    Convenient that they had a picture of him, isnt it? Just gotta wonder what if any prior history of 'interaction' with LEO's this guy had. Not a 'dog whistle'...just that there are sooo many pictures of these guys that die by gunfire, pictures that are probably NOT from getting their drivers license...

    I thought the bad guys were going to give up their guns with gun control coming.

    Guess not.
