    America 1st: Why are you so mean to black people. You are all over the bloggs praising a cold blooded killer. Then you make a reference to that poor dude they dragged and killed. I think you are off and no one likes your stupid racial trash talk. If you were here, I would punch you. Idiot!

    America 1st thrives in the vitriolic BS he spews, because he gets a rise out of everyone who responds to it. He is a coward who gets his pitiful rocks off trying to get us all ticked, and he succeeded, because look at all of our answers. What a tool!

    As for this thread, as I've stated before, condolences to the family and fianceé of the policeman who was basically a sitting duck for an aszhole loser who was trying to get initiated into some thug gang by shooting a cop. D.i.c.k!
    And no, cops who are corrupt should not get a free pass because they're cops. Most of the time, they don't, either. So can it!
    Last, but not least, if our lovely politicians want to trim the budget, they could start with trimming their salaries and trimming the lifetime health benefits and perks they get because they are/were elected officials. I'm all for giving these guys SOME benefits, but if they're voted out- effectively "fired" by the voters-they should no longer get any benefits at all-do the unemployed still get benefits from their former employers...let alone for LIFE? Nope! Why should our US reps?
    OK, rant over-
    DA BEARS!!!!!

    @banasy: You're right-sad about Officer Matlosz. America 1st is a **!!* who does have pitiful rocks, but kind of hard to ignore all idiots of the world. Yea, cops don't get a free ride; it's harder on them cuz more is expected. Have a good week.

    banasty I agree. People such as him are not worth me wasting the time to respond to his remarks. Officer Matlosz was well respected in his Department and also by the community. He was trying to help by cleaning up Lakewood in an area that was ripe with gang activity. The shooter has been identified and also has been connected to "The Bloods". Wether he was an actual member or just a wannabe I am not sure. In response to the negative comments about cops. Are there bad cops. Answer..yes. There are also bad Drs, Chefs, Mechanics, Politicians (I could go on for days). Point being one bad apple does not justify your hate filled comments. Being a former Fire Fighter and EMT, people "liked" to see our lights and hear our sirens. The PD on the other hand have been villafied because of the actions of the people they are trying to protect. Speeding, DWI and fighting are not a right that you have been granted. Break the law, do the time. But the next time you have been a victim of a crime you wonder where all the cops are. mre to come.

    @ american1st
    MLK preached non volenc.e. He preached justice and equality for all. He wanted every one to get along and to be equal.Al sharpton tries to help every one who is not being treated faily. He would even help u tralor park if u need it. A lot of people thats racist don't like him because he talks the truth.Listen to him sometimes maybe u might learn something.
