  1. Seriously, your both idiots. It's not like the officers just picked a guy off the street and started a gun fight. They responded to an armed subject who had already shot one man. Pay them extra for doing a job you can't do and would probably pee your little boy britches if you had too.

  2. I'll buy their lunch.
