Anyone in Pittsburgh?

Did you catch any of the memorial service on t.v. today?
It was so heartbreaking to watch.
I REALLY hope this guy get's what is coming to him. How can you kill three cops? All because "Obama" is going to take your guns away soon.

  • Tonight was the last home game for the Penguins. It's the "Shirts off our backs" game where they take off their Jerseys and throw them to fans in the crowd. Underneath their Jerseys, they had on Tshirts remembering the Fallen officers.

  • From where are people getting this ridiculous notion that Obama is going to take their guns away? Some people will believe anything!

  • Hey stiflersmom....Why couldn't you just leave this as a rememberance posting to those who have fallen?

    You have sullied the good intentions of those officers and thier duty by bringing politics into this!

    My hubby is former law and I have several family members that are as well. When they are out on beat, they don't care who the guy next to them voted for. And BTW they all LOVE Obama and believe that he will help the civil servants causes!!!

    Bashing and rememberance can't go hand in hand.

  • The guy was a lunatic. He went on a rampage because he think's Obama is going to take his guns away. He brought politics into it by saying that..not me.

  • Maybe I should clear that up for the rest of you. The guy was spewing nonsense and saying Obama was going to take his guns away. I'm not the one who said that.

  • shake handI understand your explanation and recoginze that I misinterprutted that last line as a political agenda on your part (and not as the "reasoning" behind the shooters actions) Apology to you from me.

  • Well I figured I should clear that up for everyone in general. I didn't say that in the original post.
