Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just seen this on the news:

    US police officers 'shot near air base'

    Four police officers have been shot dead near the McChord Air Force Base in Washington State, US media report.

    A sheriff's department spokesman told KOMO-TV that the officers were shot at the east side of the air force base.

    The officers were ambushed as they were at a coffee shop, according to a report from CNN.

    A sheriff spokesman described the shooting as an ambush. The air force base is in Pierce County, 40 miles south of Seattle.

    RIP prayers for the families
  2. According to Sky News, it was an ambush, not a robbery.

  3. 'Ambushed'? WTF?
  4. Might be, although I wouldn't expect it in a low-profile city really. Could just either be a disgruntled postman, policeman or just some nutjob who decided to test out his firearms.

    Whilst interesting and current, this site is going to go into overload if we 'RIP' everyone that gets killed.

    Can we just keep this as a news item?
  6. Apparently, they were sitting down using laptops when the scumbags(two of them)walked in and brassed them up. It appears the cops were targetted, especially since noone else was shot.

    I would'nt have thought "ordinary" criminals would do this; shooting cops is bad for business... 8O
  7. Terrible and a blight on the normally peaceful Pacific Northwest. Poor guys.
  8. Who gives a fuck? What has this got to do with British Army or MoD current affairs?

    Fuck off to a website where they give a fuck.
  9. 'Current Affairs, News and analysis' - it's news isn't it? Might turn out to be another islamist lunatic in a land of mega tight security?
  10. Where does it say British Army and MoD Current Affairs?
  11. One more time for the hard of thinking: if it is terrorism rather than crime, it potentially has a great deal to do with Current Affairs. The Mumbai attacks were just over a year ago, and it's only a matter of time before the bad guys try it in the West.

    Alternatively, you could always fcuk off to a site where the give a sh1t about your opinion. :wink:
