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.

^ 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.

Another instance where something wasn't followed through. This is fuckin' ridiculous.

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.

Florida

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.
