    And, the courts are saying to let more prisoners on the streets? How about the death penalty to cut down on the prison population?

  2. Stuart says:

    Nice headline you idiots. Why don’t you give the truth? Deputy involved shooting leaves two attempted cop killers injured. This is a perfect example of why the majority of Americans won’t watch the major channels.

  3. Dan says:

    The deputy’s should go for the ten ring next time.

  4. Stan Switek says:

    CBS, why the anti-law-enforcement slant in the headline? This kind of slant is unacceptable.

      The LA Times and KCAL 9/CBS have always been biased and anti-law enforcement, this is nothing new. People just follow like sheep off a cliff. It is sad that there are no restrictions or ethics in journalism these days. Come to think of it, I don’t think those concepts ever existed to these vultures.

    more mexican gang bangers, totally useless, destroying the american dream rapidly.
