3 Oakland cops killed in 2 related incidents

Three Oakland police sergeants were shot and killed and a fourth officer was critically wounded Saturday in a pair of related incidents that together rank among the deadliest attacks on law enforcement in California history.

A fifth officer, a member of the SWAT team that killed the suspect police held responsible for the shootings, was treated for minor injuries and released.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I apologize, but given the actions of the police in recent months (as evidenced by stories further down this page today) I am having a very hard time sympathizing with their fate or condemning the shooter.

Given the sheer number of innocent people killed by the police either with tasers or kicking down the wrong doors, and other criminality wearing a badge, I fully understand how some people might feel like shooting back when attacked is their best option.
