Officer, LT Eric Shuhandler, losing his life. The incident was bad enough, but to make things worse the local Conservative talk radio station KFYI has turned this issue political. It is no surprise that they would not wait a second to do so, since today Phoenix is cutting 500 police and firefighter jobs in order to deal with budget constraints. In the same breath they will not even discuss raising taxes. What is the matter with them? They would like to take from the poor, either directly or indirectly by cutting social services, than pay just a penny more on sales taxes (which is regressive for rich people too since they buy less in percentage of their income than poorer people, due to the fact that they can save and poorer people spend most every cent they make). It shows how most Americans do not want to sacrifice at all.
