    A warrant was being served. It figures. The other times I hear of gunfights like this, it usually follows the serving of a warrants. Makes me wonder why they don't check for weapons on site first...?

    Awaiting more details. And praying for all involved.

    Apparently injuries to the police officers were not life threatening.

    CBS Philadelphia has a good live stream of the location.

    Well yes, “thoughts and prayers” seem to be the only response to the endemic gun violence in the US.

    Criticizing "thoughts and prayers" seems to be the new mantra of the gun grabbers.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    "Thoughts and prayers" is a natural reaction expressing empathy for the victims of something like this. Objecting to "thoughts and prayers" is tantamount to objecting to expressions of empathy after a tragedy.

    They haven't figured that out yet. It's kinda like the disparaging comments by Obama about "clinging on to their guns and religion".
