Enough of this crap!
This is getting way out of control. We are losing our police officers more than ever before and the outgoing administration is the cause. This is so heartbreaking that this has become the norm and we all watch this play out like we are watching a violent movie in the comfort of our homes.

From Fox News:
A Tacoma, Wash. police officer died late Wednesday after being shot several times while responding to a domestic violence call, officials said.
The male officer, who has not been identified, was shot by a suspect believed to be barricaded inside a home on Tacoma’s east side with a gun. The officer was pronounced dead at 9:13 p.m. local time after undergoing emergency surgery at Tacoma General Hospital.
“We’ve suffered a great loss and I think the community has suffered a great loss,” police spokesman Loretta Cool said. “I don’t know how to put that into words.”
Cool said the incident began at around 4 p.m. when two officers responded to the home after a report of a verbal dispute. She said the officers called for backup “a very short time later” and shots were fired almost immediately after reinforcements arrived.
Though authorities believe the suspect is still inside the home, Cool said it’s possible the suspect could have left the area while police were removing the wounded officer from the scene.

@KING5Seattle Terrible; domestic violence is epidemic. I hope the shooter’s partner is okay during this standoff.
