W. T. F. Every freaken day this happens. How in God's name do we STOP this? There should be a mandatory death penalty nation wide for the killing of cops. No appeals 30 days get your affairs in order. Bye. Bye.

ENOUGH!! ENOUGH! This has to end now!! Start an ENOUGH campaign to make it an automatic death sentence for the murder of any LEOs. My deepest sympathies to the officers and their families. Thank you officers for your service. Rest in Peace

Why 30 days? What cop killer has enough of a real life to need a month to get things in order. Give them 72 hours for their goodbyes, take them out front and HANG them. How to stop it? Citizens who are armed and trained to use their weapons. a good guy can trump a dirt bag any day.

Everyone says death penalty for people like this, I say strip them of US citizenship (if they are one) so we don't break any laws, then drop them off in a nice ISIS infested country and wait till you see a video of them getting beheaded.
