To me there been an amazing lack of US news coverage over the killings of three Canadian cops and the wounding of two others by a gunman that the last I hear is still on the loose.

We share a long border and to a great degree similar to the same culture and yet this is hardly news in the US where if it had happen anywhere in the US it would had been front page news.

@BillRM,

@BillRM,
I live pretty far from the border and have been traveling most of the week and I heard about it so it's not like it hasn't received any coverage.

I checked this morning the streaming CBS all news radio station in the Detroit area and did not hear anything of the killings only the GM self investigation of the switch problems.

Seem damn strange that I needed to taped into Canadian news sources over the internet to get this story in any details.

Damn little I been listening to the broadcast news in the Miami area and there was only one few seconds comment all day long and my wife who at the moment is in Detroit area had not hear anything about it as of this afternoon.

Behind such local news as kittens being rescue from a car engine.

MONCTON, N.B. - The RCMP continued to look for a heavily armed gunman nearly a full day after their manhunt began for the suspect alleged to have shot three Mounties dead and injured two others in Moncton, N.B.
The Mounties say the suspect was spotted early today but police were unable to apprehend him after he went into a wooded area.
Cpl. Chantal Farrah says one of the wounded officers remains in hospital while the other has been released.

Police are searching for Justin Bourque, a 24-year-old Moncton man who was wearing military camouflage and carrying two rifles in a picture of him released by police on Twitter on Wednesday night.
Officers urged people with any information on his whereabouts to call 911.
The manhunt began Wednesday at around 7:30 p.m. when police responded to a call about a man walking along a road with what was believed to be a gun.
The RCMP says after the call, shots were fired and officers called for backup.
The Mounties have not released the identities of the officers who were shot.
