CO DOC executive director shot & killed at home

What the...

Be careful. Not just at work -- that goes without saying. Be careful 24/7. Apparently it is open season on corrections personnel.

RIP. Always be careful. You know copycats are going to be thinking "hmmm..."

Does CO allow its CO's to carry off duty without a permit?

Who does not answer the door with a gun in their hand out of sight? You think I can remember the face of everyone I have arrested over the last 38 years or their relatives or friends or gang members? It is a wonder things like this don't happen more often. Most of the bad guys would love to do something like this, they just don't have the cojones. I have dealt with people who I knew would kill an officer in a heart beat if they got the chance. Let this be a wake up call. Just because you are not in the trenches does not mean you are safe. Directors, Chiefs, Sheriffs, you don't have immunity from attack.

Exactly right. What LEO doesn't consider that the person ringing his door bell might be there for the wrong reason?

RIP, but what a wake up call for officers in condition white at home.

IMO if your a LEO thats not a bad idea...I seldom actually answer the door as in hear a knock and just open it I go to a window first to see who it is if i dont know them I ask why they are here(through the window) if they dont give a good answer they get asked to leave.

We talked about this at our morning meeting. I'd figure most likely it was a former employee than an inmate. Inmates would tend to go after somebody closer to them, like an officer or warden. However, I could be wrong.

That's horrible. If his murder is related to his job (ie. a hit) I hope the police smoke the scumbags butt, like police did with dorner.

If it is related to his employment, I would 100% agree.

The only way I could see someone that high up having a "hit" put out on them, is if he has made some inmate sit in Administrative Seg. and had repeatedly denied allowing him getting out of Ad Seg, or something like that.

Absolutely. If a friend is coming by, they call/text/email and I know they are coming. If I don't know, they are not a friend. As such, I may or may not choose to answer the door based on time of day, who is at home with me, whether I feel like it, what they look like through the window. You can be sure that when I do answer, I will be armed. I always am.

I've had arrestees promise to show up at my door. One said he'd be out of jail in a few hours and at my house for breakfast. I told him that would be the very last thing he would ever do, and I meant it. He didn't show.

In this day and age of Harbor Freight cameras, driveway alert monitors, and his 150 thousand dollar a year high profile job, does not make a lick of sense. His life could have been saved with a few hundred dollars of electronic equipment.

The timing of this weapon ban, signing the bill before his body is even cold, sure is a Alex Jones tin foil hat moment.

A Saudi convict

(about to turn his life around and go to college or something) wanted to finish out his sentence in SA.

State Department even put some pressure on.

Guess who said no?

Interesting theory. Apparently that guy was tied to poor little Al Awlaki that the GNGers claim the US unfairly targetd with an evil drone strike.
