    Facebook caption for this story: "Five Philadelphia police officers have been shot in an active shooter situation!"

    https://www.democratandchronicle.com...xq7i8W486OzK7o

    Actual situation? "A gunman who shot and wounded six Philadelphia police officers trying to serve a drug warrant surrendered early Thursday morning following a tense hourslong standoff, authorities said."

    This was a damn warrant raid and the perp started shooting back. BUT......it's going in the books as an "active shooter" event.

    Stop the bus, I want to get off.

    Read the comments on the article, this is what we're dealing with....folks that stop reading after the sensationalized headline and start firing off their opinions without even bothering to read the details. Typical replies in the comments about the article I just linked:

    "Great. Another Trump supporter going ballistic with guns in America. If this is what MAGA looks like, no thank you. Thanks NRA and trump. When does the insanity end."

    "So. Five armed policeman couldn't stop a "frenzied shooter." Imagine that. And some people think the solution is more guns. Yeah. That's the ticket. More guns. Tell the injured and dead that - more guns."

    "Yet, we are still trying to make a decision about guns in America, hope your son or daughter is not one of the officers shot today. What's it going to take for you NRA jackasses who are against gun control to tell the rest of the gun owners the truth? This is not an effort to take anybody's gun's as these scare tactic's are still being used, but clearly something needs to be done now."

    "Its good that citizens are holding cops accountable for their crimes against the people...today philly and riverside yesterday. Hopefully this continues."

      Have you seen the video of the local Philly residents heckling and throwing things at the police officers who were walking towards the scene of the standoff?

      Clearly they were all terrified of the crazed right wing gunman.

        Maj Toure is running for political office in Philly. I'm really hoping he wins.

          This was on news last night and my MIL says this is because the cops are outgunned... criminals have better guns than the police. I normally stay out of politics in my in laws house but just dropped my head and said "that is simply not true". When pressed I just said some police departments are better armed than the military and dropped it.

            You are 100% correct.Almost every police officer in the county you live in turns out with a patrol carbine in their vehicle.Criminals do not have better guns than the police.In addition to armaments,training and tactics has also vastly improved over the last two decades.Techniques that were once exclusive to SWAT teams are now being taught to beat cops due to the fact that they will be the first on the scene during an active shooter event and need to take immediate action.
