I just heard on the news that on Tuesday on of our local cops was gunned down when he tried to arrest a person who was wanted on a warrant. This officer was off duty but happened to notice the guy sitting in his car and he called another officer for backup and they went to serve this suspect when the suspect decided to shoot the cop and make himself into the most hated man in my county. People are now calling for lynchings and hangings and are angry at the partner of the slain cop because he didnt just gun the murderer down. I know the second cop couldnt do that because of the area they were in...a gas station parking lot with tons of people around.
Now people want to start to carry guns all the time...locked and loaded! This is the first officer death in our town since 1936. I didnt think everyone liked the cops that well but I guess when people see that thugs are willing to shoot a cop, they think they will shoot anyone.
Tensions are really high here.
