Terrible. He appeared to be targeted for a specific reason but it is way too early to tell what exactly happened.

Hopefully the shooters are caught.

I hope they catch those b****rds quickly and that they fry.

Will pray for the officer's family and co-workers.

How awful. My heart goes out to the family and friends of this deputy. Sad, sad news.

Like the previous posters, I hope they catch whoever did this, put them in jail and throw away the key.

Is it still a capital offense in Texas to kill a peace officer?

It is - and whoever it is that did this had best be in a deep hole by now, because you can bet that every agency around is looking for them!

Are you saying that they devote more time and effort into catching someone who killed a cop rather than a regular old Joe? Let's revisit the trust poll.

Look.....it's perspective. When someone intentionally targets a LEO, they NEED to be found and taken off the street - otherwise, it becomes worse. That's a long-standing message that's been understood since the days of the old west - and if you have a problem with that, then you need to ask yourself why someone intentionally targeting those charged with the task of protecting us would do such a thing - and what will they do next.

I am with sapphire on this one.

Anyone (LEO or not) that is a victim of this terrible crime deserves the same amount of time and effort to capture the idiots.

It isn't the old west anymore. Crooks didn't even have semi-automatic guns then. Why does anyone need a semi-automatic weapon? The fact they exist just gives others a reason to buy them to protect themselves from wrong people owning the same type of weapon.

Bottom line: this horrible murder was committed using semi-automatic weapons. The poor guy might have had a chance to react and defend himself if they were shooting with less aggressive weapons.

Less aggressive weapons? What the heck does that even mean? And why is semi-auto (one-trigger-pull-equals-one-bullet) even worthy of mentioning in a news article?
