May God Comfort and Bless them all.
No name on the perp.
I’ve seen nothing about that yet.
Yup. Place your bets.
This is an example of why LEOs might be just a bit twitchy when responding to calls
Society is becoming unhinged
Well, we don’t yet know the details.
joining in prayer....Amen So sad
But Law enforcement comes in lots of flavors. Most here are great people. Some few have personal issues.
Texas Rangers here have the best overall reputation. Quiet, effective.
Fed Agency police? not so much. Issue of detachment from the community.
Yes, there are a couple of probable assumptions.
Some guy on msnbc saying it looks like an ambush
Surprised in Douglas County.
Yes, I am too. Once worked with a guy who was a Deputy with Douglas County Sheriff Department mounted patrol (horseback).
Really good people.
Very nice on your association.
+1 Wait and see.
My friend was a Cowboy type, he was a salesman for a wholesale hardware company I worked for. He was a volunteer with the Sheriff department mounted patrol. He was a great guy. Have not heard from him since I left that company. Pretty sure he is retired now.
This is factually untrue. If the body is left there and rots, and the rot spreads to a water source, this gunman could still sicken or kill hundreds more.
No excuses to shoot unarmed noncombatants...
Professionalism is just that... if you cant do the job because youre too scared then quit, before another innocent is dead.
These excuses are just absurd. Incidents such as these used as justification for terrified cops shooting unarmed people is pathetic.
We are either a nation of laws where EVERYONE is held to the same legal standards or were Somalia.
Nice with the internet it makes it easier to find people if one desires.
