And those who use drugs tell you drugs never hurt anyone. Now society has to pay to incarcerate this guy as well as all the mediacal bills.

Stricter gun laws isn't going to stop these events. The greed involved alone plus the use really warps the human mind. The risk for injury/death is even greater when this stuff goes on in a crowded neighborhood.If the gov't does anything worthwhile about this is go into the internet and remove all the recipes for meth and other drugs and when somebody looks for it, it would trigger an alert to the police to do some surveillance and possible action.

The world is getting more crazy with each passing day. Hope the injured recover fully. Thanks for your service in protecting us.

tragic event indeed.

tactical strategy might have been too wait for the perps to exit the house, stop the vehicle, detain and then do a search of the premises.

agreed, lawmakers who restrict guns for healthy, rational and sane people simply cannot account for the criminals who WILL steal, share and make their own weapons. after all, they don't follow the laws anyhow!

illicit drugs and their manufacture/use are like a gaping wound in our society, it is bleeding us to death. no band aid will remedy it, we need a cauterizing iron to seal it shut. let the perps be scarred for life, rather than society.

@JohnJacob...

The drugs themselves didn't cause any of this harm. The people involved in the incident did the harm. The article doesn't say what the guy was selling exactly so it's hard to say how dangerous the drugs could potentially be, but I do feel that many drug laws are overly harsh. If those laws were changed, many of these situations could be avoided.

It is truly a tragedy that so many people were injured in this incident. It is surprising that 6 officers were injured with only a single suspect. I guess they weren't ready for a violent response.

Also, it seems rather unwise for someone to go running outside to see a gunfight. They also ran back outside a second time after being told to go back inside once already. With people like that, it's surprising that no one else was injured in this.

The silver lining in this is that no one was killed.

On WTIC 1080 radio news here in CT, they are saying that one of the six police officers has died. Condolences to his/her family and prayers for the rest of the injured officers. What is happening in Ogden UT? I often read of problems in that Utah city.

Those drugs didn't hurt anyone. The police came in violently and received violence. Drugs didn't cause this violence. Prohibition did.

I'm not reading anything about WHO this person is that they were serving a warrant on. I wonder why? Anyone else hear or read anything?

Meanwhile, in Utah ANYONE with the money can go to a gun show and purchase any kind of firearms imaginable without submitting to any kind of background check.

Where is the "Well Regulated Militia" required by the Second Amendment?

According to the news all of the officers were wearing vests. Tells me he has some type of assault rifle and bullets capable of piercing vests. I am not anti-gun. Just wonder where we draw the line on what type of weapons people can lawfully own. Tragic.

Midvaliean | 6:55 a.m. Jan. 5, 2012 MIDVALE, UT you sound like a cop hatter, nowhere did it say they went in violently. The person of interest is criminal drugs or no drugs. We have laws that must be enforced or we well end up a divided country and well be ruled by war lords. Is this what you want? Until laws are change they must be enforced, if you don't like a law form a group of people to change the law through peaceful means. We cannot and should not ignore the law because we don't like it.

@sfcretdennis
With 6 people shot it went violently. When you enter someones house by breaking the door down, which is what happened, that is violence.

I have to wonder at someone who hears gunshots and goes outside to see. *scratches head* ya.

Prayers of comfort go out to the officer's family and friends.

"Drugs didn't cause this violence. Prohibition did."

Drugs destroy lives as evidenced by the young woman sitting in a Nevada jail on kidnapping charges. One of the police officers paid with his life to help rid decent society of this den of thieves. This is the wrong time and this is the wrong story to use as a platform to denigrate the men decent society respect and support.

It is the exact time to say how stupid this war is. More deaths. Don't blame the criminal actions committed by the lady locked up in Nevada on Drugs, drugs don't make people do things. People make choices to do things. People make bad choices.
People destroy their own lives and sometimes use drugs as an avenue to do so.
