Man who gunned down Oakland, Calif., police officers was suspect in rape case - US News | Breaking National News - cleveland.com That's the tragic story in which 4 officers were shot by one newblit nub that, thank God, is dead now. Good riddance! What I wonder is how he got his gun(s). Because I seriously doubt he could purchase any with his effed up record. Nothing can prepare a cop for a stop where the guy just opens fire. Sad.
