    Two Officers Are Shot Outside Ferguson Police Station[W:263]

    FERGUSON, Mo. — Two St. Louis County police officers were shot early Thursday outside the Ferguson police station, the county police said. The officers’ conditions were not known.The shootings followed protests by several dozen demonstrators, which included occasional clashes with the police and a few arrests. But the situation had been relatively calm for about half an hour when several shots rang out from a distance, and protesters and police officers alike went to the ground.
    After the gunfire stopped, several officers appeared to be dragging a colleague back toward the police station.

    Absolutely senseless violence.

    Edit: Tried to edit thread title to "2" instead of "two" after NYT changed the headline. Not sure if it is going to be reflected by the forum yet, but it is appearing so on my edit screen.

    Stupidity breeds stupidity. This entire fiasco was based on a lie from the beginning and now we have cops getting shot. **** like this makes me sick.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Agreed.

    On a side note pertaining to you avatar, I met Jason Mewes when I worked at a deli in Long Island, NY. He and Kevin Smith, one of my favorite directors, were coming in every morning before my shift began and eating as they were attending at wedding somewhere near by and got there a few days early. I came in early when I learned they had been ordering each morning and caught Jason right before I clocked in. Missed Kevin by about 10 ten minutes. Asked him to sign a brown paper sack I grabbed off the counter. He was cool as hell about it. I lost it in the moving process. Had it been Kevin's, would have taken more care of it. One of the coolest days of my life.

    disgraceful, I hope they get the idiots who did this real soon. There is no justification for this kind of a thing whatsoever.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    I wouldnt blame the cops for not even going into those neighborhoods anymore. Leave the animals to themselves.

    I met Kevin Smith at an animation festival about 15 years ago. Very cool guy. One of my friends was an extra in Jay and Silent Bob strike back. lol.

    I'll get to meet him one day. Not really in a rush to do it. It was cool just running into Jason Mewes as I did without having to search him out as most have done or gone to where he was. Would be kinda of great to have that happen a second time with another one of my favorite stars.

    Eric Holder can add flame-fanning to his "legacy."
