    It just keeps getting crazier. What the hell is going on? Is this a conspiracy?

    Payers for the families.:sadangel:

    I know. I'm not a conspiracy guy, and I don't believe this has anything to do with a conspiracy.
    But this is just about the worst time for this to happen.

    It's a relatively upscale area outside of NYC that's 95% white. I take it you no longer support trapping everyone inside and killing them?

    I googled the city before posting. What I was saying is I would have expected it from an inner city area. Race doesn't factor in to my post. It's the attitudes of the vast majority of people living in those areas. My last post was a bit extreme.

  7. They are all volunteers, at least one of whom is a LEO. Volunteerism runs deep for those who want to serve and protect.

    RIP guys. Condolences to your families, who were expecting all of you to return home safely tonight.

  8. Yes... I'd say so. And kudos for recognizing that.

    Horrible situation. Hopefully the killer gets what he deserves in the afterlife.

    First, thoughts and prayers to the fallen. This is a tough time to lose a family member.

    Second, regarding the quote above.. that's what I was thinking. NY is *almost* the model of gun control for Bloomberg and his ilk, and it still didn't stop a single thing.

    Obviously, they will simply say NY doesn't go far enough. :upeyes:
  13. No worries. The law of karma dictates he will get exactly what he deserves in his subsequent incarnations.

    God bless the victims and the families and friends.

    My post was a bit inflammatory as well. I apologize.

    On the way to crazy
    Thanks to those who have simmered down on their own. Those who have not, this is neither the time or the place for it.
  16. I wish there was a way to stop these things. It is crazy. Banning guns or certain types of guns isn't the answer but I wish we could think outside of politics and come to some solutions.

    I bet that those that knew this mutt will say something like "I knew something like this was going to happen."

    If some one is mental around you turn them in. In my neck of the woods the police nor mental health will do nothing to get the people off the streets but at least there will be a record of trying.

    I think you had a right to be inflammatory. I apologize for what I said.

    We definitely need to reform our mental health system. That will do a lot more than any gun control law will.

  19. The idea of this ambush is terrifying. These guys volunteered for their community and died for doing nothing more than responding to help their fellow man. I have this image in my head of these guys rolling up, sizing up the fire and gearing up, preparing to stretch hoselines to fight this fire. They were shot without warning, without reason for doing their jobs.

    This is almost surreal to me. I don't know how to defend against this. These families of the fallen will be in my prayers from this day on.

    This is senseless and beyond reason murder.

    Shooter was convicted of killing his grandmother in 1981. Was out on parole. Two Firefighters killed, others injured. Seven homes destroyed. Absolutely horrific. What has this world come to?
