    NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
    AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!

    let us take a second and tell the truth. This person should have been put to death years ago, he should have never been allowed to walk the streets but liberals force us to let them out. The truth so who really killed them
    According to police officials, Spangler has a lengthy criminal record, including a manslaughter conviction for murdering his own grandmother, Rose Spangler, when he bludgeoned her to death with a hammer in 1980. Spangler Served 17 years in prison for the his crime.

    So if he was able to get a gun in New York.... I guess all the restrictions on the law-abiding are pretty useless..............

    I didn't say he BOUGHT it in New York....I said "...he was able to get a gun in New York...."...He's a felon & it was illegal for him to possess a firearm ANYWHERE IN THE USA!....SO ALL THE GUN LAWS IN THE USA & NEW YORK DIDN'T STOP HIM!

    Almost every fire engine and ambulance is a rolling gun free zone. Even if not, this kind of ambush attack is hard to avoid. Cops get ambushed and shot at the same way, with similar results.

    For the life of me, I do not understand these self centered jerks who, in the process of killing themselves, feel like they need to take others with them.

    I suppose carrying ammo into a fire is a bad idea? Otherwise this doesn't make sense to me.

    No it is not gunman shoots.
    It is life long Criminal let out by a liberal system to pry on a defenseless public again. Time and time again this happens. Almost every time we have a shooting in Milwaukee, and they bother to even try and arrest some one. We find out latter the shooter was released last year after serving 2 years for manslaughter. In one case he had killed two other people and was already out. The others we find have records dating back years. And they are still on the streets.
    He should have been put to death many years ago and if not he should have never been allowed in public again.
    The DA, the parole board the judge they should be charged with murder they are the ones at fault.

    Laws only apply to those that choose to obey them. The rest of us are on our own when others choose not to.

    Good luck with that! I don't trust our judicial system at all. Too corrupt I think. Remember liberals think these people can be "rehabilitated". Simply not possible.

    The only brave thing you do is sign up, after that everything else is just part of doing your job.


    Now can we get someone to make murdering people illegal?!?!
