I worked in Pomona in 1975 and at night I could hear gunfire without fail. It is a war zone, no doubt about it, crawling with gangs and other criminals. Next time let the people where the trouble is police themselves and see how it goes down. I'm sure the upstanding citizen, a-la-Michael Brown, wouldn't harm anyone but an evil, racist police officer. Sadly, most people trapped by income in the countless war zones of this nation, want out, but can't get out. They are victimized by their own. Don't imagine this will go unchecked like this forever. When countries run low or out of money to coddle their violent criminals, they, and their citizens turn quickly to drastic measures. We are perhaps a generation form summary executions of convicted murderers, rapists, kidnappers, and a few other types of crimes that used to be dealt with swiftly and severely. Just look around the globe at how these people are dispensed with almost instantly. then think to yourself that it would never happen here. then think again.

A police officer is murdered and you idiots are talking about good vs bad cops. Seriously, this conversation has nothing to do with the article.

@LEO0301 nah, I'm high with my wife and we're watching the NCAA brackets. It's raining outside and we're eating pancakes. This is a great Sunday.
