    If only there were some armed security at the police station this never would have happened!

    Three New Jersey police officers shot in police station - ky3.com

    Three New Jersey police officers were shot early on Friday at their police station, and one was in surgery for his wounds, a hospital official said.

    The suspected gunman, who had been brought to the Gloucester Township Police station for a domestic incident, was killed in the exchange of gunfire, local TV reported, citing police officials. Gloucester is in central New Jersey about 16 miles outside of Philadelphia.

    "A violent struggle occurred while the suspect was being processed," Gloucester Deputy Police Chief David Harkins said, according to Philadelphia TV station NBC10. The man was able to grab a gun and then opened fire.

    In honesty of report the shooter did use one of the officer's guns.

    Are police officers armed? His gun did not protect him?

    My uncle was a patrolman in St. Louis City for a dozen years. He said he always feared domestic calls the most of all.

    And no, the fact that this guy was surrounded by other armed individuals didn't stop him.

    Tackle the problem that violence has become the "weapon of choice" to address the problem of being wronged, and much of this will go away.

    When did all these supposedly normal people become so angry that they thought violence became the only solution?

    And when did everyone else become so paranoid that they think more violence will stop any of this?
