    flogger, this isn't an anti gun thread. If you want that then may I suggest the 2nd Amendment forum...This is about the difference in reaction from the public...2 deaths, 2 totally different reactions.

    No, in this case vigils should be held, not protests.
    You're not? Will there be riots? My guess is NO....Do you know why?

    There will be no protests. In fact the scummer will be a hero in prison.

    OK then lets look at it from the perspective of police officers killed in the line of duty. Last year the US had 126 officer deaths and the UK had nil. What do you think is the major factor accounting for such a disparity ?

    There really shouldn't be. Justice will be served with this POS.

    Take it somewhere else. That discussion DOES NOT belong here.

    Of course there won't be riots or protests because the perp was caught. There's no perception or reality of injustice relating to the crime. By all appearances justice will be served. If you think the protests and rioting are because someone was shot, you're very limited in your knowledge. The protests and rioting have been because of the perception that justice isn't served when a police officer murders, only when a non-police officer murders.

    Its a very valid comparison given the thread is about yet another needlessly shot policeman
