когда наших полицейских научат правильно работать с людьми, у которых в руках оружие?

какой-то олень умудрился застрелить двух профессионально (или не очень) подготовленных полицейских

это как в тернополе три месяца назад - обычные прохиндеи воровали батареи - за ними погнались полицейские - так они полицейских покалечили, ранили и оружие забрали

Шкода усіх загиблих (дарма, що ментів як не любив, так й досі їм не довіряю). Але, якби два роки тому одне конкретне падло почало би турбуватися за людей та країну, а не виключно за свое власне збагачення, то і цих й багатьох інших смертей можна було б уникнути...
