Another Cop Shot And Killed

On a day when the NYPD buried on of their own, a police officer in flagstaff AZ. was shot and killed.
From the Arizona  Daily Sun:
A Flagstaff police officer has been killed in the line of duty.
Ofc. Tyler Jacob Stewart, 24, was pronounced dead at Flagstaff Medical Center Saturday afternoon after being shot in the Plaza Vieja neighborhood in a confrontation with a domestic violence suspect.
The shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. in the 800 block of West Clay Avenue. Sgt. Margaret Bentzen of the Flagstaff Police Department said Stewart was attempting to contact a person of interest in a domestic violence incident that was reported earlier in the day. The officer and the suspect exchanged gunfire.
The officer was shot in the face and was taken to the hospital. He died a short time later.
The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, Bentzen said.
More from the Officer Down Memorial Page:
According to the ODMP, police officer shooting deaths are up 57% from last year.
People are not afraid of taking on the cops and disrespecting them.  And it starts at the top with President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder along with many liberal mayors of big cities - they thoroughly dislike police officers and thugs see this and they are willing to have a shootout with them.
And now, another town will be burying a fallen police officer.
