From the Palms Springs Desert Sun:
Two officers dead, one injured in Palm Springs shooting; manhunt ongoingThere are always many crazy people in this world. But when the authorities figures of government, politics, media, NGOs, and academia encourage angry young men to feel even more unjustly victimized by cops than they would anyway, bad things can ensue.

… Frances Serrano, who lives directly across the street from where the shooting took place, spoke to the father of the suspected shooter moments before the incident. The father told Serrano that his son, who has mental issues, had a gun and wanted to shoot cops.
“He came over and asked for help,” she said.
Serrano called the police and the father walked back toward his house. Soon after, Serrano heard gunshots.
