I was hearing this morning
Sorry I was watching Al Jazeera America
HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Two Mississippi police officers were shot to death during an evening traffic stop turned violent, a state law enforcement spokesman said Sunday. Three suspects were in custody, including two who are charged with capital murder.
The deaths of the officers are the first to hit the southern Mississippi city of Hattiesburg in three decades — and come amid a national debate on policing, race and the use of deadly force, following the recent killings of unarmed black men by police in Missouri, South Carolina and elsewhere.
The officers' deaths also follow by a day the funeral of a New York City officer who was shot in the head while stopping a man suspected of carrying a handgun.
Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant released a statement saying he was "mourning" the loss of the officers.
"This should remind us to thank all law enforcement for their unwavering service to protect and serve. May God keep them all in the hollow
"Liquori Tate, 25, a newcomer to the force who Strain said was a 2014 graduate of the law enforcement academy.
Tate grew up in a tough part of Starkville, 150 miles north of Hattiesburg, and decided to become a police officer so he could make a difference in the black community, said Jarvis Thompson, who knew him from childhood in church."
"He wanted to become an officer because we've seen so much of our peers get killed or end up in jail," said Thompson, 24, of Starkville. "He was talking all the time about how he wanted to do better and make the place better."
