Texas police officer among 3 killed in apartment shooting

An Arlington, Texas, police officer was among three people killed following a shooting at an apartment complex Tuesday night, officials said.

It is the second fatal shooting in two days of a law enforcement officer in the United States.

On Monday, a Georgia state trooper was fatally shot after a traffic stop in northwest Atlanta.

    This country is going downhill fast and I don't really think our government has a clue as to what is happening at the people level. It"s taken them years to finally start acting on the border. We have so much violence the police have to be more like military then officers. Our courts are to slow, and too easy. We have children that are not respected except for how much money they can get for them from the government. When will we stop rewarding bad behavior.
    I am sad that our officers are murdered just for the uniform they wear. But we are a country that respects very little and we just get worse.

    We had 161 police officers murdered here in Denver this year, about a 20% increace over latst year. But it wasn't the "terrorists", they were murdered by fellow Americans. (not counting illegals)

      You are a moron. there have been 58 Denver policemen killed since the late 1800's when records began being kept. According to "Officer Down" memorial page only 41 of those were due to gunfire. Quit posting lies that you propose as facts.

    I will check and see how many of Denver's police were murdered by illegals. I'll chech how many police were murdered by North American's nationwide while I'm at it. I'll be back later with the stats. Maybe one of you could check how many US police officers were murdered by Central American's.

    I'm near Denver visiting, and happened to catch the 6 o'clock news. It sounded like they were reporting Denver police casualties. 161 police deaths NATIONWIDE. Over 2,000 law-enforcement officers are killed each year, including Sherrifs dep't and dept. of Corrections, FBI, etc. One every 54 hrs. This represents a 37% increase over last year. 59 police officers were killed with guns, 73 deaths traffic related, and 19 died from job-related illness. I found no mention of law-enforcement persons being killed by al Queda or any international terrorists, but mention of domestic terrorists are many.

    We must all be getting seperate articles... I see some people are commenting that muslims are to blame, some that a police was shot, some that are commenting out of anger! Everybody this is your lives that are being hurt, this is an article to inspire emotions to you all! Take time to heal the wounds of your minds! What has been done to us all needs to come to justice, this is not the way to do it! Write out all you hatred within yourself or speak it, you must do it to be able to clear your minds! Start with trying to list what has been done to you, and finsh we records and solutions! This is not my people you are americans, muslims, chrstains drug users, police, etc... Heal your minds please! There is help on the way, when we are ready!

    This country is just getting what it has coming. There is no healing. You reap what you sow even on a national level. If a retarded 12yr. old ran around shooting up the place and pooping on everything, what would eventually happen to him is what we see happening to US.

    I love it when cops are shot down, they deserve it, coz many of them think they are better than everyone, like they are heros, and their not.

    Are the gun nuts happy with this news? Cops are armed and still can't defend themselves. I'm sick and F ing tired of the gun nuts and their stupid F ing logic that having a gun provides protection. Morons.
