Speedy recovery for the Troopers

3

Prayers for the officers speedy recovery. This is the second time this month I've heard of LEO's hurt in an explosion. I think SIX were burned about a week ago with some idiot who held his wife hostage and blew the house up. Is this the new weapon of choice now?

I keep hearing people complain about wanting gun control, so what about exploding buildings, bombs, chemical and/or biological or germ warfare? Because I've heard of Anthrax attacks and other types. So do we just ban guns and let the wolves run loose? What about criminals using cars to run officers down.

The other thing I'm noticing is that the scum who are hurting or killing our LEO's end up dead a lot on the scene, so how will the death penalty stop them?

I think when a criminal is arrested ONCE for a felony, drugs or violent crime, they need to STAY in prison. I'm tired of crime and repeat offenders. It may not work 100% of the time because we will always have violent offenders, but if someone KNOWS they're going to be put in a prison for a LONG TIME, they may think twice. Also, no more TV and ass kissing in prisons. Let them sleep on the damn ground. I don't care anymore. Draft them and drop them off in Syria or Afghanistan, etc., and tell them to fight or see how far they can run. If they end up getting shot, oh well.

I will take my feelings and issues up with God. Not only have I been to at least ten LEO funerals (and had more LEO losses), I am also a victim of violent crime several times - all by "repeat offenders" with a LONG list of felonies and convictions. I had 3 guns pulled on me as a citizen, and the police had to kill the first guy. I should have been killed at least five times, living in crime infested Crimeafornia, and I'm now in a much better state and we can CCW here. I've had so many nightmares after the unprovoked attacks on me that I can't even give a number as to how many times I woke up in a cold sweat and shaking like a leaf. Or going to the damn store to shop and see some guy who looks like my attackers and brings those memories back up again. Or how many times I've had to leave a restaurant or store in panic. I know this happens to our LEO's too, and it's time we all stand together. I may be a senior, but I'm damn tired of our LEO's being hurt and killed, and more than anything, and we have their sixes out here. Citizens here don't take kindly to criminals, especially those who attack our law enforcement.

Great write up Grannieswithglocks!! Thankfully no Trooper was killed. Speedy recovery for those hurt I hope. As for me still getting over Rodney King in Atlanta. Some recovering takes over 25 years and still have pain! But protection has greatly improved in those years.. STAY STRONG AND SAFE MY BLUE BROTHERS AND SISTERS!! ALWAYS BLUE!!

I'm speaking directly to grannie. Have you sought treatment to help you with the PTSD you are obviously suffering from? It is important that you do. All the more important, as you are exercising your right to CCW. As a longtime CCW proponent, I firmly believe that the more law abiding citizens that are armed, the better. However, an armed citizen needs to be clear-headed and not subject to debilitating panic attacks. You owe it to yourself to get help for your emotional trauma.
