Default Memphis Police officer dead, another in critical condition

This morning around 8am central two officers were shot at or around what is desribed as a drug house. One officer has died and one is in critical condition in the Med. Please pray for the families.

It is coming out that the shooter was shot in the chest, also at the Med. It is being said thru leo friend the perp is a 15 year old.

Why is he not in school instead of shooting police. Memphis has become a third world city with nightly shootings in all areas.

Too often there is no rhyme or reason.
This one makes less sense than most:

Other than being a dick, no one is really sure what this guy's problem was. It happened within earshot of my house.

And people wonder why I just stay the hell out of there since I no longer work there. After trying to take my ex out for a good time on beale street and being chased by an overly large latino with a knife, I don't go to Memphis without reason. And "fun" is no longer a reason for me.

Downsouth,

Prayers to them from US here in Central Tennessee! Lost 3 good friends in the line of duty over the years. God Bless the family and families involved.
Also for those families of the children and teachers killed today in Connecticut. And also for the survivors!

I'm pretty faithful to the king's palace for grub, and the black diamond for drinks and music, but I'm always up for trying something new! If I find myself there again I'll be sure to check them it! Thanks

This is a terrible thing to happen. What is worse is that it is not getting any attention because something even worse has happened in Conneticut. What is happening to our country? Where are the people coming from? I guess this is what happens when no one believes in God any more.
