A few years ago, two sheriff's deputies and a state trooper were ambushed in Texas. Bad guy was arrested the night before for domestic violence. Bailed out in the morning, went home (in violation of an emergency protective order) and got his guns. Went outside, crossed the street, settled down on a hill and used his cell phone to call in another domestic - then waited.When I read the original report, saying the officers appeared to have been ambushed after responding to a domestic dispute call, I was thinking, "Wow, these people are really brazen, faking a disturbance so they can ambush the cops when they arrive." Well, that was not the circumstances at all. The shooter was the guy who the cops would be dealing with as a result of the call. That is, if I call the cops, complain about my neighbor's dogs barking, then shoot when the cops arrive, that's an ambush. If the neighbor with the barking dogs shoots, it's not. There have been two ambush shootings of cops in the Puget Sound area recently, but this does not appear to be a third. As terrible as this event is, I don't want it added to a "pattern" of ambushes that will certainly result in hysterical calls for more gun control.
