Dallas PD takes another hit...Two officer seriously injured in shooting...

Note:  Thanks to Kali for correcting me on an image I posted.  No disrespect intended just a lack of knowledge on paying respect to those injured in the line of duty.

Two Dallas police officers and a civilian were shot Tuesday after responding to a Home Depot. A manhunt is underway for the shooter.

A tweet from the Dallas Police Department asked for prayers for the officers, who were critically wounded, and their families.

The shooting happened about 4:30 p.m. in Lake Highlands near U.S. Highway 75, according to reports. 
Wow.  Dallas PD keeps getting gut punched...is that city becoming the Chicago of the south?  I don't recall any city in this region suffering this many officers being shot.

Not banging on those guys at all.

Not one bit.

But they need to get a bit more tactical and a bit less community policing if this is the reality.

Why do I say that?

Because if society gets to a point where killing cops becomes a passing fancy then we are on the verge of losing our civilization...that means anyone can be shot at anytime for any reason....that would mean bastards like me would switch to Glock 17 open carried with two mags on the belt.

If cops are being shot then that means we're close to anarchy.  It was ok during the Wild West because population levels were low.  In today's world that would be messy.

I know about bad cop shootings.  I know about cops being used to generate money for municipalities.  I know  the controversy.

But name a more visible enforcer of social norms and behavior.  You can't.  For better or worse they're the gate keepers for a peaceful society.

God bless in Dallas.  Hope those LEO's get well quick...and I hope they get to the bottom of why they're suffering a rash of these incidents.
