    Editorial: So many questions raised about deadly tragedy in South Florida. FBI needs to answer them. - Daily Journal

    We witnessed a deadly tragedy unfold Thursday afternoon when live television cameras captured a dramatic shootout in Miramar, Fla. — at the height of rush hour — among a swarm of police officers and a pair of armed robbers who had earlier commandeered a United Parcel Service truck and taken its driver hostage after a brazen attempted heist of a Coral Gables, Fla., jewelry store.

    We have since learned that the armed robbers were killed during the exchange of gunfire at the intersection of Miramar Parkway and Flamingo Road, where dozens of motorists were stopped at a traffic light and suddenly thrust into a violent crime scene.

    Sadly, we learned that the 27-year-old UPS driver, Frank Ordonez, and an unidentified motorist who just happened to be stuck in traffic during the shootout were also killed. Ordonez was the father of two young daughters.

    They were surrounded by police
    There was no where for them to go
    The police only had to wait them out
    The criminals would have run out of ammo soon enough
    From what I saw, the criminals open fire first and then every police officer opened up with every thing they had.
