Active Shooter situation...6 Officers shot...

https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Gunman-Shoots-Police-Officer-in-Nicetown-Tioga-542724941.html

t least four Philadelphia police officers were shot in the city's Nicetown section Wednesday afternoon, officials said, prompting a massive response to the North Philadelphia neighborhood.

Frantic calls from responding officers came in around 4:30 p.m., according to audio obtained via Broadcastify.

"Officer calls for everything you got. SWAT, long gun," a law enforcement officer can be heard saying on the audio. "I got an officer shot."

SkyForce10 remains over the scene as an unidentified gunman continues to fire at dozens of police officers nearly 30 minutes after officers descended on the corner of 15th and Butler streets.

4. I agree, but remember now, many here consider cops "pigs."

I hope they stay safe.

And I hope no one dies.

5. I don't think people are mad at anything but the bad apples poorly trained.

Some police forces pay crap. I don't hear most here call police pigs.

Disappointing.

8. Some of them have earned that epithet

It would be impolite not to recognize their efforts.

That being said, I don't think anyone here is rooting for more death from unregulated and unfettered firearms.

9. I don't recall seeing anyone call cops "pigs"

People are critical that police often get the benefit of the doubt when the facts on the ground suggest otherwise- maybe you are confusing the criticism (valid and invalid) with the name-calling.

10. Many here want Police to stop killing Black People when they don't have to.

You are broad brushing.

No one at DU wants police to die. SMDH.

12. Exactly!

Stop killing Black people. And if you turn your back or close your eyes when your partner, needlessly shoots an unarmed kid, you ARE part of the problem.

21. Only the ones who are white supremacists,

and there are many. The infiltration is so great, in fact, that the FBI issued a warning about it, several years ago.

17. I read yesterday that violence follows the locations of his speeches.

The statistics are heartbreaking. He incites. He inflames. He brings the accelerant then lights the match. He walks away...laughing.

The violence comes in his wake. That sure did not take long, he was in PA yesterday spewing filth on our dime.

No matter the color of the shooter, he leaves dead bodies behind because of the hate he promotes with glee.

The disgusting POS is loving this.

20. I think that's a big leap of logic.

This apparently was a narcotics bust turned violent. And Trump's Pennsylvania speech took place almost 200 miles from Philadelphia.

22. Because it pisses off Gun-Grabbers.

Never underestimate the power of Spite to motivate humans.
