    Damn......
    I was thinking how ridiculous and self entitled that would be and then remembered there is a bunch of folks labeled as “Incels” that have already killed a bunch.

    Talk to whatever CIT or Peer Counseling program you have in place. Seriously. Don't try and transfer any blame into yourself.

    Also, as a friend of mine who was working the CIT program at my former agency once told me, after one of our folks went that way, for every individual cop who chooses that route, there's possibly another couple of them who are thinking about it and might be finally influenced by the suicide. (My friend earned his PhD shortly after his retirement and started a consulting business for LE agencies as a psychologist, and worked with persons in crisis the last several years before he retired.)

    Folks who get fired and those in the middle of a divorce can be dangerous.

    Duh. Virtually anybody in the midst of an unpleasant episode in their lives can "be dangerous". It's the real world. ;)

    FWIW, this incident (in OP's post) is just one of many things that makes legislators look at crafting legislation to create GVRO's, Red Flag laws or whatever you want to call them.

    Just off the top of my head I can think of 9 police officers I worked with who killed themselves(1 was a female). Some of them you could see it was just a matter of time where as the others no signs seen. Then there were other officers I did not work with or personally know who killed themselves. I have no idea if intervention would have stopped them since people intent on ending their lives eventually succeed. I have no answers when it comes to suicide.

    Weird, I've read online for years that cops don't prevent anything, just take reports after stuff happens. :dunno:

    Thing is though, so many of the incidents were never preceded with hints or clues.

    It's the incidents that were that understandably get the attention, though.

    I do mainly contract work, so I try not to take it personally when my gig is done. It's just business.
