    Good to hear somebody in law enforcement who gets it. This is the only country where law enforcement is regularly gunned down. This is a real patriot:



    "I don't want to hear about how much they support law enforcement," Acevedo said. "I don't want to hear about how much they care about lives and the sanctity of lives yet, we all know in law enforcement that one of the biggest reasons that the Senate and Mitch McConnell and (Texas Sens.) John Cornyn and Ted Cruz and others are not getting into a room and having a conference committee with the House and getting the Violence Against Women's Act (passed) is because the NRA doesn't like the fact that we want to take firearms out of the hands of boyfriends that abuse their girlfriends. And who killed our sergeant? A boyfriend abusing his girlfriend. So you're either here for women and children and our daughters and our sisters and our aunts, or you're here for the (National Rifle Association)."

    Acevedo is an ass. Perhaps if the Democrats were to actually engage in law enforcement there wouldn't be such a problem.

    That what the dead sergeant was doing. Your support for arming criminals is noted.

    The boyfriend had a record and should not have been on the street.

    Solis has a criminal history which includes an assault causing bodily injury to a family member in August 2015, Acevedo said.

    Who knows what else? Apparently your gun laws did not prevent a criminal from acquiring a firearm. Big surprise.

    Violent criminals should be removed from society permanently, or get popped upon conviction with no quarter given.

    A big city police chief in a liberal city is appointed and must say what his masters in the liberal city government tell him to say

    Thanks to the NRA it is easy for criminals to get guns. Repubs want to keep it that way.

    Law enforcement is rarely shot and killed in countries with strong gun control. We bury police regularly here.

    We can hope more law enforcement gets tired of being gunned down and demand gun control.

    22 officers were killed in the South, more than the rest of the country combined

    A 2015 study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that law enforcement homicides were more likely to occur in states with higher gun ownership.

    Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi were in the top 20% for both for gun ownership and law enforcement homicides, according to the study, authored by a University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health research assistant professor.

    Maria Haberfeld, professor of police science at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, told ABC News that the availability of guns in the South is likely one of the reasons for the level of violence against police officers in the region.

    "You have guns; you have more violence," she said. "In the United States, it seems to be a direct correlation."
