    While friends were commenting on his last ever Facebook post Friday, Trepierre Hummons called 911 -- then waited with a gun for officers to arrive, Cincinnati police said. In his bid to commit suicide by cop, he fatally shot Officer Sonny Kim, 48, a husband and father of three, police said. Then he opened fire on two more officers, said Police Chief Jeffery Blackwell. When Hummons, 21, called the emergency operator, he didn't let on what he was planning.

    An NYPD cop was shot in the head and chest and critically wounded in Queens on Saturday. The anti-crime officer worked out of the 105th Precinct in Queens Village and was on duty when he was hit at around 6:15 p.m. It was not clear whether he was in uniform – anti-crime officers often do plainclothes patrols. A suspect was initially believed to be holed up in a nearby building at 212th Street and 104th Avenue. Police sent hostage negotiaters to try to talk him out – only to discover it was a false tip.

    For several years now the online chat world has been highly critical of the Cottonwood Police Department. These largely anonymous critics have targeted Cottonwood PD for being too heavily armed, too overly preoccupied with their militaristic arsenal of equipment and too eager to put their weaponry on public display. "Why can't they be more like small-town cops?" the critics ask. Saturday night, we learned why such equipment is needed and necessary, and why police need to always be prepared for the worst. The call of a female employee being roughed up hardly served up the warning for what took place...

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one officer was shot in the face, just below his right eye, with the bullet lodging behind his ear. The...

    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...
