    Re: Shootout with Police in NH!

    Wow, Higgins, I'm so sorry to hear this, a tragedy and so close to home. There must be something in the air tonight. Not that far from where I live here in NoCal a sheriff deputy and civilian were killed while trying to serve an eviction notice, and as of now, some ten hours latter, the suspect is still barricaded in his apartment.

    I never take for granted the legitimate danger LEO face daily in the performance of their duties. I grieve for the loss these families are enduring tonight.

    We never expect it. That's why it's so damned tragic. I'm sorry your community is enduring this. My condolences.

    Last I heard, they didn't know if it's a hostage or a perp.

    Huh? So, what are we to do, legalize the use of Drugs?

    Shall we have everyone stoned out of their gills, while driving down the highway at 65+ mph? Shall we have that same stoned motorist, driving through the neighborhood where your son or daughter are just getting off from school in the late afternoon? Or, what about basic human decency - does that matter anymore in this country?

    Do you remember WHY prohibition was even attempted in the first place? It was because we were becoming a nation of Drunkards, that's why. A nation of ill-reputes, remember. We were literally drinking ourselves into an economic recession, recall? We lost control, for a period of time as Miller, Schlitz, Pabst, Anheuser, Busch and all the others began to set-up shop in our towns, communities and city centers.

    Remember, how America used to take breaks to drink Whiskey, in the middle of the day? Lifespans were shorter, work place injuries were higher in number, abusive home environments were at historic highs - even marital rape was at an all time high - all because people let their personal habits get way out of control. Of course, prohibition did not work and now look at us. We are the world's poster child for how to design 12-step programs. Yet, another American record that I bet we are very proud to have on our docket of achievements. How many more DUI cases do we need to clog up our criminal courts across the country?

    So, what's next. Something like legalizing the sale and use of Crack Cocaine? How about Meth Labs. Should just set-up a National Association for Meth Lab Protocol, so that the number of houses that get blown-up in rural America starts to come down - as yet another statistic that shows we Americans are on the right track?

    Am I being just a little sarcastic, here?

    Heck, I don't know - you decide.

    This time around, it was a police offers who ended up being the vic, not some poor black teenage kid from Florida. And, of course, race was certainly not an issue in this case, because both shooter and his vic were white males.

    I can't help but wonder, if this was just another example of random gun violence, the failure of law enforcement to better control the drug scene in New Hampshire, the failure of the shooters parents to property rear him as a young child, the failure of the American Gun Lobby, or the general failure of America to wake up to the fact that our gun laws are beyond out of control?

    In either case, you sure do hate to see something like this happen, no doubt.

    So, sad.

    I think it is a failure of intelligence and morality on the part of the shooter.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    If he killed the Chief and wounded some other officers, he ain't coming out alive. Prison is the least of his troubles.
