Praying for complete recovery for the wounded deputies - and that they will gain custody of the third perp, dead or alive, without any more harm to LEOs or innocents.

This 'Open Season' Mentality on Police Officers must be stopped. I vote for immediate Death Penalty for anyone who so much as points a gun at a Police Officer. Enough is Enough. You want to shoot a Police Officer, then be prepared to be shot and killed right then and there yourself. No Lawyer. No Trial. You are guilty. You shot a Police Officer and you will pay with your life. Maybe if we begin treating criminals like criminals they will stop this crap. If not, at least we will be taking them out. My thoughts and prayers to the families of the Officers who have been wounded. Prayers for full and speedy recoveries. God Bless all of you for what you do.

The Texas Rangers were there with the seven deputies, which means they knew, going in, it was a high-risk warrant situation. I'm guessing one of the gangs that's increased their presence in Odessa.

Did the residents know they were shooting at leo's or did they think they were shooting at robbers?

You can blame this mentality on the Obama justice department and Obama defending of minorities and refugees over law enforcement

I'm reading this from my patio in Brazil and when I came to this sentence..."One of the suspects was destroyed in the gunfight....." I immediately thought that I was reading a translated copy from Portuguese as we rarely (if ever) see a sentence like this. I guess they mean that one of the suspects died as the scene!

Stronger laws for shooting or killing first responders. Fry a few the rest will back away from the fire.

The suspect who lived has not been charged with any drug offenses, but rather "failure to identify."

Born and raised in Odessa. There were three OPD officers killed in the line of duty on the same call several years ago. I was a police officer in neighboring Midland for several years. These shootings I take personally. Prayers for these three deputies to recover as quickly as possible. Prayers for their families both blood and blue...🙏🏻
