Damm what the hell, two more cops got ambushed in Iowa no less. This crap pisses me off and I blame the current denizen in the White House. he has been fomenting a war on cops since he got elected. The clown hasn't gotten past his "community Organizer" roots to realize that he is supposed to be President of all the people, not the select groups that form the base of the democrat party.
I am glad that my Dad retired as a Chief of PoPo a few years ago. This constant war on the cops and I wonder if it will be somebody from the BLM movement or some of the unvetted refugees that got dumped over there. I am dismayed, I haven't ever seen it this bad, In the 60's the government supported the Law and Order types and the Police and now you have segments of the government supporting the troublemakers and this will not end well. I pray for the families during this time that they find the peace that they will need through the trying time ahead.
DES MOINES, Iowa --Two police officers were shot to death early Wednesday in ambush-style attacks while they were sitting in their patrol cars, authorities said.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired at 1:06 a.m. and found an Urbandale Police Department officer who had been shot. Authorities from several agencies saturated the area after that shooting, and about 20 minutes later discovered that a Des Moines officer had been shot in a patrol car at an intersection, Des Moines Sgt. Paul Parizek said. The shootings happened about 2 miles apart.
"There's somebody out there shooting police officers. We hope to find him before somebody else gets hurt," said Parizek, who became emotional at times during a news conference.
Authorities are developing suspect information but there was nothing that they were ready to share with the public, Parizek said. Officers are now doing patrols in pairs to better protect themselves, he said.
Parizek said he didn't have any more information about the shootings.
Urbandale is a city in the Des Moines metro area with about 50 officers.
