    Northern Illinois, another Officer wounded. Manhunt underway. Scanner traffic says 3 people and a cat. I'm thinking lots of people in the area wishing they had a gun to protect their house or business, car, or whatever. I'm not too close, but the door is locked and guns are near as always.
    My wife doesn't like guns, but I had to go to County Courthouse yesteday and left her in the car cause I couldn"t find long term parking. As always, a lot of sketchy characters are in that neighborhood. I wasn't worried, cause there are also a lot of Police. When I got back to the car, she asked if the gun I had put away was loaded. I told her they are always loaded. She said I needed to take her to the range to learn to shoot it. I think today would be just perfect.

    I was wondering why my scanner app alerted me to that channel. It's now up on cnn.com. Sounds like they are pretty well boxed in, at least I hope. Dead or alive, hopefully the former.

    I can see the day coming when cops won't be allowed to patrol alone. I don't know how that can work logistically/financially, but it may have to happen.

    I hate these stories... RIP
    from the preliminary sounds, it was during a chase - not a black panther walk up assassination.
    not that it matters.

    Tragic. Prayers for the officer's family.

    I am on patrol tomorrow night. This and other murders like it have elevated my pucker factor HIGH!

    It's just horrible with what has happened here and with the deputy in Texas. This **** has to stop.
    Prayers to the officer and his family.

    It may be a figment of my imagination, but I did feel safer 7 years ago than I am now.

    And I had lotsa money 7 yrs ago, than I have now.

    heart breaking.
    one of my best friends is a S.O. in NJ. they serve warrants, do traffic as well as court. this all has him on high alert.
    he said 8 officers/s.o. have been killed in August - have not checked that - but would not doubt it.
    prayers to the family

    R.I.P.

    I hope the killer(s) are dead before sunrise. And yes, I consider all 3 to be equally guilty.

    Let us prey for officers....I meant 'pray'...
    HEY, O'BUMMA, YOU AND YER CRONIES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CRAP.
    If I had a father, he would look like one of these officers, killed by YOUR son , IF you had one, like uh, Brown, or Martin...
    Oh, and let that POS Sharptone ( tax evader and White House visitor...) shout from the White House roof, " WUDDOOOWEWANT ? DEAD COPS...WHENDOOWE WANT IT ? NOW..."
    and paint targets on their chests while you are at it .
    I can't wait for this corrupt a-hole to leave....forever.
    :steamed: maybe I'm being too passionate about it, but, DANG !

    I found your posting to be very passionate and I like to keep track of certain things. I understand that you're a member of the white community. Can you tell me if you're a christian and a republican also?

    Unfortunately the hate is spreading- surprisingly today, I actually had 2 friends who arent very progun asking for info for concealed carry classes and carry options. I abliged and set them in the right direction for a local CCW instructor.
    Im heading to range this weekend with both of them to give some basics on firearms/safety with my G27 and Sig P938.
    Be aware out there my GT friends- and dont dare leave home without protection.
    RIP officer.
