    I'm just stunned. A man walks into the coffee shop where 4 police officers are working on paperwork and turns around and shoots them. What stuns me the most is that this man was walking the streets.

    Please keep in your thoughts the families of Sgt. Mark Renninger and Officers Ronald Owens, Tina Griswold and Greg Richards.

    That was an execution or a payed hit. I'm sure the fact that they were cops had a lot to do with it but there is something more going on. If it was not just about the ones that were killed why did they not kill the other people in the shop. Why leave witnesses?

    Quote:If you read about the man, he is mentally unstable. Six days ago, I believe, he was released on bond on a case of raping a child. He has other felonies pending, he's been convicted of other felonies... the guy made his wife and children get naked on Sundays for 5 minutes... the man should not have been walking the streets. He's assaulted officers in the past. He claims to be Jesus...

    I'll be praying for those officers and their loved ones and for all of the officers. I just saw this on tv...So sad...but I'm sure our prayers and thoughts will count for much at such a time.

    Thanks for bringing this to all of us.

    Have a blessed day.
