There is a nationwide manhunt for John Williams after he allegedly murdered Somerset County Corporal Eugene Cole.

Norridgewock, Maine - A nationwide manhunt is underway for a killer who murdered a Somerset County deputy overnight and stole his patrol car.

Early Wednesday morning, a suspect fatally shot Somerset County Corporal Eugene Cole and stole his patrol car, according to WCSH.

The suspect was identified as 29-year-old John Williams of Madison.

After stealing the police car, the suspect drove to Cumberland Farms on Waterville Road in Norridgewock at around 1:45 a.m., according to WCSH.

He then robbed the Cumberland Farms and fled the area on foot.

Do NOT take this POS into custody. Turn him into a human sprinkler.

The MSM will spend days talking about some criminal being shot by a police officer or a Starbucks customer being arrested for trespassing but this type of story NEVER seems to get the attention it deserves. I HATE the fucking media and everything they stand for. There is no truth in journalism, just an agenda they want to push for those incapable of thinking for themselves.
