How come there was little coverage about this on social media and on the news stories and the TV news shows than there was about the guys that got escorted out of Starbucks by the police for loitering?? This is a sad tragedy with lives lost, but, the other got so much more coverage and air time, WHY?

If you call for a death sentence for the murder of cops then there should be the same death penalty for the death of unarmed blacks for officers who murder then write the bullshit report and lie their way through it. Justice for all or stop bitching. Cowards need not wear a badge, its not for sweaty palms.
