Any chance the perpetrators were angry TEA Party members? Amish? NRA members? Militia? Heterosexuals? Christians? Catholics?

You answered my question - I am sure we will hear a full report on the State-run media regarding their “illegal status” on the evening news.

Other news source mentioned a high-powered rifle...probably a drug run.

I can’t really answer that, but it gets quite a bit of traffic from people traveling on I-40.

Once again, Mr. Wright was being a cynic. I realize how bad the State-run media reports. I have not watched any of them in the last 7 or more years - - I get my NEWS from FOX and RUSH. Screw the State-run media - unless or until they get objective, they too, may kiss my white ass!!

Remember this. Everything about Race is now OK? If the alleged CIC can make everything racial, then so can we as citizens of this GREAT country. I now make everything racial.

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.

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.

Yep, I remember back in the 60s and early 70s it lived up to its name.

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.

They have the former Memphis mayor King Willie Herenton to thank for that.

2 police fatally shot in West Memphis, Arkansas

By Tom Watkins, CNN

May 20, 2010 3:20 p.m. EDT

(CNN) — Two police officers were fatally shot and another two were wounded Thursday in two separate shootings allegedly by the same suspects in West Memphis, Arkansas, police said.

The suspects, who were using an assault weapon, were themselves fatally shot.

The incident began around 11:40 a.m. (12:40 p.m. ET), when police made a traffic stop on a white minivan traveling eastbound on I-40 at Airport Road, said Inspector Bert Shelton, who is assigned to city hall for the West Memphis Police Department.

The occupant or occupants of the van shot two police officers and sped off, he said. One of the victims died at the scene; the other was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died, Shelton said. One of the two fatalities was the son of the city’s chief of police, he added.

A short time later and about a mile away, in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart, two deputies searching for the suspects came across a white minivan and were shot and wounded as they approached the vehicle, Shelton said.

“The suspects were using an assault rifle,” he said.

The suspects themselves were then fatally shot by other responding officers, he said.
