THAT part would be pretty stupid, even if one stipulated that the government was tyrannical and needed to be opposed... which at this point is still a very dubious assertion. As long as the ballot box remains a viable option for real change, resorting to the cartridge box is premature at best.
Presumably, the disenchantment of the dissidents-come-militants is based on the actions of politicians and similar highly-placed figures... the Big Wigs, in other word. The people who actually MAKE policy and law.
As far as the Big Wigs are concerned, cops are expendable peons. Kill ten cops, kill a hundred, the Big Wigs will merely be annoyed at having lost some of what they would view as their enforcer-peons.
If they were going to actually do something that would really have an impact, assuming they had three working brain cells between them they'd target some of those Big Wigs they are actually pissed at... the ones who actually MAKE the politicies that they hate.
All of this is purely speculative of course. These people, American Citizens, have been accused of a crime of conspiracy... and we all remember "presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty", right?

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
No now it is not justified. However, if we were say in nazi germany and I liked bage and lox, I'd be arguing that yes indeed it would be justified.
And no, currently it is not justified. My point was Catawba said that the government should never be afraid of violence from the people or some such nonsense.
I asked him "even if said government becomes tyranical?"
I made no contention that this government is tyrannical, simply stated as our founding fathers did, that governmnent SHOULD fear you and I.
