Where are all the cry babys, who complain when a police officer has to use deadly force in the line of duty, screaming for the officers to be executed?

What is the logic here?this officer has not spoken,issued a command or a threat to this violator. Where are all you gutless cop snipers, who should be calling for justice for this officer and her partner?

I dont expect to many of you to call on justice to prevail in this case.And sadly enough, the perp gave up without incident, so you whineya$$ maroons wont be able to scream about police revenge or brutality in this case, or will you?

My condolences to the families of the officers.

I met Mary through a mutual friend and I was immediately touched by her beautiful personality. She was sweet and very kind. My heart goes out to her lovely family and especially to her daughter. May God be with them as they try to go forward in life.

Police officers are keepers of the peace. We must support and respect these women and men. We don't want to live in this society without their help. The next time you see a police officer take a moment to thank them for protecting your life.

My heart goes out to Mary and the other officer that was shot. May Mary rest in peace and my the other officer have a speedy recovery. I salute you both.

The coward that did this will one day pay the price when he goes to meet his maker. He has gotten away with nothing. We should make an example of this criminal to others that follow in his foot steps. He should be punished to the highest extent of the law. How dare somebody treat the very people that put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe like this. How dare he. I never met Mary but by all the wonderful things I have read about her I know that she was and angel on this earth and continues to be an angel in the next dimension. Mary's daughter must continue on with her life and do all the things that would have made her Mom so proud. She must be a really special person herself to have a Mom like Mary. I will pray for your recovery.
