JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A day after a rookie police officer was gunned down in an ambush, mourners came to pay their respects at a makeshift memorial with candles, balloons, empty liquor bottles and messages of love from friends scrawled on T-shirts taped to a brick wall — to his killer.

"Rest easy," ''Thug in peace" and "See u on the other side" were among the things friends wrote to Lawrence Campbell, who police say ambushed Officer Melvin Santiago early Sunday as he responded to an armed robbery call at a 24/7 pharmacy. Other officers returned fire, killing Campbell.


Angelique Campbell, Campbell's widow, told News 12 New Jersey on Sunday that she was sorry for Santiago's family but that her husband should have killed more officers if they were planning to kill him. She later apologized for the comments.

Police said they are looking for clues to explain why the 27-year-old Campbell, who had previous drug arrests and was released from jail in January, would have committed such a violent act.

Campbell, who didn't try to rob the Walgreen's, assaulted the store's armed security guard and snatched his gun, Fulop said. Then, he told someone to watch the news later because he was "going to be famous."
a culture of thugs honoring one of their fallen, wow.

Not to make light of the horrific event but how did the bad guy without a gun stop the good guy with a gun?

Welcome to America.

This is what happens when you promote a culture of violence, guns, and ignorance.

Your all wrong! What happen was. The gun became alive. The gun then told the thug to kill an officer. So this article is wrong. It was the gun that killed the cop. Not the thug. We need to ban all guns in America because soon they will control us. All humans will be out numbered! The guns will march into our hands and force us to pull the trigger on one another! Aaahhhhhhhh!!!

Guns! Guns! Guns! Lets blame the Guns! Get over it. The 2A isn't going anywhere.

People are not criminals until they break the law.

That whole "criminals don't follow laws" meme has to be one of the worst ones out there.

Democracy does not work if you don't fight for what you believe is right. The 2A can be amended and hopefully will be one day.

Amended to what?
1.It's impossible for a criminal to shoot someone without a gun.

----------


2.No ****. Let's just repeal all laws since criminals obviously don't follow them. :rolleyes:
1. then disarm cops & security guards FIRST, this is how this criminal got the gun.
2 no one here suggested that.

My ideal amendment would be:

Ban all guns except for LEO, hunters, farmers, licensed security guards and military.

But at this point, anything would better than the current situation.

yes! Give all guns to the authorities.
Because if history has taught us one eternal truth: governments never missuse their power.
The people in charge always have only their underlings best interest at heart!

I wouldn't say ban all guns. I don't take huge amounts of issues with people having one in their house, or concealed carrying a handgun.

My ideal amendment would be:

No, you're not allowed to carry that armed and ready semi-automatic long range rifle you have slung across your back into a grocery store, because it's nigh useless as a weapon for self defense in peacetime, where most acts of violence take place in close quarters completely by surprise, and a handgun would be far preferable in that situation, so quit trying to overcompensate, you jackass.

Oh, and if you want to CCW, you have to take 30 hours of training. Cuz damn, we can't just let anyone have a gun without them knowing how to use the thing. Just letting anyone come off the street and pick one up goes against the idea of a well regulated militia, doesn't it?

The military has much, much, much better weapons already.

Are you implying there is power parity right now between the civilian population and the military? One that would somehow be upset if fewer civilians had guns?

This is exactly what I am implying.
In a tyranny-urban-warfare-like situation a heavily armed population like in the US makes a huge difference.

Yup. If we do have another revolution in the US in the next couple of decades, it'll have to be a peaceful, cultural one, where we all hold hands and look nice on TV.

The only hope we have for an armed revolution would be for the military to take up our cause in the matter, and step aside. If they don't, the major brunt of it will be over in about three days, then you'll have a couple of years of failing guerrilla warfare, and domestic terrorism that'll end up doing more damage to the American people than it does the government.

You can't possibly be serious.
Why?
In a democracy all power comes from the people, not the armed government forces.
I hope their will never be a armed confrontation like that, but its always good to have the right to be prepared.

That always works really well :D
Thugs are always very impressed by candle lighting, hippy chanting and hand holding action. :D

If there was a rebellion in the US, the small number of people with firearms (and yes, the number of households that have firearms has gone down while sheer gun numbers have gone up) would do nothing. I'm sure a lot of people can take on a tank, or a few planes, or maybe a drone or three. And I'm sure that a random citizen will be as well trained as somebody in the military.

I think you "slightly" overestimate the US military power.
they havent managed to win a single war since 1946, even against ridiculos, run-down, micro-nations like Iraq or Afghanistan.

In any case, just because you think the US populous would be helpless against their own government doesnt justify taking the individuals right away to excercise their freedom to at least be prepared.
