    It's a tragic situation, while there may be issues with police interaction with the public in general, it's inexcusable to carry out such acts of brutal murder.

    Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.

    You can't prevent it but you don't have to be out there sponsoring the crap that leads up to it.

    Look at some of these comments:

    More awful news (8+ / 2-)

    One of the cops is being reported as being African-American! This story is becoming very, very bad.

    WTF does one of the cops being black have to do with it?

    This is the world (39+ / 0-)

    The NRA fought and worked so hard to bring into being, a world where everyone is afraid of everyone else and gun sales increase, and cops are ambushed, and women are shot by their abusers, and people of color are killed by police at rates approaching the era of lynchings.

    I am ashamed of my county, and of so many of my fellow citizens, for buying into this deliberate attempt to polarize the nation, and to make gun violence a daily news story in every media market. I am ashamed at everyone who has contributed to letting the NRA and its fellow travelers on the right get away with inciting death, murder, the militarization of the police and the continual sale of firearms to people who have no need for them, but buy them only out of fear.

    It's the NRA's fault?

    My point is that the "**** the police" movement (10+ / 0-)

    is extremely counterproductive and potentially dangerous. My solution is always one of engagement--not hate.

    Do you think MLK would have been carrying around signs saying "**** the police"? Or that Gandhi would have gone around throwing rocks and saying "**** the Brits"?

    by bevenro on Sat Dec 20, 2014 at 03:59:29 PM PST

    [ Parent ]

    * [new] How exactly have you engaged (3+ / 0-)

    and how has it helped at all? I think that's bull****.

    And why don't you go lecture the cops on nonviolence for once. When is the cop Gandhi? Why do people only lecture the oppressed on being nonviolent?

    The police are an illegitimate occupation force, period. They act like that on a regular basis and they enforce the racist, classist, and sexist system that exists in the US. That is their job. It's what they sign up to do. They don't deserved to be murdered in the streets like this, because no one deserves that, but I still say **** the Police. And you blaming those of us who are opposed to the police for this is ****ing disgusting.

    Yes, I hate those who oppress others. I will continue to hate them. I'm no MLK and I don't claim to be. If ending oppression requires we all be saints and martyrs then we're never going to end oppression.

    There are just no words to describe the level of crazy that some of the "social justice" crowd comes up with.

    It appears that the NYPD officers involved were pretending to do just that, on overtime no less. I heard on the news that they were part of some anti-terrorism task force and were on overtime providing an increased "police presence". Indeed, it is very, very hard to stop a moron that intends to do his thing and then commit suicide.

    I think one thing that could have been done was to not suggest that the police are murdering a segment of the population because they are racist.

    A very sad day for NYPD. I hope the families will be taken care of.

    While not much is know since the event just took placed and the investigation is just underway. The suspected shooter is dead from a self inflicted gunshot and a firearm was recovered.

    What stood out with the initial reports is no mention of the shooters or police officer's race. Maybe it will come out later. Just found it interesting after all the coverage of police officer shootings and choke hold.
    Tragic, just tragic. This is just going to increase the problems and it solves absolutely frigging nothing in the relations between police officers and people of color. In fact it makes it even worse. There is no place in a civilized society for vigilante justice or senseless killings.

    Sad stuff. And near Christmas too.

    DeBlasio, Obama and Sharpton on the other hand won't shed a tear for these dead cops.

    If the bastard who did it was in any way motivated by the Brown or Garner deaths, Al Sharpton should be held partly responsible because of his race-baiting & dust-kicking.

    Raced-baiting assholes like Sharpton make their money on that kind of rethoric.
