    Great. The Mayor implies that cops are to blame for black kids getting killed. Protesters marching to the chant of "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!" Ambulance crews and public defenders posting pics showing people pointing pistols at cops heads.

    Well, mother****ers, if you really wanted to start a war this is the way to do it.

    Except rw talk radio isn't advocating for acts of terrorism and the no justice no peace crowd is. What do you think no justice no peace means?

    I'm going to be an optimist here and suggest that maybe some good can come from this heinous, cowardly act, and that the death of these two men will have some benefit.

    Let's hope that the likes of Di Blasio and Holder and Sharpton get a grip on their rhetoric, tone things down, and take a second look at what they've wrought and look for serious dialogue between the police and black leadership.

    Secondly, only the truly vulgar and sub-human will be out protesting white officer/black criminal shootings now - this may actually calm that discontent and shake up some of those in the protest crowds who were calling for the deaths of police officers in retribution.

    Thirdly, let's hope we see some of those in professional sports and other high profile fields who made fools of themselves with their "hands up, don't shoot" nonsense will also see they were played for fools and give recognition to the good work so man brave men and women do to protect our cities and way of life.

    Finally, I'm hopeful this is the end of the "war" and not the beginning. Those who support police and the work they do aren't lawless or destructive so you won't see looting or violence from them as a result of these two officers being killed. You'll see compassion for the families and a strong, silent determination to fully support police going forward. That should help to keep any talk of "war" from materializing or going further.

    Has anyone NOT seen this as totally predictable?

    I would imagine they mean the protests will continue until they get what they perceive as justice. Just the same, the point is that people in power or with a microphone should measure their words as there are plenty of nut jobs out there they might just inadvertently inspire to commit violence.

    Nah. What we have is public officials right up to and including the President of the United States who have chosen to promote the idea that cops are the cause of an antagonistic relationship between civil authority and the black community. We have them tacitly promoting rhetoric that cops actively seek to ruin the lives of black kids.

    These guys not only accept but encourage the idea that riots, looting and violence are an understandable reaction to perceived injustice and that when the system spits out results you don't like that the reason for that is racial bias. Ever since the Henry Louis Gates incident this administration chosen to drive the wedge deeper into the racial divide rather than try to heal it and the death of these two cops is part of that result.

    I thought the protests WERE peaceful? What you wont admit, is that its an implicit threat of violence-its a mob saying "do what I like or I will get violent." And now they have.

    I expect some lefty apologists might try to suggest that.

    Sure:

    Most recently -
    Alleged Pennsylvania cop killer charged with terrorism - CNN.com

    Hatriot Politics Created the Las Vegas Killers - The Daily Beast

    But then lets not forget the Oklahoma City bombing either.

    Which is my point. People on both sides that have an audience should measure their words. You never know what kind of a nut job you are going to inspire, inadvertently or not, to commit violence.
