California officer shot and killed after responding to crash identifie
Police officer dead, another wounded in LA County
A veteran officer was killed and another injured after a parolee opened fire on them after they responded to a traffic incident today in Whittier, California, police officials said.
The officers responded to a reported incident — in which a driver, who police said was driving a stolen car, rear-ended multiple other vehicles — around 8 a.m.
Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect, who was not named, moved his car around the corner after the collisions.
When officers arrived on the scene, the other drivers, who had refused to give the suspect a ride, indicated that he had moved his car.
The officers, who did not know at the time that the car was stolen, made contact the suspect and went to pat him down, and he pulled out a gun and opened fire, police said.
“When they got the call, it was just a traffic accident, and they didn’t know what they had,” Corina told reporters. “When they went to contact him, that’s when the shooting happened.” Canada Approves Prescription Heroin to Combat Opioid Crisis

Corina said the suspect was 26, a “known gang member” and was armed with a semiautomatic handgun. He was released from jail a week ago.
well, at least he was pointing his gun in the right direction.
Finally! It’s been too long since we’ve gotten the great news of a pig enforcer getting smoked.
After a long career of enforcing unjust laws against victimless acts, violating the Bill of Rights, and probably breaking statute laws himself, this pig was close to retirement. He would have enjoyed his ill-gotten pension for years.
Fortunately, KARMA had something to say about that.
“One officer was killed and another injured in a shootout Monday…”
Damn shame one survived, however. Still…
The writer of the story, Jim Hoft, needs to review the definition of the word, “ambush”. To militarize a story, about a shooting between law enforcement and a street corner scum bag, serves no purpose, other than to fan the flames of emotion.
