No, this isn't the new left.
This is a horrendous crime and a scrupellous murder attempt.
I hope very much that the 2 police officers survive it.
End of story
I appreciate the simplicity of your statement but I have to ask: doesn't the society that produced those very specific killers (officers in uniform) deserve a look?
What is it saying when someone kills a "uniform"? That is highly different psychology than a spree killer.
As would be the killing of a woman (blinded by the uniform perhaps?)
