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.

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.

Somerset County Sheriff's Corporal Eugene Cole, 62 (pictured center) was found shot to death in a front yard in Norridgewock on Wednesday morning. He was a 13 year veteran of the force and described as the best of the best. Rest in peace.

Today, the suspect, John Daniel Williams, was arrested exiting a woody area. He was shirtless and barefoot. Scary looking dude. He was arrested one hour after his wife read a plea for him to turn himself in. (Edit: corrected suspect’s name)

Authorities said Williams also stole Cole's police cruiser and robbed a Cumberland Farms convenience store. Cole's car was later found abandoned off Martin Road around 5am on Wednesday.

Williams has a criminal history and was arrested in March by Massachusetts State Police and charged with carrying a firearm without a license, possession of a large-capacity firearm and other offenses. He was scheduled to appear in court for a hearing the day of the shooting.

Somerset County Sheriff's Department has not released a motive for Wednesday's crime.

Baltimore, Maryland

[Image: fallen_officer_1527001751326_5568304_ver1.0_640_360.jpg]
Baltimore County officer Amy Caprio, 30, died earlier this month while responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle. She had been with the force for nearly four years. Rest in peace.

Her funeral last Friday was attended by more than a thousand, including one hundred fellow officers. Caprio was the first female officer killed in the line of duty in Baltimore.

[Image: Amy-Caprio-Suspects.jpg]
Police accused 16-year-old Dawnta Harris (^ left) of running over her in a stolen Jeep.

The state was formally supervising Harris, who was wearing an ankle bracelet pending sentencing for auto theft when he was arrested in Caprio's death. On May 22, Harris was ordered held without bail by a judge who called him a "one-man crime wave."

Also facing murder charges are his three alleged accomplices, all teens, pictured above. They were allegedly committing a burglary when Caprio was run down.

In Maryland, if someone is killed during a burglary, accomplices can be found guilty of murder along with the killer.

Dickson County sheriff's Sgt. Daniel Baker was killed after responding to a call about a suspicious car stopped on the side of the roadway early Wednesday, the state police agency said.

Baker couldn't be contacted for some time, but the deputy's car was eventually tracked by GPS to a wooded area 2 or 3 miles away. The deputy was found dead inside of it.

The sheriff said Baker, 32, was one of their best, working his way up to sergeant on patrol during 10 years with the department. He also served in the Marine Corps Reserves. Baker was survived by his wife and daughter. Rest in Peace.

LE quickly arrested a woman who was with the shooter and charged her with murder. The shooter fled into nearby woods.

The suspect, Steven Wiggins, was found in the woods by TBI after a 2-day manhunt; his clothes were torn and he'd been exposed to the elements.

Arresting officers restrained Wiggins with Officer Baker's handcuffs.

Wiggins was taken for medical evaluation and charged with murder.

Kansas

Wyandotte County sheriff deputy ^ Patrick Rohrer, 35, has died and another deputy is in critical condition at the University of Kansas Hospital after both were shot Friday morning as they transported an inmate for a hearing at the Wyandotte County Correctional and Court Services building.

Rohrer had been with the department for seven years. Rest in Peace. The identity of a female deputy who was also shot was not disclosed; hoping she pulls through.

Officials described a terrifying scenario in which a suspect may have obtained a gun from the deputies and shot them as they got the suspect out of the van and prepared to bring the suspect into the court services building.

"When they pulled into the parking lot ready to transport these inmates they (the deputies) were overcome," said Wyandotte County Sheriff's spokeswoman Kelli Bailiff during an afternoon press conference at the University of Kansas Hospital. "It is very possible that with their own firearm they were shot."

An unidentified suspect was also shot and transported to a hospital. The suspect's condition was unknown.

The shooting happened in a gated portion of the back parking lot of the court services building. The Wyandotte County Correction and Court Services building, which is immediately north of the Wyandotte County Courthouse, is used for juvenile courts, community corrections and also has two criminal courtrooms.

Antoine Fielder was already facing homicide charges pertaining to two separate murders before he allegedly shot and killed Deputy Patrick Rohrer and Deputy Theresa King, 44, in Kansas City Friday morning. I wonder why he was able to do this. Was he not shackled?

[Image: 1529147782166.jpg?ve=1&tl=1]

Fielder allegedly got a hold of a deputy’s firearm while in the transport vehicle, according to sources. It is unclear at this time whether one of the two deputies shot the suspect or whether a third deputy stepped in to shoot the suspect

Very sad. I hope this prompts a change in the transportation of the criminals. I am surprised if no one was waiting for them on the receiving end as back up.

Also I assume the inmate did not get away. What did they have to gain from this?

Edit: Inmate is in hospital.

For some reason I was thinking there were 2 inmates. There was only 1, wow!
