UPDATE: Gallows Bait

There can be only only one sentence for this man that can be called justice.
A rookie Jersey City cop was ambushed and executed by a murder suspect who moments earlier boasted, “Watch the TV news later — I’m going to be famous,” authorities said Sunday.

Officer Melvin Santiago, 23, was fatally shot in the head as he and other cops responded to a report of an armed robbery at a 24-hour Walgreens drugstore shortly after 4 a.m.
Santiago, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was just getting out of the passenger seat of his patrol car when fugitive Lawrence Campbell came up and opened fire twice through the open door with a semiautomatic 9mm pistol, officials said.

[...]Campbell had been on the lam since a slaying last week involving two other accomplices.
Officer Santiago only graduated from the police academy last December. He always wanted to be a police officer - just like his uncle, a retired Jersey City detective.

More here.

Lawrence "Watch the TV" Campbell died from his wounds after killing Officer Santiago. His widow, Angelique Campbell, graciously deigned to share her feelings regarding these events.

The NY Post reports:
The widow of the thug who executed a Jersey City cop over the weekend said Monday that her husband should have killed even more officers — as her neighbors set up a sickening memorial to her fame-seeking spouse.  
“He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” Angelique Campbell said of husband Lawrence, who killed rookie Officer Melvin Santiago in an ambush early Sunday, before being killed by police.

“Sorry for the officer’s family. That’s, you know, whatever. But, at the end of the day, [Lawrence] got a family, too. All they care about is the officer,” Campbell added in an interview with News 12 New Jersey.
So much for her condolences - "whatever" - to the family of the officer her husbanded murdered. Later she emitted a half-assed apology for her spiteful, hate riddled rant stating that she was very angry. Whatever.

Then a miracle happened: a half-assed ghetto memorial sprung into being to commemorate the passing of POS cop killer Lawrence Campbell.

Festooned with empty liquor bottles, rat feces, deflated balloons, dollar store candles, scrawled t-shirts (“REAL N—-Z DONT DIE,” “Forever a ‘G’ ” and “SEE U ON THE OTHER SIDE.” among the offerings), a little hand lotion, a few used condoms, and some spilled Tidy Bowl, this memorial pretty much captures the essence of Campbell's existence on this earthly plane.

We can pretty well rest assured that Lawrence is not resting in peace.

And some people have problems about law enforcement officers pulling their side arms too quickly anymore.
Judgement calls in the field are more convoluted now as ever before.

LEOs can read reports and news articles just like the rest of us.

Prayers for the family of Officer Santiago.
