything that goes bad in a felony or traffic stop. It is clear that most folks stop become belligerent, confrontation and provocative. And this behavior will get the suspect beaten, taken down hard or shot. And in such a case, a good portion of the blame goes to motive and rest on the suspects shoulders.

    So now, while the reasons for this shooting are yet to be known .... when the investigation if released it will show willful intent to commit murder. And that sure is a shame! :tear::tear::tear:

    There is no indication the shootings were racially motivated. Nor is there any evidence that the killers killed them just because they were cops.

    When there is, then might be the time for "social anger". Not before.

    All we know right now is the bad guys killed the good guys. We'll know more later.

    I disagree. Forming an opinion before all the evidence is in gives us all a better sense of reality.

    Right RD2?
