Two New York City policemen were shot dead ambush style in their patrol car.

The initial evidence is that it was a revenge killing, but caution that in such events initial evidence can be wrong.

As we reported, a coalition of student groups at Harvard Law School demanded exam delays due to student trauma over the Ferguson and Eric Garner grand jury refusals to indict.

There was withering criticism, including here. HLS refused to budge, but did agree to counseling, meetings, and other steps.

Yes, I agree that #BlackLivesMatter. So do all other lives, including the lives of police (of all races) who keep us from the abyss.

Remember Officer David Smith never lived to tell about enraged perp who stole his service gun.
