  1. Those people who put their lives on the line should have extra protection against murderers. Anyone convicted of killing an officer (or other first responder) should be sentenced to five years’ hard labor, followed by execution. Give them the double whammy, it’s all they deserve. The five years allows time for any error in the conviction to be determined, and then the execution takes place.

  2. This is the same insanity and murderous spree that we had one Obama was in office and he did nothing rob cops are being killed left and right and it’s happening all over again we need to get these evil people out of office and come November let’s all vote for Republican so we can get the house and the senate back because enough is enough
