My thoughts and prayers for these officer's family. When will this insanity stop? Horrible thing to say but police need more range time to hone their shooting skills. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.....

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. This i the town I live in and I was right there in the area when this happened. this is too close to home especially since my grandson is currently testing of Sac Co Sheriff's and wants to work in Rancho Cordova. I agree with Just-My-Thoughts this insanity HAS to stop.

There was a time in recent history where "the suspect" would have never had his chance in court when a LEO gets murdered when its practically 100% certain who did it.
