In custody? Too bad he didn’t end up at “room temperature”. Now society will have to pay for him to “exist” in jail by paying for his room and board and meals. Sometimes it’s just better to not “exist” anymore. You can’t help people like this. “Mental health” is beyond the issue already. He’s waaaaaay past help, reentering into society, or counseling. Anyone who commits such a crime, and yes he did commit the crime, shouldn’t have the privilege of being around others ever again. Overall good job officers for getting the guy.

The same leftist politicians who are thanking first responders today will be calling for police to be neutered tomorrow.
