  • Help Locating an Old Shooting Case

    I was on facyspace the other day and I ran across a posting regarding two deputies that were shot and killed in their cruiser while they were giving an old guy a ride home. Seems he had a long history of run-ins with Law Enforcement as well. Then I saw the shooting that just happened in the cruiser in Colorado, and as I was sending an email to my guys about that one and why we need to do good searches, I remembered the old case. I have searched everywhere I can think of, and can't find any information. Can anyone help.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

        Another one that was the result of trusting the wrong guy and no, or poor search..

          Thank you ateamer and ChiTownDet. Both of those are also going to be good examples, but the one I am trying to find is like from the 50's or 60's. They were just giving a guy they found on the side of the road a ride back to his house, or something similar. He had a weapon on him and used it.

            The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has a searchable database of line-of-duty deaths dating back to 1791.

              I still cite that case as a great example of "normal" acting people going off.

              When I was a kid in Miami, my car broke down and a Metro-Dade (now Miami-Dade) officer offered to give me a ride home. When I reached for the front door handle, he said something to the effect of "only my mom rides in front- everyone else rides in the back".

                You never know when someone is going to "flip". An older person may seem harmless, but at the same time, they may have reached the point where they just don't care about what happens to them anymore.

                  Don't want to get fully searched? Then feel free to hike your *** home, we ain't a taxi service.

                  Did you ever notice that incorrectly is only spelled correctly when it's spelled incorrectly?

                    Just because someone is old doesn't mean he's not a criminal.
