    Ambush leaves 2 Vegas officers and Wal-Mart shopper dead; suspects also [W:74, 162]


    Five people were dead Sunday after a man and a woman ambushed two police officers at a Las Vegas pizzeria and then stormed a nearby Wal-Mart, where police said they killed themselves after a gun battle with officers.

    The unidentified man and woman walked into the pizzeria and fatally shot both officers; one officer was able to fire back before succumbing to his injuries, Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie told reporters.

    No motive for the tag-team attack is known, police said, although witnesses said at least one of the suspects shouted remarks about the arrival of a “revolution” and alluded to some kind of war.

    “He came in, shouting, ‘The revolution is about to start,’ something about a war, and that the cops were on their way,” Galindo told the Los Angeles Times, adding that the man then fired one shot in the air.

    My guess? "Spice" (supposedly synthetic weed, but actually whatever chems someone threw together in a garage) or "bath salts" (another garage drug available online). I've heard crazy things about both.

    I know have a rep for being soapboxy but those officers had families and those idiots just killed them without a thought. It's heartbreaking. Not to mention the innocent by-standers. My question is WTH do they mean by "the war"

    And one of the officers did one hell of a job.

    Not to mention the innocent by-standers. My question is WTH do they mean by "the war"
    I'm tellin' ya, this "spice" crap has got people wacky all over the place. I read a story about an NFL guy caught in a parking lot of Walmart with 2 open jars (why 2, both open??) of vasoline after complaints of someone masturbating in their vehicle. When the cops showed up, the guy said he was at Walmart because he had been looking for a Boston Market. That whole story is ****ed up sideways, but the 2 jars, both open, I just don't understand. There were empty packets of "funky monkey" (no BS, that was the label in the report) "spice" in the car.

    I am so sorry for these officers, their families, their fellow police officers and the community. I have said it once and I will say it again, I hate guns. I respect Americans for having their constitutional right to own guns and that is just the way it is in the US, but me personally, and again, me personally, I love living in an almost gun-free society.

    If someone in the restaurant had carried, maybe the scumbags wouldn't have made it to Walmart.

    Two can play that game, if the guy had not been allowed to own a gun he most likely would have never been able to go on a shooting spree.

    He would probably have poisoned the water, used a bomb, infected others or otherwise caused many more deaths. Him using a gun presumably saved lives.

    How ya like that?
