*IN THE LINE OF DUTY* OFFICER DOWN
(01-08-2018, 01:17 PM)Love Child Wrote: 34 Year old Deputy Daniel McCartney was shot late last night and has died. He was responding to a home invasion. Schools in the area were closed as one suspect was still being searched for. He leaves behind a wife and 3 children.

Very sad story, Love Child.

^ Deputy Daniel A. McCartney. Rest in peace.

Dispatchers could hear screaming and scuffling on the 911 call, police said.

McCartney rushed to respond to the home on a wooded street in Frederickson, about 15 miles southeast of Tacoma.

One of the home invasion suspects, a white male, was shot dead by police as he tried to escape the scene. The other, a black male, escaped on foot and is reportedly still on the loose. I hope they catch him soon.

My mom lives near here, this is the area I grew up. I always hate hearing about incidents near there, I worry about her safety and sometimes her sanity-she has been known to confront people, which makes me laugh but also concerns me.
This is a very tragic story indeed. It makes me sad, only 34 years old. It is terrible.

Good news; LE has arrested the suspect that got away on foot.

Police didn't even realize he was the second armed invader and initially arrested his sorry ass near the scene on an unrelated drug crime warrant. His name is Frank Pawul, 32 (pictured below).

[Image: Frank%20Pawul_1515460151442.png_10426738...40_360.jpg]

It's pretty easy to see why police didn't put two and two together initially, considering they were on the lookout for a black male.

The other suspect, Henry Michael Carden, 35, was found dead at the shooting scene. The Medical Examiner confirmed his identity Monday night.

How did they get the 2 descriptions so fucked up? I don't understand. I guess I will have to read the article.
I guess people in the area were all saying "Lock your doors" fucking-everyone locks there doors down there, even during the day when they are home.

Well,
Except for Soobie Yoo of course!

Soobie Yoo, a 32-year-old who lives less than two blocks from the scene, woke up when she saw flashing lights outside her window.

She never heard the shots and said she was surprised when she finally learned what happened.

“It’s a pretty safe neighborhood,” Yoo said, pointing out that she left her garage door open while walking to the scene. “... There are a lot of kids in the area.”

I haven't seen an explanation as to why the suspect description was so far off yet.

But Pawul's attorney is using the mismatch to his advantage. He claimed in court that it's evidence that police may have the wrong dude.

Also, a third person was arrested. She is a 52-year-old woman who drove the two armed home-invaders to the crime scene and reportedly knew what they were planning to do. She hasn't been publicly identified yet, as far as I know.

All Three Suspects in the Washington Deputy Murder Now Identified

These are the two suspects who invaded a residence at gun point, to which Deputy Daniel McCartney responded and was killed in the line of duty. It appears to have been drug-related.

[Image: suspects.jpeg?quality=85&strip=all&w=300&strip=all]
Pawul is in custody and, I suspect, will never spend another day outside of incarceration. Carden, it turns out, was not shot by police during their pursuit of him. He instead chose to blow his own brains out.

[Image: 768x768.jpg]
^ Brenda Troyer assisted Pawul and Carden; she allegedly knew their plan and drove them to the scene. She is also in police custody. Troyer was supposed to be the getaway driver, but left when she heard police sirens, investigators said.

Pawul was charged today with murder, kidnapping and unlawful possession of a firearm in the death of Deputy Daniel McCartney. Pawul’s bail was set at $5 million.

Troyer was also was charged with murder and kidnapping. Her bail was set at $2 million. It won't surprise me if investigators eventually lower the charges against her in turn for her cooperation and testimony against Pawul.

Follow-Up to Post #300 - California

This fuckhole, Luis Bracamontes, 37, admitted to killing Sacramento-area officers Danny Oliver and Michael Davis Jr. in October 2014.

[Image: 48358CCF00000578-5281807-image-a-22_1516238000623.jpg]

During his trial on Tuesday, he was smiling and laughing and told the court, 'I wish I could have killed more of those motherfuckers, I will break out soon, and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me.'

These outbursts caused Judge Steve White to send the jury out of the courtroom. The judge ruled that the trial will continue, despite Bracamontes' defense attorney's attempts to have him ruled incompetent to stand trial.

Bracamontes is in the United States illegally and had been arrested and deported multiple times prior to his murderous rampage in October 2014.

Richardson, Texas
[Image: police-officer-david-sherrard.jpg]
^ Police Officer David Sherrard was shot and killed while responding to a disturbance at an apartment complex at 4250 East Renner Road.

As officers arrived on scene they located a man, Rene Gamez, suffering from a gunshot wound outside of the apartment. Gamez later died. The officers were able to identify an apartment where the suspect was located.

As they made entry into the apartment the man opened fire, striking Officer Sherrard in the neck. Officer Sherrard was transported to Medical City Plano where he succumbed to his wound.

[Image: 1518130776-mccall.JPG?auto=format&q=40&or=0&w=350]
The suspect, Brandon McCall, 26 ^, barricaded himself inside of the apartment for several hours before surrendering. He is charged with capital murder of a police officer. He is not charged with his friend Gamez's death (not clear as to why not).

Officer Sherrard had served with the Richardson Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters. Rest in Peace.

