FOX News is reporting that another police officer has been killed, this time in San Diego, California. Two police officers have been shot, sadly one has passed away during a traffic stip in San Diego. Which further leads to the obvious, that there is no such thing as a routine police stop.

One San Diego police officer was killed and another one wounded when a driver they stopped Thursday night opened fire on them in the latest in a series of cop shootings around the nation.
The suspected shooter was arrested, and police said they were not pursuing any other suspects. Neither the police officers’ nor the alleged gunman’s names were immediately released.
The determination that the killer acted alone followed a long manhunt in the city’s Southcrest neighborhood involving SWAT teams, helicopters and squad cars.
Video footage showed officers out in force with numerous squad cars with emergency lights flashing lining a street, officers on foot, and a helicopter buzz overhead.
Police said the officers were shot while making a stop and immediately called for help. The officer who died was shot multiple times.
LA Times: 2 San Diego police officers shot, one fatally, in traffic stop; suspect held.
Two San Diego police officers were shot, one of them fatally, during a traffic stop late Thursday night in the Southcrest neighborhood, police said.
The names and tenures of the male officers, both part of the department’s gang suppression unit, were not released.
One of the officers suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at a hospital despite lifesaving efforts, police Chief Shelly Zimmerman said early Friday outside Scripps Mercy Hospital. The second officer underwent surgery early Friday and was expected to survive.
Police had one suspect in custody. He had been shot and was being treated at a hospital, Zimmerman said.
The two officers had pulled over a vehicle about 11 p.m. somewhere in the area of Acacia Grove Way and 36th Street. Immediately after, they called for emergency cover, Zimmerman said.
Other officers were in the area and arrived shortly after. They found both officers suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper torso. One was rushed in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died.
“Despite heroic efforts by officers on scene and heroic efforts by doctors to save his life, I’m heartbroken to report they were unable to save him and he is deceased,” Zimmerman said.
She said she went to the home of the officer who died and notified his wife, two children and extended family members who were at the home.
DISRESPECTFUL: Black Lives Matter Protestors Interrupt DNC Moment Of Silence For Fallen Police Officers (VIDEO)
UNREAL, DEMOCRATS AT DNC DISRESPECT A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR FALLEN POLICE OFFICERS …
No words are required, you only need your eyes and ears to witness the contempt and disrespect of those in the crowd at the DNC for what they think of police officers and the very people that protect and serve us daily. When asked for a moment of silence for fallen police officers the DNC embarrassed themselves and showed just how truly vile they can be. Really, interrupting a moment of silence, what kind of scumbags are you?
Two people interrupted a moment of silence meant to honor slain police officers at Democrats’ convention Thursday, shouting “black lives matter” as the rest of the thousands assembled were quiet
Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, whose city was the scene of the ambush that left five police officers dead and seven wounded earlier this month, asked for the moment of silence.
After things quieted down, a man interrupted with the “black lives matter” shout, and a woman then interjected herself.
What those at the DNC Really Think of the Police
Take a good look at what a respectful moment of silence looks like courtesy of the Republican National Convention from Cleveland Ohio. Is it really that much to ask to shut your trap for 30 seconds and pay respect to those that protect and serve every day the American people and put their lives on the line? The answer is obviously yes, it is asking too much for Democrats.

All Charges Dropped Against Baltimore Officers in Freddie Gray Case … Now Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Being Sued by Police Officers
ALL REMAINING CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST BALTIMORE POLICE OFFICERS AS POLITICAL WITCH HUNT COMES TO AN END …
On Wednesday, the state’s attorney in Baltimore, Maryland did what should have been done at the outset, all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers awaiting trial in the case of the death of Freddie Gray have been dropped. Thus ending the complete failure and political witch hunt by Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby. In the end, Moseby was 0-6 in her rush to judgement to prosecute law enforcement and has nothing but egg on her face. This was a disgraceful prosecution meant to placate the mob and even in admitting complete in utter defeat, Marilyn Mosby still blames the system when she was soundly defeated.
Prosecutors dropped all charges Wednesday against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, bringing to an end one of the highest-profile criminal cases in the city’s history with zero convictions.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby acknowledged the long odds of securing convictions in the remaining cases following the acquittals of three other officers on similar though more serious charges.
In a hearing Wednesday meant to start the trial of Officer Garrett Miller, prosecutors dropped their cases against him, Officer William Porter and Sgt. Alicia White. Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who had acquitted the other officers, was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well.
The state’s attorney here dropped all remaining charges Wednesday against three city police officers awaiting trial in the death of Freddie Gray, closing the book on one of the most closely watched police prosecutions in the nation without a single conviction — and few answers about precisely how the young man died.
The announcement ended a sweeping, deeply polarizing prosecution that began last spring, as National Guard troops rumbled through the streets, with Baltimore under curfew and residents tense after looting and riots that broke out after Mr. Gray sustained a fatal spinal cord injury in police custody.
Wednesday’s extraordinary turn put into sharp relief the wrenching national debate over race and policing, after a month of deadly shootings of black men and deadly retaliations against police officers around the nation. Just a few weeks ago, President Obama pleaded for racial healing after five police officers in Dallas were gunned down by a black Army veteran. The outcome also left the city deeply divided over whether its top prosecutor, Marilyn J. Mosby, 36, had overreached in her initial charges.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray.
On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her.
Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff’s Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who filed charging documents against the officers.
The lawsuits allege false arrest, false imprisonment, defamation or false light, and other assertions. They were filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland in 2015 in late April and early May around the time the officers were arrested.
