Skip to comments.2 West Memphis Police Officers Shot to Death (suspects killed also)
Posted on 05/20/2010 12:33:09 PM PDT by Cedar
Just happened in the last hour or so. One of the killed police officers is the son of the Chief of Police.
Probably some middle aged white guy that doesn’t like the health care bill or something.
Not really...a few rough places along I-55, but it’s nothing compared to some of the notorious neighborhoods in SW Memphis, like Orange Mound. That area would be a fitting “sister city” for East Saint Louis.
In decades past, a lot of people moved to West Memphis (and further north in Crittenden County) to get away from Memphis. More recently, the suburbs in northern Mississippi are booming.
When I was a kid, I used to visit my aunt and uncle in Whitehaven, the portion of Memphis that lies along the Mississippi state line. Back in those days, it was a nice suburb. These days, Whitehaven is looking more and more like Orange Mound. Everyone who can afford to has moved into northern Mississippi, or the eastern suburbs of Memphis (Germantown, Collierville), or into Fayette County.
Damn illegal SOBs.
Was it a white van?
One of those officers killed was the son of the West Memphis Chief of Police. Another was a relative.
I got a little nervous watching all those officers surrounding the van with guns drawn. If they needed to fire their weapon and missed, they’d probably hit each other. Fortunately, the suspects were already deceased.
Yes, pictures show a white van.
How do you know he’s illegal? Just because he’s Hispanic?
Yep, I remember back in the 60s and early 70s it lived up to its name.
I don't know anything....just reporting what my police scanner and live radio are telling me.
Sitting in memphis right now and first I heard of this. Both Andrew Clark SR and Ben Ferguson will hopefully be talking about this at 4 pm.
If they are illegal, their deaths IMHO, are attributed the Federal Govt., illegal supporters, open borders crowd, Barry Obama, Calderon, etc. They have BLOOD on their hands.
No, not at all.
So, did the scanner or live radio say, "illegal immigrants involved"?
That’s Andrew Clarksenior not Sr. I just hope that Andrew is all right.
“...More recently, the suburbs in northern Mississippi are booming....”
They have the former Memphis mayor King Willie Herenton to thank for that.

Is he still on the force there? He works at 600 7 days a week it seems.
Actually we have FORCED BUSING to thank for white flight.
Homeschoolers, no doubt.
Prayers for the families of all our law enforcement heroes.
