    16-year-old had finger on trigger, police chief says.
    A Former NAACP President who has been critical of police in the past, attended the chief's press conference and commended him and the mayor for their handling of the shootings. "If you have a gun illegally, expect to have serious problems," Smitherman said. "Then if you point it at a police officer, nobody will condone it. The outcome is most likely death."

    Lower taxes = cuts in law enforcement = fewer cops on the street = situations like this occurring more often.

    No.

    quite the opposite, actually.

    Lower taxes = increase in consumer spending = increase in government revenue = more cops on the street, more $$ for training & equipment, and more freedom for American society in general.

    A nation does not tax itself into prosperity.

    Color me shocked that someone from the NAACP would even say a kind thing about law enforcement or cops in general.

    Same here.....No blaming society or anyone else. Put the blame where it falls,right on the BG who chose to pull/point a firearm at a COP....It's rare, but refreshing to see...
