    Another perfect example of the bloodthirsty nature and gross incompetence of the clowns in blue. They are more than happy to raid an innocent family in the middle of the night and kill their dogs in front of children over a small bag of pot, but when faced with real criminals In a life and death situation they hide outside like the cowards they are while a family is brutalized and massacred. Cowards, all cops are pathetic cowards

      Foolish people think you would be better off without the PD. These monsters will now get their deserved deaths, hopefully timely. Cruel and Unusual it should be! Kudos to the DA for no plea deal!

      Wow the ignorance that is spewing from your computer is unbelievable. You are obviously a complete moron. You are comparing having weed (which by the way is illegal if your stoned mind did not already know that) to the brutal killing of a mother and her 2 daughters. Unbelievable. Let me guess, if you were in charge you would do 1 of 2 things. 1 you would go in there with guns blazing and put not only the hostages lives in danger but all of your co-workers or 2 you would allow your racist mentality to allow this to go on and ignore the call to help some white family. How dare you say something like this.

      I don't recognize archaic laws based on racism in case your stoned mind didn't know that fawn. Do a little research on the history of marijuana prohibition before you make yourself look more stupid than you already do.

    There are many Police precincts across the country that could use some new cops. Just a fact. What good is having a police department that doesn't respond to emergencies? I hope these guys get the full horror treatment behind bars.
