This is a discussion on More Reason Too CCING Cop Kill In Shooting within the Law Enforcement, Military & Homeland Security Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; UPDATE: Officer Scotty Richardson dies after shooting in Aiken...
I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.
Condolence go out to the family of Officer Richardson.
Not sure what this has to do with reason to CC though.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

I think the OP is saying people should concealed carry because even cops can't protect us at times....?

I'm sorry the Officer lost his life doing his Job,The POS that shot him just insured that his family members will remember the holidays as an empty void of the loved one they lost.IMHO anybody that Kills an LEO in the performance of their duties should be hung after conviction at the earliest opportunity

I don't know the LEO personally, but I know some who do. He was a good man and will be missed terribly.
Another DC member is taking care of his arrangements.

RIP brother, you will be missed. May your family, friends and coworkers find peace in this troubling time.

I think that there should be public hangngs for a number of violent crimes.
so, about my sammich.......
Prayers for Officer Richardson, his family, co-workers and friends. Death penalty needs to be used in this case, I don't really care if it's used at the time of arrest.

Get out the dull needle and no alcohol on the cotton...it's about all the suffering these two dirtbags will get (post #1 & #11)...they both should just be tightly bound and tossed to the gators...gators gotta' eat, too!

In heaven for generous, benevolent people.
There is special place in hell for copkiller's, as well as all cold blooded murderers.
Bless the DC member.
Rest in peace Officer Richardson
May his family find peace and comfort, knowing their husband/father was a courageous, kind, wonderful person, who brightened the lives of others.
May God and family stand by his widow and children.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

"A Part of America Died"
Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.
The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.

Rest in peace brother.
