More Police Shot, Killed

The latest outrage is the ambush-style shooting of several police and deputy sheriffs in Baton Rouge, LA. So far three are dead, another three (?) wounded. One gunman is dead, another two "persons of interest" have been taken into custody. See the story on the website of the local ABC-TV affiliate WBRZ.

Am I the only one who thinks it's time to make the death penalty mandatory for murderers of LEOs? I understand police make little effort to take cop killers alive, but some are arrested and should not enjoy the privilege of life they denied a now-dead officer.

Later ... As has been typical in recent attacks on police, it now appears this was a lone shooter crime. The other "persons of interest" have seemingly proven to be uninteresting after a closer look.
