    The score tonight so far is one Glendale, Arizona PD officer shot just minutes ago. Unknown as to condition. He was shot with his own sidearm - I am withholding the name.

    The east valley had this OIS, but the officers are safe.

    The west valley had this OIS. The suspect is dead, but the cops are uninjured.

    The Occupy Phoenix people claim it isn't them, but a flyer advocating the shooting of police officers is being spread around there.

    Phoenix is getting violent.

    According to witnesses, the suspect stole a patrol unit and fled one mile to the west when confronted by other officers.

    The officer was taken to a well known neurological hospital and is not doing well.

    Maybe it is time to take this to another level. Boots, and bats, and rubber bullets!:steamed:

    Prayers for the OIS, and injured officers.

    Then in the comments section of the article:

    Oh Peggy, Peggy, Peggy.

    Peggy is not denying she was handing them out at the Occupy Phoenix protest, or that others from her movement were handing them out.

    She's practicing misdirection by only discussing one flier found previously, at another protest. I'm sure she (and others like her) had also been handing them out in that past protest. And will continue to hand them out in future protests. When it comes to causing injuries and deaths to LEOs, there's no satisfying them.

    Just heard from a Glendale firefighter friend of mine. He said there is a press conference on right now. Officer Brad Jones died of his injuries.

    Still nothing on the websites of the AZ Republic, KTAR, KKNT, KFYL, KPHO, nothing on Google news alerts. Television has had nothing, as well.

    I found out about 0130 this morning, Brad died in surgery from multiple gunshot wounds.

    He did several ride alongs with me through his hiring/academy process. Through few years of his career has come to me for advice, info sharing and joking.

    Last night we finished our conversation with him joking about my squad being lazy and me telling him I would put 6 months of my stats against his whole career. He just smiled his mischevious smile. Told him be safe and he said the same.

    Another legally owned gun used to kill a LE officer.

    And I wonder what connection the shooter had with the Occupy Phoenix movement, and whether he had any of those "Kill LEO" fliers distributed by Peggy and her friends.
