Ok, I looked through the diaries and did not see anything about this.  Today, 2 officers were killed and 2 wounded in a shot out in West Memphis Ark.  This is about 40 miles from my home.  And it is heart breaking.  I just watched the footage online.

2 two suspects where killed in a Wal-Mart parking lot, 90 minutes after the shooting of the first 2 officers.  One of the officers was the son of West Memphis' police chief.  This is just so sad.

But now it is kind of scary, the vehicle of the suspects was registered to the House of God's Prayer in New Vienna, Ohio.  I have read a few news articles on the web in the past hour.  They say this "chruch" has had problems in the past... white supremacy ties.

So, now I am scared and concerned, because a few months ago the militia groups said they were going to kill police, then cause more problems at the funerals.  Memphis can not handle any more tension, heck, the country can not handle any more tension.

I know this is not much of a diary, I am not good at even writing comments, but I want to share this information.  And hopefully, someone can "talk me down" or tell me that local law enforcement know what to watch for in the next few days.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
