Sounds like a buncha 0bamatards running around.
I remember a recent case in Florida where a deputy was shot. The police tracked the “suspect” down and a firefight ensued. The “suspect” was shot 63 times. A reporter asked the sheriff why he was shot 63 times and the sheriff replied “Cause that was all the bullets we had”.
” .......the suspect was located a short time later and was shot and killed.”
Exactly. Excellent answer. “Because we ran out of ammo...”
But, but, but,.......people never just begin shooting at cops for no reason.
The Dorner supporters and criminal apologists must be sleeping.
I think the gang unit of the Sheriff’s Department took him out. Good on them.
When Sheriff Parmelieu and Chief McManus were being interviewed, some jerkwad reporter (not sure which station as you could only hear his voice) questioned why all this happened over a stolen car.
I thought he was inferring that Law Enforcement over reacted..Guess he missed the part about the suspect shooting a sheriff’s deputy, then drawing a gun on the two members of the gang unit.
I never could figure out which station the reporter was from as he wasn’t shown on any of the channels I watched.
