Four Lakewood police officers shot and killed in 'ambush'

Saw this on Drudge. Pretty crazy. I wonder if more will come to light on this story. Killing four cops in a public place seems like a mob hit.

Another ambush-style cop-killing in Washington, the new Nuevo Laredo.

Obviously, these officers were involved in illegal/illicit activity.

I've been following the updates on Twitter since it broke like an hour or so ago.

Unreal.

About a mile from where I live, I hit that coffee shop 2-3 times a week on the way to work.

Pretty insane.

Pretty scary. Hopefully the shooter is caught soon.

Such a shame. Dirty cops give all cops a bad name.

Doubt it was mob related. Not much of that around Western Washington.

Kosterman thinks it was the work of radicals, I think it stinks.

What am I going to do? I'm going to have a little talk with Santiago

It could be true, but that seems like a big assumption to make. There are plenty of other reasons people would do something like this, either because they don't like cops or they just want the attention or whatever other reasons there are people do crappy stuff.

I think that whoever is calling it an ambush needs to look up the word.

I'm pretty sure the venerable antenna was being whiny and sarcastic with that comment about the activity of the officers.

It was a callback to the LAST "Washington Police Officer Gets Killed in Ambush" thread, in which our most rabid cop-hater, Hokeyboy, made that same baseless assumption.

Re: Four Lakewood police officers shot and killed in 'ambush'

CNN is reporting that one of the officers may have put a round in the shooter before being killed.

Can you really claim your location as Seattle when you're like 40 miles away?

Person of interest that is on the loose had his sentence commuted from Arkansas, one of the reporters already brought up Huckabee... the plot thickens.
