Tyler Durden's picture

The police killings are back. Two cops in Iowa were fatally shot early Wednesday and the gunman is on the loose following what appeared to be an "ambush-style attack", the local police said.

The Des Moines Police Department said in a news release that the shootings took place early Wednesday. Officers responded to a report of shots fired at about 1:06 a.m. and found an Urbandale Police Department officer who had been shot. According to the police statement, an Urbandale police officer was found shot to death near a high school in suburban Des Moines around 1 a.m. local time.

The Associated Press adds that Des Moines officers responded to assist. About 20 minutes later, a Des Moines officer was found shot. Both officers have died.

Des Moines police said both shootings “appear to have been ambush-style attacks” and the assailant is on the lam.

The Des Moines Police Department said suspect information is being developed. The agency didn't immediately release any other information but said a news conference was planned for 5 a.m.

The conference and local updates can be followed live after the jump courtesy of CBS.

Wait until Hillary supporters start to kill FBI....she's crazy and dangerous. Who gave the hit order? Hillary? Creamer? Sharpton?

These attacks will help Trump. I have long suspected that Hillary/Soros/DNC had influence over these attacks because we had a rash of them a while back. Trump made good use of them in his call for "law and order" and then they suddenly stopped cold. We went from a low intensity war on cops to nothing as soon as trump started mentioning them.

The AP guidebook tells reporters NOT to mention the race of a perp if not white. Now the FIRST thing the police will say over the radio if they are looking for a perp is: SEX, then RACE. But in today's Tribe owned media you will NOT see the race of the offender listed nor his victim UNLESS the victim is of a privileged class, i.e. NON-White.

For example the other day in Indiana, I believe it was, a "Black Israelite" has been shooting up police stations and leaving hate Whitey notes then he went hunting Whites and shot to death an elderly White man. Left note saying Whites must die, etc. Which is the THEOLOGY of the Black Israelites as well as the YAHWEH Florida group which hunted and murdered many Whites in Florida and their leader who ordered the murders was early paroled.

This guy is responsible for so much evil:

White dude...drop the RNC anti BLM talking points, Statist.

Government needs you to pay taxes's picture

And it can, IF there is meaningful reform in the ways police interact with the citizenry.  When I see military snipers, armored vehicles, and lots of automatic military rifles deployed by .gov at a Native American pipeline protest, I really get fired up to stick it to the State.  Police thievery (civil asset forfeiture) and rules of engagement vis-a-vis use of lethal force must be meaningfully amended.  If it is not, and the same murderous tactics continue to be routinely used, then more will join the ranks of those looking to take out a pig.  We're seeing this already.  Having the State escalating the use of force/violence in law enforcement IS NOT the answer.

Distraction - everyone on twitter has been waiting for this type of thing since FBI Friday. Myself included.

Last week I went out to the range to let off some steam.  When I get there i see the police had closed one of the ranges for a practice day.  It was interesting to see them in full swat gear, ARs vests...basically looking like they were about to deploy to Afghanistan or Iraq.  This is the police not military! So I watched them for a while and did my best attempt at a facial expression that was somewhere between disgust and please don't shoot me.  When I couldn't stand it any more, watching them armed tax collectors practice to kill me...I set up my RPR and practiced what I'm preparing for... Well they all seemed to be interested in what I was doing all of a sudden. All branches of .gov are infested!  Absolutely time to drain the swamp!   The tree of liberty needs pruning.

I have never been on a range where police/SWAT are practicing in full uniform, personally.  But I did find a way to stop all range activity and make people say "what the hell was that??".  My auto-loader shotgun.  7 rounds of rapid-fire 12 gague.  Loud. yes, but instead of punching little holes in a piece of paper with 9mm or .223, the paper target basically just disintegrates (especially if you're just using bird shot).  Just little tatters of it left hanging from the clamp.

Then you just hit the button to casually reel the target back in like "What?  Why are you looking at me like that?"

I have no idea why auto-loaders aren't more popular.  You wouldn't buy a single-action hand gun for home defense any more, so why would you use a shotgun you have to manually rechamber every round?  Yet, somehow people are still surprised when they see/hear one of these babies in full-anger mode.

Gotta wonder if those cop assholes would pucker a bit watching someone with a 'Fuck the police' tee shirt putting ~50 rounds of Barrett .50 downrange.  All that body armor isnt worth shit if you get stung by a .50.

Respectfully disagree, hopefully these are the first shots in the 2nd revolution.

This is Obama's legacy. His BlackLivesMatter movement is murdering police officers.

Tiwin's picture

Normally agree witcha greg , but the cops have brought this on themselves by killing 1200 Americans a year without benefit of a trial by jury. Very Unamerican
Turns out BLM aint the nigger this time, how they gonna spin it, crazy gun nut white guy?Probably.

What are the odds the killer is a black man with a long arrest record and very little time behind bars?  90%?

Black lies matter, because the socialist jew run media keeps repeating them as fact...
Inciting blacks to acts of gun violence is the name of the game!
Then the socialist j00 run media will call for the abolition of the 2nd Amendment....when it's gone all the rest will follow.

These are Hillary supporters giving some "Change you can beleive in!" to the police. Or is it "Strength thru Unity" they gave them?

 

I am surprised Hillary didn't blow up the entire police station!

I dont completely disagree with you, but blacks turning to islam just shows how truly fucking stupid they are:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_slave_trade

Anyways, we'll give them the choice of places they can be deported to, and given the histroy above, Israel will certainly be on the list lol

What are the odds the killer is being paid by a shell group for the Clinton campaign?

It looks like the Tree of Liberty is finally starting to get watered.
Many on here spout that rhetoric and simultaneously condemn someone who has the balls to act.

Once again Fuck the police.

...who is tied to black Russian trrrists that grope women on commercial airliners & don't pay their taxes...lol.

And on that "tax" reference, I would just like to point out to the fever swamp that is...the .gov press corp...Hillary & Bill are running one of the largest tax dodges on the planet called the Clinton Foundation. All they have to do is pull its amended tax filings (because they had to amend them once "irregularities" were found in them) and see that 94-95% of...ahem...donations...go not to...chair-it-teee...but to the foundation ITSELF.

At this point I need to remind the Attention Deficit Disorder afflicted .gov press corp of two very important things because the above contains two entire sentences to comprehend:

1. The "foundation" is run by the Clinton Crime Family and their crony's.

2. Charity (that is to say, the poor) only get 5-6% of the millions of dollars in "donations" the "foundation" takes in.

2. Charity (that is to say, the poor) only get 5-6% of the millions of dollars in "donations" the "foundation" takes in.

 

The .gov press corp will simply say ... "well, 5 - 6 %  is all that is required" ... and they would be right.  

Of course what is minimally required is not exactly philanthropy instead it's usually either endowment building or in this case fraudulent transfers to insiders.
