I live in Philly, the police commissioner issued a statement along with the mayor, and all involved were on administrative leave pending investigation. Chill guys, this stuff happens all the time. Cop was shot Saturday point blank in car while responding to robbery.
Back in October another officer was walking into Dunkin' Donuts (How ironic) for a ROUTINE security check and just so happens that a robbery is taking place. Shot in the head on Halloween. Both officers were veterans of the police force and both left behind a wife and 3 kids.
I know what they did was wrong, but these guys were pissed on how casual the guys killed the latest slain officer.

Jaygord, sorry to hear about the murders, but when you meet unlawfulness with unlawfulness, the whole justice system breaks down.
Someone has to keep up the standards of law and order. That's supposed to be the police. What kind of message does it send to these gangs if the enforcers of the law are breaking it? Why should they respect the law when the police don`t?
And people, don`t be so stupid as to do the whole "resisting arrest" thing. That is not how you restrain someone.

I grew up and lived in philly my entire life.. Last year we had more that 1 murder a day and this year it is continuing on the same pace. These guys got what they deserved.. I hate how no one sticks up for these officers. We just had a bank robbery and cop murder on saturday. All three of these guys were part of the offense. If i would of saw them in the street, i would of beat there asses myself, then called the cops and told them to beat their asses some more.

Just because someone appears to have committed a crime is no reason for them to be injured beyond what is necessary. The central point of American law is that you are utterly, completely innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Until such time as they can be tried according to fair, legal proceedings, they are as innocent as you or I and do not deserve this beating.
