Topic: 4 RCMP officers were killed on Thursday...

I thought I'd let everybody know that a couple days ago 4 RCMP officers were killed. I'm not exactly sure on everything that went on, obviously the RCMP will be doing an investigation to get all the circumstances. But I thought everyone should know about it.


One of the news channels over here said it was the most RCMP killed since 1885 (most killed in a day). Even though I'm sure the families of the RCMP are not on here, I'd like to extend my condolences to them, the family of the shooter as well. I have always wanted to be a cop, which is slightly different from the RCMP and I feel horrible about what happened. They were all so young .

That was pretty tragic. It's worth noting that the refrence to 1885 refers to the Metis Rebellions; at which time the mounties were much more paramilitary then they are now.

This is the kind of thing that really reminds people that thing slike this can happen outside of the US, and we need to be prepared for it.
