    Not a damn thing if they were smart.

    Those who carry concealed are not cops.

    Their only goal is to protect themselves, not everyone else.

    If someone is willing to be basically a suicide shooter there isn't much you can do to protect yourself. You have two trained LEO's who are armed and wearing bulletproof vests taken out because you can't eat your lunch with your handgun in your hand. The two officers didn't have a chance. It was reported somewhere that at least one of the officers did get a shot off.

    I can understand one crazy deciding to make a name for himself by shooting some people and then committing suicide. But finding two people to agree to this is unbelievable. You would almost think one of them might just prior to the episode might say, " You know, I been thinking about this plan a little .............".

    We have some screwed up people running around us.

    Wrong. If you have the capability of helping someone who is in imminent danger you have an obligation to help.

    And please tell us what these officers that were killed did to deserve being murdered.

    They didn't "deserve" to get murdered and nobody said they did. All that was offered was a possible motive.

    The quote which I replied to had the comment of "Sometimes you reap what you sow". That implied that these cops somehow did something to deserve it. Nothing I have read has shown these cops deserved it. Not sure why you are defending an undefendable statement such as that.
