here is the "yes,l agree that the sun rises in the east" disclaimer: no one should have to be shooting cops, cops shouldn't have to be shooting others (but there is a lot more to cops using deadly force)
But the way that @CBSNews @CBS8 & @nbcsandiego are covering the #ComptonShooting of LASD deputies lays bare broadcast #journalism's dependence on quick, easy content from reliable sources at the expense giving viewers a fuller context.
Context to why someone is this volatile world would shoot an LASD deputy could be explained by the suspicious death of #AndresGuardado

Moments ago, 2 of our Sheriff Deputies were shot in Compton and were transported to a local hospital. They are both still fighting for their lives, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We will update this thread with information as it becomes available.
Update: One male deputy and one female deputy were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle. Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. They are both currently undergoing surgery. The suspect is still at large.
Update: The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation.

It was an honor to spend this afternoon with Mr. James “Buddy” Fowler. He began his career with #LASD in 1973 as a photographer. Buddy was assigned to Scientific Services Bureau, where he photographed Department events, personnel and major incidents. ImageImage
During his career Buddy also processed photos from crime scenes and made photo exhibits for court cases. He was Sheriff Peter J. Pitches photographer and served our country in the Air Force. I was humbled to share our service time stories. ImageImageImageImage
Buddy Fowler retired from LASD in 2006, serving longer than any other Sheriff’s Photographer and taking over 250,000 photos throughout his career. Thank you for your devoted time at our Department and thank you for capturing a photograph with me today! #blackhistorymonth ImageImageImage

This morning’s media open house highlighted the strides we have made as a department and the obstacles we have overcome. To recap, I’d like to point out the #LASD’S achievements this year. 1st, violent crimes across @CountyofLA are down 15.15%. #SheriffV Image
2nd ICE transfers are down 53%, keeping true to my campaign promise that I would remove the ICE agents from our facilities. Jail violence has also decreased, despite the rise in in our inmate population. Image
3rd recruitment is up, a total 65% increase over the previous 4 year average. As Captain McBride stated, we achieved this by changing our culture. We seek qualified candidates but no longer treat them like criminals; a practice which previously dissuaded most from applying. Image

Yesterday I took a short trip to Catalina Island to visit with @AvalonLASD. The scenery all around was beautiful, but more importantly I was able to get a first-hand understanding of how we are ensuring public safety for the residents & tourists on the island. #SheriffV ImageImageImageImage
A quick trip around Two Harbors, or "The Isthmus", afforded me the opportunity to see the area we protect and agencies we partner with on the island. #SheriffV ImageImageImageImage
Captain Hocking and deputies from @AvalonLASD provided a station tour and shared their experiences and efforts to continue building strong relationships with the community. #SheriffV ImageImageImageImage
