Police officer killed by another while being arrested

Discussion in 'Cop Talk' started by WarCry, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. This story is just bad from start to finish. My heart goes out to the families of all involved, but particularly to the arresting officer. That's gone to add a bit of weight to the soul....

    One note: Making this arrest, based on the circumstances given, seems odd that they would have done it while he was on duty. I'd have thought it would be a better idea to do this when he's NOT working, but what do I know?

    There is a thread in GNG regarding this. There are many more questions than answers, at this point.

    Will be interestting to see what else comes out about this, information wise.

    Who knows, on duty might be the best time....If they asked to talk with him in lockup and broke the news there.

    Sad story any way you look at it.

    If his response to being told he was under arrest was to draw and shoot at them he was a *********, good riddance to him.

    He knew what would happen if he drew, I feel for the officer he forced to kill him.
     
  8. Not only did he draw down, but let rounds go.......Suicide by Cop by Cop??????:dunno:

    His response leaves no doubt in my mind that he did what he was accused of.

    Dragoon, the idea of asking him to the jail to make the arrest is genius. Probably the best possible way it could be done.

    Dishonorable enough to have put himself in that position, but to force another to take action disgusts me.

    One of our former officers used to work at Santa Maria until becoming chief somewhere else. I hope the officer recovers fully. As to the piece of **** my he rot in hell.

    The LAPD hooked up one of theirs for a murder she comitted years before by telling her a suspect in custody had info for her in another case and would only meet her in person. When she disarmed and waited for her snitch she got the suprise of a lifetime. Reading about the investigation was an interesting read. A team of detectives were handed a sealed envelope and told to open it up once the were inside the detective's apartment without being told whose house it was or what they were doing there. The envelope contained a search warrant spelling it all out.

  15. You should really have read up on the Rampart scandal and the players involved before you posted this. Gaines was a ****head working for murdering dope dealers, and his tracking down the UC was not an accident.

    That would require research to make a sound, educated statement or opinion.

    What we have here is angry mental ************.




    Edit: Crap. The filter doesn't like the word for self pleasure I guess. And they call US the JBTs ... :rofl:
