Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 03, 2014

Two stars of the National Geographic Channel reality series Alaska State Troopers were shot and killed Thursday in Tanana, a village 130 miles west of Fairbanks. State troopers Scott Johnson and Gabe Rich were not with a film crew when they died. While investigating a report of someone brandishing a gun, they were shot after an unarmed village public safety officer called for backup involving an altercation over the sale of a $150 couch. Nathanial Lee Kangas, 19, has been arrested in both deaths.

2nd amendment solutions leave much to be desired.

Apparently the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is more than two good guys with guns.

Typical - young patriot being dragged down for standing up to the mukluk booted authorities.

Obviously you are a fan of arming the insane. Free NRA membership for you!

Or do you actually believe killing two cops over a crappy couch is the "normal" thing to do?

Listen, if we didn't have the ability to kill cops over a couch, we'd be living in tyranny.

Just accept that and learn to love the shootings. Senseless killings are the primary indicator of how much freedom we have.

The tree of liberty was watered by some cops today. We should all thank them for their service and sacrifice.

But sometimes I wonder if that tree, maybe we're over-watering it.

When it comes to those who brandish that quote, I wonder if the problem isn't too much fertilizer.

Kangas used his assault rifle quite liberally. Watering the father of the Democratic party's tree.
Good job liberals.

Using the deaths of two peace officers as an opportunity to take a (baseless) swipe at an entire group of people is truly despicable, IMO. Way to reinforce your rep around this place. Sheesh.

LOL,
The assault rifle wasn't used conservatively. It was used quite liberally I would say.
