Neighbors of the couple who ambushed two police officers Sunday in Las Vegas told local newspapers the pair had bragged about spending time at Cliven Bundy’s ranch during the standoff with the federal government earlier this year.
The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”
You know the drill: the shooters were obviously liberal, this was a false flag operation.
Remember back in the day when we were saying that open carrying to political rallies and talking about armed insurrection might lead to this sort of thing and Megan McArdle et al. were telling us that it was all a healthy exercise in freedom?
