HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Four people now face charges in connection with the killing of two police officers in Mississippi.

A vigil will be held this afternoon for two Mississippi police officers killed during a traffic stop over the weekend.

Curtis banks wailed as deputies hauled him out of a patrol car and into a police station.

Prosecutors charged him as an accessory after the fact to two capital murders.

Officials say his brother is one of two people who shot and killed a pair of police officers during a traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Mississippi on Saturday. The police cruiser was then used as a getaway car.

Marvin Banks and Joanie Calloway face capital murder charges, while a fourth suspect, Cornelius Clark, has been charged with obstruction of justice.

    So tired of hear all the anti-law enforcement dribble that seems to flood social media!

    The treatment police officers get from liberals in this country is sickening. As if anyone would want to stay on the force after the hatchet job the liberal media, Obama, Holder, and Sharpton do to them!

    Can we move on and stop wasting our energy on this anti-police drama? While the media focuses on this non-sense, police are dying and the US economy is burning. Many of our citizens have had their jobs taken away along with their health insurance. The middle class is shrinking and its not getting any better.

    Obama has destroyed our economy. Everyone is under-employed and can’t afford to live. We must now purchase health insurance we cannot afford and do not want or need (mine is $450/month… contrast this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda… or my $12/month renters insurance from Eagle… both private-enterprise!)

    When we elected President Obama, weren’t we promised “hope and change”?

    RIP to these incredible men. Officer Deen was the 2014 Office of the Year and Officer Tate had just joined the force. Hero’s seldom know their sacrifice or how we will react to it. These men gave their lives to protect their community. My thoughts and prayers are with their families today.

    Prayers to these Mississippi officers. Respect the police, America!
