According to Rosanne Hughes, spokeswoman of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, Pimentel pulled over a vehicle in a residential area. There was a struggle and Pimentel was shot, Hughes said. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office took 24-year-old Joshua Manuel Lopez into custody and he will face charges of capital murder of a police officer, said Hughes.

  • cops will die because of ferguson

    Cops will die because of Ferguson. That’s the increasing likelihood as politicians, activists and media advocates across the country vilify law enforcement and the men and women who work in it. Cops will die because of Ferguson. They will certainly face increased danger, and so will we. The convergence of two unavoidable consequences of the rhetorical attack on the police will make that inevitable. The first is the emboldening of those who would raise a fist or a gun against the police. When you have the president of the United States – twice – criticize law enforcement, implying racism, and...

    If you’ve been watching cable news, reading Hollywood celebrities’ tweets, and listening to race-hustling opportunists, you might think that every police officer in America has a finger on the trigger, hunting for any excuse to gun down defenseless youths. This hysterical nonsense must be stopped. The Cirque du Cop-Bashing, with Al Sharpton as ringmaster, is working overtime to exploit the deadly incident in Ferguson, Mo. That means stoking anti–law enforcement fires at all costs. Are there bad cops? Yes. Does the police state go overboard sometimes? Yes. Do the demagogues decrying systemic racism and braying about “assassinations” know what happened...

    There is some coverage of this number, which varies quite a bit from year to year.   The number being shown is 33, but that appears to include one accident.  The trend is down, though not as much as the homicide rate in general.   It is clear that the number of citizen owned guns is not linked to the number of police killed with guns.  While the number of guns in the hands of the public has soared, and the number of people legally carrying firearms has skyrocketed, crime is down, homicides are down, and then number of police murdered...
