That is about #7 or #8 in the last 2 weeks on our officers! Automatic Death Penalty for murder and attempted murder for these criminals. This NEEDS to stop !

Getting tired of all the shooting of Officers. There IS a war on them even though most deny it. My thoughts and prayers go to ALL people who wear a badge, shield or whatever you want to call it. I have worn one for the past 20 years between Sheriff's office and now DHS.

President Trump by Executive Order should declare murdering a police officer an act of terrorism and make it a capital offense with penalty of death upon conviction.

Welfare checks often have dire circumstances; this is a good example. Best wishes to the Trooper.

The dead gunman was identified as Delos Lowe, 68. A friend, Allen Potter, said Lowe suffered from mental illness for decades and had stopped taking his medication.

No word yet on how this person was able to obtain a firearm. Hopefully updates on that.
