Breaking: Multiple Baton Rouge Officers Killed

Current reports (1220 CDT) say 2 BR officers and 1 East BR deputy killed and 3 injured. 1 suspect killed; possibly looking for 2 others.

I think the initial report was for a man carrying a rifle. He apparently opened fire on responding officers.

UselessToday has cellphone video of part of the attack, I think, and some decent bits of other coverage. Add their domain to the front of this link: /story/news/nation/2016/07/17/baton-rouge-police-shooting/87219860/

CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/17/us/bat...ing/index.html

Edit: Adding WaPo link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...hot/?tid=sm_fb

I'm hearing different versions regarding how it started. One version is a bogus 911 came in and the officers were set up. Another suggested it was a drug deal gone bad and shots were fired prior to LE responding to the call.

The version that seems to be getting the most traction right now is a guy was walking down the street with a rifle and fired at LE as they arrived.

Supposedly, there is still two suspects at large.

Or if we even have a nation in 100 years. That's how real this shit is - and if people don't start waking up there will soon be no turning back

At a time when we should be coming together against possible terror threats we have dirt bags ambushing and murdering LEO's.
May the slain Officers rest in peace and all others be kept safe.

RIP to the slain officers. Hopefully the local leadership can get this in control, cause it sure won't come from the White House.

So preliminary reports ID one of the shooters as Gavin Eugene Long, National of Islam member and ex-Marine. Raging against "crackers" on his YouTube account. If true, I wonder which membership association the media is going to focus on??

Obviously his service as a Marine Corps data specialist did irreversible damage to his psyche.

I'm a little concerned that the last two cop killers were both vets. I'm probably making too much out of that, but still....

It is alarming - not to mention the pinnacle of fucking treason - uh, oath, what oath?

Yeah, "vets"...........that should be the take away here. Not the fact that they're both black racists wanting to kill whitey. I'm sure that's the narrative the media will be pimping soon. And pimping HARD.

Take up as much air time, print space, bandwidth as you can on the vet/gun angle, so less time can spent on the black racist angle. Keep the opposition talking about that, defending against that, so that they can't come up with a cognizant and clear strategy to launch their own "it's black racism" message.

I freely admit I'm probably making too much out of that, especially because neither one was a combat arms MOS. But I wouldn't be surprised to see this turned around on us in the early part of 2017 if Clinton wins.

I don't think you're making to much of it. Not at all. Veterans have already been identified as the primary demographic likely to commit domestic terrorism. These recent shootings are validation of that.

There has to be a focus, and since there can be no focus on the Islam aspect or the racial aspect, that leaves what? It's either their veteran status or the fact that they are male. Probably both.

And yet the editors continually keep allowing this batshit insanity to make its way to print/server.

It's almost like they support the message it's supporting or something. /S
