    A 12 GAUGE SHOTGUNI thoght it was an automatic weapon whos sole purpose was the hunting of humans.Sorry Chief but shotguns were designed to hunt game birds,I realize if a kid got stopped with a paintball gun you would use the same terminology

    The cops were armed with guns designed to hunt men too and seeing how its stolen it could just as easily be an officer's shotgun.

    I have to go to Newark, NJ on business occasionally and I go over to Jersey City for lunch many times. I am totally on edge when I am there, especially since I can't carry. What a dump that place is.

    I agree: This shooting reminds me of the four cops that were shot and killed in San Francisco a few months ago. Two seasoned motor-cops were killed in a routine traffic stop, with the subsequent killing of two SWAT members who responded less than an hour later. Storming doors when its known that a subject(s) is armed and ready to shoot is markedly unintelligent. That “Medal of Valor” is only cool if you live to wear it.
