Prayers for the brothers/sisters in blue.

As to the politicians who only ever have "prayers and condolences" out of one side of their mouth: It is your lack of integrity, pandering for votes and vilification of law enforcement out of the other side of your mouth that has as much responsibility for these injured Officers as the shooter. He may have pulled the trigger, but you put those Officers in his line of fire by coddling criminals, hamstringing the very Officers who went forward and turning the public against those who are charged with enforcing the rules that you promulgate. You have managed to build a "political control" problem. Shame on every one of you.

And for the local trolls and mental midgets who regularly make their inane comments: This is why Officers are so much different than you will ever be. While they went into the battle you would have been piddling like a puppy while hiding behind your keyboard or taking video so that you could find something wrong in your feeble mind. For you? You are not worth anything.

Gun control is not the answer, people with control is.
