First off, my condolencses to the families of the murdered police officers in this article; http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091130/..._officers_shot
I do not in any way mean to come off that these officers in any way deserved to be killed.
Now, what do I get from the recent events in Seattle? I get that four on duty police officers were sitting in a coffee shop (used to be doughnut shops) working on their computers. I don't care if what they were working on was work related or not, why would four officers need to be sitting in a public venue, all together, doing their paperwork? It just makes officers look bad that they are all sitting together in a coffee shop instead of being in seperate places where their presence could be more helpful if needed.
Then we have the Seattle version of the Keystone Cops who shoot up a house, claim to have wounded a suspect, only to find out that there was no one even in the house.
Only having this event to judge by, I must ask; are all police in Seattle inept dolts?
