Metro Cops Ambushed

From the LVRJ:
A Las Vegas police officer thought a vehicle had hit his patrol car Sunday afternoon, but it was a man firing a shot shooting at him with a semiautomatic handgun.
Glass shattered as the shooter fired two more rounds and the officer and his partner, who was in the car with him, "quickly realized" they were being attacked, Metro Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said.
One officer was struck by a round in the right hand and was expected to recover. He was being treated at University Medical Center, where McMahill spoke with reporters. The wound was not considered life-threatening.
It was the second time a Metro officer had been shot in three days. Officer Jeremy Robertson, 37, was shot in his upper right leg about 3:45 a.m. Friday while investigating a prowler call. He had surgery and is expected to recover.
A total of four Las Vegas cops have been shot in the past two months. Since Friday, Metro has had two officers riding in each car on patrol. It's a common maneuver after police are the targets of violence.
Just more evidence that police are under attack with greater frequency.  Yes, shooting deaths are down but that is by luck and great hospital care.
Too bad the cops didn't shoot the thug.
And for a 10 second action, this thug will probably get 25 years to life.
What a moron.
