All of us will join no doubt in sharing the sense of outrage at the tragic shooting today in Washington State of four Police Officers in a coffee shop. Our deepest condolences go out to to their families.
There are , I know I number of serving and former US police officers on this forum who will be acutely aware that this appears to have been a targeted shooting which somehow makes it all the worse.
Here in Britain we have had our share of tragedies made all the worse by the goulish zeal with which the antis have sought to make gains from such events in the past.
A very sad day.
