I wish these men would just kill themselves & stop taking as well the lives of their wives, children & others.

This is why police hate responding to domestic disputes. They go--but they go knowing there is a considerable risk that they will be hurt or killed, sometimes by the perpetrator but sometimes by the victim. They go, even if they've been to the same house over and over. They go on the slim chance that they might be able to help someone.

I hope that the man that shot the trooper suffered,before he died from his wound.

These officers put their lives on the line..every time they go out there..

Very sad another one was killed in the line of duty..and any other loss of life due to the scuzzy criminals out there without any regard for the law or for life..

Another sad,mournful story.I still miss my friend and confidant officer Douglas.He was shot and killed on duty in 1979.He answered to a call for bank robbery in Pensacola Fl.
