Its a shame so many people only doing their job and trying to serve their community have died.
It has to be said though and its going to piss a lot you Americans, off, but it needs to be said.
If you didn't have such widespread gun ownership, you wouldn't have anywhere near this amount of police officers being shot and killed.
You can talk about civil rights and the constitution as much as you want, but the families without their brave fathers this Christmas are fatherless, because of your gun laws.
A sobering thought as we all gather together with our loved ones in the next two weeks. Maybe spare a thought for your local police officer as he passes you on your daily business and the incredible dangers he faces getting up every morning just to go to work to feed and cloth his family.
