[i]"OAKLAND, Calif. - A police officer was battling for his life and three more were dead after a parolee with an “extensive criminal history” opened fire at a routine traffic stop and hours later gunned down members of a SWAT team searching for him.
The gunman was also killed Saturday, capping a day of violence that the Oakland Police Department said was the worst in its history. Never before had three police officers died in the line of duty on the same day."[/i]
With the current topics in PWI,I know this will turn into an “interesting” discussion. But keep in perspective that three(possibly four) public servants lost their lives doing the job required of them and deserve the utmost respect.
