Itโ€™s better to be thought of as a fool rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt! Some are too damn stupid that they donโ€™t know what to type... Obama nor Muslims have anything to do with THIS situation... a few individual opened fire on LE officers... he got shot ... and he may not make it... end of story...

"The suspect backed his car into the officers, pinning two officers between their car and the suspect's car, according to Chief James Craig." Roll tape. Definitely wonder about the possibility of friendly fire on this one.

"One officer shot, two more wounded." I'm going to go out on a limb and opine that the writer meant "injured" for the two officers pinned between the cars instead of "wounded". It goes without saying that the officer who was shot was "wounded".
