    Do we just need to start a running thread with this gun violence?

    And the money quote:

    Edit: Pretty fucked up story all around. The worst is the cops who died and the two who were wounded, were stuck in the yard because the others responding couldn't get to them because of the gunfire.

    Saw on one of the Pittsburgh TV websites that the first officer who was shot laid there dying for three hours during the whole ordeal, right there in the living room, as the scumbag was just a few feet away shooting out the window.

    Wasn't there a shooting at Radford University this weekend as well?

    Police said Officer Mayhle was married and had two daughters, ages 3 and 6; Officer Kelly was married and had three daughters, ages 11, 16 and 22; and Officer Sciullo was single and engaged to be married.

    Does this shit happen in other parts of the world?

    I'm serious when I ask this.

    It's been a horrible day in Pittsburgh. I heard that there hadn't been a Pittsburgh Police officer killed for like 17 years. This stuff just doesn't happen here. It makes me sick that those officers responded to a domestic call, and when they walked into the house, were shot in the head.

    And don't even get me started on the AK47 thing.

    RIP, but more importantly, thank you for giving your lives to protect us.

    I think an FBI agent was killed this past year in Pittsburgh.

    You are correct, there is no need for an AK-47 in a person's life.
