Well, then lets ban assault knives, assault hammers, assault forks, assault butter knives, assault ropes, assault cars, ...you get the picture.

Why does the city need an Audi A6 with tinted windows?  How many other $60,000 luxury cars does the city have?  From where was it stolen?  So many great questions to ask here...

This wasn't a random murder, it was an assassination. How often do you hear of an eyewitness being spared?

Wow, I hope people say you probably deserved to get brutally murdered in front of your own home one day too. How nice.

An assault rifle? Really? Did the witness say what type it was....since most have no clue what they are talking about when they say assault rifle?

Is there some special reason that a damned government car doesn't have gps locator on it? The damn government can't even keep track of their cars now? Hell the dude prolly got the rifle from the stolen car.

Hmm...A drone would have been no help. But getting the cops onto the streets instead of sitting in the precincts might.

I hope the cops enforce those sagging pants cause we don't want people getting their pants dirty in the pools of blood from all those homicides around.
