Heartbreaking! Sick of losing so many heroes & really sick to death of too many politicians being soft on criminals who are let out of jail, given no bail, etc, just to re-offend, murder innocent citizens & our LEOs!

I bet I can give a description of the shooter. Right about 95% of the time.

Congress should immediately pass federal legislation that itโ€™s a federal crime to kill cops. Feds prosecute with the death penalty if guilty. Also give them their speedy trial so itโ€™s done quickly. First and foremost vote out the โ€œcriminal supporting Democratsโ€ in Congress so this legislation can pass.

Praying for the family and friends of this Officer. I hope the suspect develops a serious infection like MERSA that eats him from the inside out until he dies a long and painful death.

It used to be the worst crime ever to kill a cop. Ever since Odumbo it's a free for all. Maybe it's time to put some fear into these people. Death by hanging if you kill a cop
