TRAGIC TRAGIC DEATHS of two beautiful humans working as Police officers for you and me.

Two police officers killed in Greater Manchester shooting

Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan.
"A long and dark shadow has been cast across Greater Manchester and my thoughts are with the officers' family, friends and colleagues. We will be doing everything we can to support them over the coming days and weeks."
A 27-year-old woman, who did not want to be named, said her ex-boyfriend had witnessed the shootings. She told the Press Association he had seen someone outside a local house shoot the officers and then throw a grenade in the garden. "He said the officers hit the floor," she said. "Cregan then got into a silver BMW and drove off but he must have then gone on foot shortly after because my friend saw him on Stringer Avenue which is only down the road."
Sir Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, said: "Whenever police officers and staff lose a colleague that loss is felt right across the police family. The thoughts of everyone in policing are with colleagues in Greater Manchester police, family and friends of the two officers at this time."
Derek Barnett, president of the Police Superintendents' Association of England and Wales, said: "Today once again we have seen how police officers pay the ultimate price in losing their lives to protect the public. Whilst we still don't know the full circumstances, this tragic situation demonstrates the uniqueness of the office of constable, a duty not to walk away from danger. It also serves as a reminder of the risks that officers face on a regular basis.
"At the beginning of their tour of duty these two officers would have had no idea what lay ahead of them. I'm sure few words will offer true comfort to the families, colleagues and friends at such a difficult time, but our thoughts and prayers are with them."
Bone and Hughes are the second and third to have died this year after a firearms incident.

I am disturbed about this. Deeply.
There are certain people who are crazed enough to want to kill anyone in a police uniform.
Wether they be men or women, young or old, it is a tragic and terrible event in our society. 
We all need the police and sometimes they face odds that the rest of us do not comprehend.
Justice needs to roll down like a river ......

"….we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force."
