We should be taking a stand against this as much as we do the killing of innocent people. Sounds like it was an attempted execution.
False equivalence. You will not see anyone defending the shooter. No professional org asking about the victims' possible past misdeeds. If he is caught, he will not be paid while the crime is investigated. Indeed, when LE catches up with him, he'll likely face summary execution. Let's just hope bystanders or misidentified persons don't get caught up in the response.We should be taking a stand against this as much as we do the killing of innocent people.

I believe that on page 27 section 6-9 that it only applies to black people. BUT on page 32 section 8-7 it clarifies that mostly republicans do that.The anti-mask protestors also blocked entry to hospitals.
If this were treated like other killings, the press would be investigating the two dead officers to find out about their past. Because one should always blame the victim, right?
We are living in an unhealthy world.
Agreed. Fairly and professionalism has gone out the window with police departments in major cities. I still have confidence in my local PD, although there's 1 cop I'm not a fan of. I can't say if it was a lack of judgement or he's a piece of shit. I hope its the former.People have lost faith in the police to do their job fairly and professionally.
The police believe they're being targeted and hunted, and feel they're fighting for their lives, always on the defensive.
Various 3rd parties are now joining in on the action, involving themselves on one side or the other for whatever various bullshit political reason.
Paranoia is rife, and everyone believes themselves to be right.
All I can say for a fact is that this is gonna get so, so much worse than what we're seeing now. It doesn't matter which side you're ultimately on, the objective fact is that our country is slowly eating away at itself away from the inside out.
Indeed they all will and rightly so. It’s a reminder not to stay stationary in a car any longer than necessary. Finish business and move to safer positions.If I was a cop and I hear of two cops being shot in the head while sitting in their cruiser, I would be uneasy.

As far as the 2nd line I bolded, that appears to be exactly what happened in Compton. If I was a cop and I hear of two cops being shot in the head while sitting in their cruiser, I would be uneasy. Like I said, my outrage is directed at cops that kneel on people until they lose control of their bowels and bladder and ultimately die.
My anger is directed at cops in NY that use a choke hold even after the suspect has been restrained and then kill the suspect.
My anger is at the cops that chuckle and ignore the words I CAN"T BREATH like it's a hoax.
My anger and disgust is directed at police departments that employ cops with numerous complaints against them (18+ complaints against Chauvin, but let's keep him on payroll)
My disgust is with the unions that stand behind thugs wearing a badge and justify their actions.
As I've said before, you can be the greatest cop, help out the homeless, save a suicidal person from jumping, etc, but if you stand behind a coworker and don't speak up when you see that coworker doing dirty work, you are complicit, and you are a piece of shit (maybe not the same level of scum, but backing scum makes you scum as well.
Days after Austreberto Gonzalez anonymously reported a fellow Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy to internal affairs for assaulting a colleague behind the parking lot of the Compton station, a text popped up on his phone.
It was a photo of graffiti scrawled on a dial pad at the station’s parking lot entrance: “ART IS A RAT,” it read.
It was one of the first instances of retaliation that continued for months, exacted by the Executioners, a band of deputies with matching tattoos that wields vast power at the Compton station, he alleged in a claim filed against Los Angeles County. The claim says the group — sporting tattoos of a skull with Nazi imagery and an AK-47 — celebrates deputy shootings and the induction of new members with “inking parties.”
In recent years, the claim says, its members were involved in setting illegal arrest quotas and threatening work slowdowns — which involve ignoring or responding slowly to calls — when they did not get preferred assignments.
The allegations have revived long-standing concerns that inked deputy groups — with monikers such as the Spartans, Regulators, Grim Reapers and Banditos — operate out of several Sheriff’s Department stations and represent what many in the community see as criminal gangs within law enforcement. The existence of such fraternities has sparked multiple internal investigations and recently a federal probe by the FBI, but the groups have remained entrenched, with many civil liberties advocates accusing the Sheriff’s Department of turning a blind eye.
“We have a gang here that has grown to the point where it dominates every aspect of life at the Compton station,” said Alan Romero, an attorney representing Gonzalez in the claim, which is a precursor to a lawsuit. “It essentially controls scheduling, the distribution of informant tips, and assignments to deputies in the station with preference shown to members of the gang as well as prospects.”
I repeat...The allegations have revived long-standing concerns that inked deputy groups — with monikers such as the Spartans, Regulators, Grim Reapers and Banditos — operate out of several Sheriff’s Department stations and represent what many in the community see as criminal gangs within law enforcement.
