    I just read about this. I agree with you that it seems like a professional hit.

    Well, if that's true, then Huckabee's presidential aspirations are done.

    Maybe he doesn't mind.


    Anyway, politics aside, the man sought is still a suspect. Innocent till proven guilty.

    Then would it be fair to say that "No one loves the Huckabees?" Harharhar

    I don't mean to belittle this tragic event in any way, although it's sad that police officers are treated above the normal US citizen. You wouldn't have this many cops and investigators if there were four average citizens shot and killed in the same way. Although I do hope that the murderer is caught and prosecuted, killing is unforgivable.

    Well, if you haven't worked in the law enforcement community it is tuff to describe or explain this. It is not that officers are treated above the normal US citizen. Thnk of it as family, when one goes down everyone shows up, let alone four. I will leave it at that.

    It is going to be interesting what Mr. Clemmons has done or why they are looking for him. Last I heard he was a person of interest.

    Yikes. I was just there yesterday...:eek:

    Also, there's no excuse for the suspect not already being in custody for previous offenses.

    I read it in the news paper i think it looks like a planned one. i really feel very sorry for them.
    proper action should be taken for whoever did this and the people behind it.

    Only they're not like you and me. They can beat people, shoot people, and taze people at will. They are the only ones in the criminal justice system that have the power to take your life without a jury trial. It's to easy to be a cop. No degree required. Last time I checked, power/guns/and authority do not mix well with lack of education.

    Anyone else playing the numbers 4-37-39-40-42 - 29 in the mega millions or powerball?

    4 police, aged 37, 39, 40 and 42, shot on the 29th of the month.

    I just thought it would be interesting if someone won with that set of numbers.

    I've seen police prosecuted just like i've seen criminals slip through the cracks as well. What's your point? The judicial system has flaws,so you're going to hate every cop because of what only a few of them do? All cops are not bad cops.

    Come on. They were innocently having a break. They got shot dead without warning by a felon. They help protect us from danger and they were innocently killed and you don't feel sorry? :rolleyes:

    Do you paint everyone with such a broad brush? I don't have a lot of love lost for cops or the justice system as a whole but I try to keep perspective. :confused:
    I myself have experienced plenty of bad things without tarring entire groups with the same brush as those who wronged me. That sort of crap wears a person down. A grudge is a heavy load to carry.

    I hope you never need the help of the police. You don't deserve it.

    Maybe they wouldn't give you expensive tickets if you followed the law. Did you ever think about that? :rolleyes:

    Waiting for details...
    I hope the officer acted in self-defense, or to protect others. If not, the suspect should have been taken into custody. I'm sure the incident will be investigated.
