    Interesting headline. I wonder why they inserted a military angle to this tragic event, which didn't even happen on military property?

    has the markings of a planned hit
    possibly, the targets were very good at law enforcement, causing them to become targets

    the legality and stealth of handguns make such crime more possible
    the story did not state that handguns were used, but i am guessing the assassins did not arrive at a public place with long guns to do their dirty work

    This is horrible. God bless the families of those officers. I hope they find the suspects quickly and get them off the streets.
    WTF??
    An "ambush"? On police?
    I've never heard of such a thing.
    This is so awful.

    This is horrabile, but I wonder why they put a millarty on it. When it didn't happen in the base . My hope and prayers goes out to the family of the fallen officers. This is a great way to shorten your life by going after police officers. I hope that its not some nut job who thinks the police were their to take their guns away. I too think that it sounds like a hit from gang bangers myself... I beleive that these officers were good at their jobs, and were good targets for gangbangers, because it sounds like a hit to me at least.

    Possibly because the air force base is the most notable land mark in the area.

    Hush now!! Don't you know it is wrong to mention gun control!!

    I feel for these officers and any law enforcement personnel who are killed in the line of duty.

    But if you want a good argument for gun control - look at the death rates of law enforcement officers between America and Britain

    Carbine styled assault rifles and shotguns are just as concealable under a heavy coat, especially this time of year in Washington state.

    more likely, they were crooked cops with connections to drug cartels or some sort of organized crime group. So that group took the dirty cops out. A GOOD thing for us all.

    You see the problem about the "legality and stealth of handguns" part. It wouldn't have been possible if the people(civilians....or is the right word slave?) had the same ability as cops to carry concealed guns on them. That way the bad people wouldn't have gotten away or have had the possibility to carry out such a crime.

    So are nearby cities. Most people in this country have no clue where McChord AFB is; but chances are, they've heard of Tacoma and definitely Seattle.

    Of course local residents will know immediately where Parkland is, since that's where the shootings took place. So I fail to see the point of using McChord as a reference.
