God bless him and his family. So sad.
That story sickens me. Poor guy tried to stop the robbery outnumbered 2 to 1 and was gunned down by these miserable dickturds.
He went out with huge balls and honor, if nothing else. Hero for sure.
I really feel for his 9 yr old son right now... that poor kid's world was just destroyed.
Prayers and thoughts to the Fallen officer's Family.
Police Commissioner Ramsey, mentioned in the article, is A great guy who really cares for his Cops....
Philly is lucky to have him.
I was watching the live newscast with Mayor Nutter and the Commissioner earlier. It is terribly sad and infuriating at the same time. As an attorney, I have worked with many law enforcement officers over the years, and I find the lack of respect toward them sickening. These men and women put their lives on the line for us, yet there are those who don't belive in a civilized society and will not hesitate to murder a fellow human being, especially an officer.
Officer Robert Wilson has left behind a 1 year old and a 9 year old. They will grow up without a father.
Sad story that happens far too often. Condolences to all involved.
terrible terrible shame. criminals who can shoot down a policeman are a breed of terrorist, and i'm sure what they stole or wanted to steal was ridiculously cheap compared to a human life. my heart goes out to that brave officer's family.
They were holding up a Game Stop.
He was in there buying a game for his 9y/o who had done well in school.
Where are the protesters ?
Been a rash of Game Stop armed robberies down here in Delaware and the MO and suspects are the same between them.
Sucks for the employees there, but I'm thankful that my oldest daughter quit working there when she did last year.
Prayers and condolences to the officer's family.
This thread is going to be a total shitshow.
There will be none.
Cops lives matter. Won't see that hashtag either.
What would they protest?
I see posts like that daily.
Probably won't be any, since the perpetrators will be appropriately punished
Very sad story.
WTF. A protest against criminals that kill cops? You just never know. At their next meeting, the criminals might debate the prospects of succumbing to public opinion.
Very sad. At least they got the bastards that did it.
What do you mean "here we go" ?
This is a horrible story of an officer doing his dangerous job and losing his life.
Seems cut and dry.
People have lost respect for a lot of police officers around the nation due to systemic racism, but not all police are bad.
Not to mention civil forfeiture causing overzealous officers to make false arrests to obtain property.
The police should be trusted and respected, but it goes both ways.
i think he means there is no public outcry!
that only happens in certain cases of victims of police over reacting to situations. then the media pushes that story for every bit of time they can get.
meh, a cop got killed, and yeah they feel bad for the family, but nothing more will come from it.
you won't see civil leaders or activists screaming from the mountain for people to not add to the violence.
it's just a very different world and imho criminals have the edge. they have media on their side in most cases especially juveniles. they have excuses galore as to why the urban situation is what it is.
in our bgca here we have maybe 21 adults assisting up to 300 youth and trying to keep them from becoming prison or other statistics. actual no's of youths finding the violent side of their world is about 10x the enrollment in our chapter. young mothers with 5-6 kids by their early 20's? not a great recipe for healthy community.
people ignore the problem unless it is in their back yard. leaders of these communities have done nothing to promote civility.
