I am sorry to hear of any police officer, hurt,or shot.
But how did this happen?
I think it was an accident.
Being a new policeman, maybe just the stress alone made him make a mistake.
May he rest in peace, and I will have him & his family in my prayers.

This headline makes it look like he was a victim. Nothing could be further from the truth, but the Blues want everyone to think that police are the victim of gun violence.

@SeniorCitizen...please read and comprehend the articles before providing us with your ignorant comments. Better yet, go find the activity list for your assisted living center and sign up for a class. Maybe take basket weaving and state your biased, un-informed opinions to your classmates.

Do you know he wasn’t the victim? Because they arent sure what happened. And I come from a Blue family and no matter what happened it’s still a very sad situation!

The death of this officer is nonetheless a tragedy, no matter how the headline is worded. Headlines generally have to be brief and are meant to attract attention, and after that, one hopes the reader has enough comprehension skills to understand the story. This headline is factually correct, unlike the headlines from the mainstream media.
