2 Baltimore officers shot during traffic stopOriginally Posted by 9news
It's getting really rough out there, fellas. Is it just me, or have incidents involving shot coppers skyrocketed this year?? Keep your heads down!
tapout, any word on this shoot? Were these your boys or city cops?"If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Whole article: 2 Baltimore officers shot, wounded - UPI.comOfficers' return fire killed the suspect, who had pulled an automatic handgun,( I wonder if it was an AK-47 automatic handgun? Did the cops use service revolvers?) as police attempted to arrest him, Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld III said.
The officers were among three in plainclothes who stopped a car with three occupants in East Baltimore, The Baltimore Sun reported.
The suspect's shots struck one officer in the cheek, breaking his jaw, and the second in the hand. The officers, who were not identified pending notification of relatives, were to undergo surgery at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center Sunday.
They were reportedly conscious and asking about each other.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

Prayers for a full and speedy recovery for the injured officers.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