Two police officers in a city near Columbus, Ohio, were shot and killed Saturday while responding to a 911 hangup call involving potential domestic abuse, the authorities said.

[Image: 11XP-SHOOTING-master768.jpg]
^ Officers Eric Joering, 39, and Anthony Morelli, 54, had responded at 12:10 p.m., eight minutes after the 911 call, about a “potential domestic situation.”

“As they went into the apartment they were immediately met with gunfire, and both officers were shot,” Chief Morbitzer said at a news conference on Saturday afternoon. He paused several times to choke back tears.

Officer Joering, a 16-year veteran of the department, died at the scene. Officer Morelli, a 29-year veteran, was transported to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus in critical condition and later died. Officer Joering had a wife and four daughters, and Officer Morelli had a wife and two children. Rest in peace.

[Image: 180211210452-quentin-lamar-smith-medium-plus-169.jpg]
^ The suspect, 30-year-old Quentin Smith, was shot and wounded by the officers and taken to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in critical condition Saturday, a Westerville city spokeswoman said. The hospital would not provide updates on his condition Sunday.

Police had been called to the home more than once before Saturday's fatal visit.

Mobile Police Officer Justin Billa was gunned down on Tuesday night when murder suspect Robert Hollie, 72, opened fire on authorities after barricading himself in his home. He leaves behind a wife and a one-year-old son.

Billa, who had been on the force for two years and was once named police officer of the month, later succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Hollie, who was wanted for murdering his ex-wife, was found dead inside his home two hours after the standoff began. It is not yet clear if Hollie died when one of the officers returned fire or if he took his own life.

In July 2017, Officer Billa was interviewed by WALA-TV for a segment on the police force's relationship with community members.

He spoke about his intentions as a police officer and goals for the force as a whole. 'We need to go back to helping people instead of just taking them to jail and creating bigger problems,' he said. That's my ideal of good policing and I feel like that's what the chief is working toward.'

Rest in Peace.

Prince George Police Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin ^ was shot five times with a shotgun Wednesday when the off-duty officer attempted to intervene in a dispute between his neighbors. Rest in Peace.

Three different judges reportedly ordered the killer, Glenn Tyndell, to "immediately surrender all firearms" after they found his wife, ex-wife and child needed protection. Prince George's County Sheriff's Col. Darrin C. Palmer says Tyndell had told deputies he'd turn himself in Tuesday. He didn't show.

[Image: Glenn-Tyndell-300x300.jpg?resize=300%2C300]
^ Tyndell had been court-ordered to surrender his guns at least three times in the last five years.

Those guns should have been taken right away. It should not have been left to this violent repeat offender to voluntarily surrender them, yet again.

Anyway, Tyndell fled after the murder and was fatally shot by responding officers.

It's becoming unforgivable to me, at this point.

So many in law enforcement are gun enthusiasts; I think that often leads them to go very soft when it comes to removing guns from troubled citizens (even in cases where they have the legal green-light to do so, like this one).

That seems to be changing some though. Cops are seeing the public reaction to that softness and also seeing too many of their own being lost because of that softness.

Plus, for the first time in my lifetime, the NRA (and many Republican politicians) are now viewing and targeting law enforcement as their opponent. That trio has been joined at the hip, for as long as I can remember. The break-up between them could be a very good thing for society and the law enforcement community, in my opinion.

Rest in peace Officer Sean Gannon.

Gannon, 32, was known as 'the Tom Brady' of Yarmouth Police Department. He was an eight year veteran and described as a dedicated and well-loved officer on the force and in the community.

On Thursday, Gannon was shot in the head while trying to apprehend a career criminal for gun offenses.

Gannon's K-9 partner Nero sustained multiple gun shot wounds, but fortunately survived and is still being treated in a veterinary hospital.

Thomas M. Latanowich ^ shot Gannon and Nero as they tried to arrest him in the attic of his Cape Cod home on Thursday. He was arrested shortly thereafter.

Latanowich has 111 previous arrests for violence, drugs, and gun violations. He'd recently been arrested for strangling a pregnant woman and stabbing a man at a traffic light. Yet, he was still out on probation.

The realization that someone with such an extensive criminal past had remained free, despite repeated encounters with authorities, ignited outrage among grieving members of the law enforcement community Friday.

He should not have been freed given the nature of his crimes, in my opinion. He'll likely never walk free again now though.

Sgt. Noel Ramirez (30) and Deputy Taylor Lindsey (25) of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office were killed on Thursday. Ramirez was a husband and father of two young children and Lindsey had just gotten engaged.

Sheriff Schultz told reporters that the two officers were "men of integrity, men of loyalty....God-fearing men who loved what they did, and we are very proud of them." Rest in peace.

At first, the Sheriff said that the officers were shot in their parole car and attributed it to hatred of law enforcement. Then, he said they were shot through the window of a restaurant where they were eating.

Now, it's been confirmed they were eating in a restaurant when the shooter walked in, shot them, and then went to his car and killed himself and that the motive will probably never be known.

The killer, 59-year-old John Hubert Highnote, had no apparent previous contact with the slain officers. He was arrested in 1978 for weapons violations and twice in the 90s -- for domestic violence and criminal mischief. He had no recent criminal offenses.
