    my guess is the corrupt ones
    the ones who abuse their authority

    So, people who may be corrupt according to a vigilante, should be killed for what others may have done to some snotty kids at a protest?

    it is evident your math skills are weak
    before, you insisted that a 23% increase was not significant





    kinda skimmed this, but you seem to be infering OWS is killing cops.
    in fact, i asserted just the opposite
    better slow down. that lazy skimming is preventing you from understanding that which was written

    12. There were 12 more, and we don't have the whole story on these. statistically it's insignificant when there are over 800,000 law enforcement officers in the US.

    So criminals because of what they see done to snotty protestors, up the anti by committing murder of a police officer, because why again?

    Agreed. Way too much information left out for this article alone to be relied upon.

    - *Why* are ambush attacks up? Drug war? Chance? Reaping what they sew in bad neighborhoods? We're the ambushers people with previous encounters with over-zealous police? (Wouldn't justify it, but it might explain it.)

    - Are they "up" now because they were down before, and this is merely back to so-called "normal"? Not saying normal is acceptable, but am saying that normal would defeat the scare-tactics of this particular article.

    - They picked a nice anecdote to support their side, but a single anecdote does not make a case by itself.

    In this case I strongly suspect that percentages were used purposely to make the increase seem more alarming.

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Lies, damned lies, and statistics" is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments. It is also sometimes colloquially used to doubt statistics used to prove an opponent's point.

    The term was popularised in the United States by Mark Twain (among others), who attributed it to the 19th-century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881): "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." However, the phrase is not found in any of Disraeli's works and the earliest known appearances were years after his death. Other coiners have therefore been proposed.

    My guess is this is just a trolling style comment that you really didn't mean and just wanted some attention.

    However, even the most corrupt cops deserve a trial and not some vigilante style killing.
