Three lives lost for no apparent reason. How horribly sad. My sympathies are extended to the families of the slain West Virginia troopers and the families they've left behind.

Chances are, there is a perfectly good reason, unamed bridges tempt god to put names on them.

What are you saying? Are you saying that I are a family member, what? You're is the contraction for YOU and ARE. YOUR is relevant to possession, like, "What if it was YOUR family member.

I'd hope that my family members, if they were stunted enough in life and education and lacking other job opportunities and were forced to take a job as an armed human garbage collector, would at least be street smart and responsible for following procedure and policy. By doing so take ownership of their responsibility to protect their own lives professional gun fighters and not be out witted by an amateur.

It's not like this amateur shooter walked in on these two cops whilst they were in a coffee shop pounding down crullers, they should have either found the gun or professionally shot their attacker dead before they were subsequently shot. Winners get to home and bang the prom queen, loosers inherit the earth.

first of all everyone who puts on the green uniform is very well trained.
Second they were doing their job professionally
Third everyone makes mistakes, they unfortunately failed to located his weapon.
Fourth the suspect no matter what occurred before hand had any right to take the lives of such fine gentlemen doing their job to protect YOU And every other citizen of this state
Fifth you don't have the right to say they weren't following policy and procedure they were.
Sixth unless you step up to the plate and are willing to do what they were willing to do, you have no idea what you are talking about. It takes someone very special to do their job and I don't believe you could handle it.

Don't get mad at me because two professional gun fighters trained at the tax payer's expense, got out witted by an amateur, that's not my fault.
