    Sucks. I thought you were gonna link that 15 year old girl who got maced by the cops when I saw your headline. But she bit the cop, and he told her at least 20 times to quit resisting arrest, and she still struggled.

    As for this, you guys are under an enormous amount of stress, and unfortunately you have to be able to handle it or get help when needed. It is sad, as I hate for anyone to be killed, especially at the hands of a law enforcement officer.

    Yeah some people just cant handle the stress that comes along with the job and it sucks that it just comes down to this and they think its their only way out. From what I understand it was his girlfriend that was at the party and he went after her but I dont think its all confirmed yet so there might be more to it.

    I live about 45 minutes south of Crandon in Northeastern Wisconsin. I heard about the news after I was finishing translating some French text for research. It is a sad situation to see a small town go through something like that. From what I heard, a young girl around 14 years of age and two high school boys on the football team were believed to be victoms in the shooting.

    This not the first time police officers in general has faced trouble with the law in NE Wisconsin. A Wausau police officer is facing attempted murder charges for trying to kill his ex-wife just last week.

    Wow....way too much going on. Prowl, you are a fine example of a police officer and if most police have half the integrity you do then we are all in good hands.

    That's why 20 year olds aren't aloud to be cops in this state.

    Also...LOL at the mayor. Keep the whole town on lock down well after the fact and try to instill a gag order on the entire town. Way to illegally abuse power and to ensure you will not get re-elected. Asshole.

    I don't think we'll need to worry about this cop going to trial. If they don't protect him while he is in custody from other cops he is likely to end up dead. If there is one thing cops don't like more then anything else is a cop worse then them, or a cop gone bad. If he makes it prison, he'll likely go to a restricted ward and see daylight for only an hour a day for the rest of his life.

    I'm wondering what stresses this guy really had to deal with. He was a cop in a town of 2000 people. The town I live in is more an order of magnitude more populated and our cops regularly have nothing to do. Hell, they shut down streets for practically the entire day if there is a traffic accident.

    Sounds more like this guy was just off his rocker and should have been screened out during a psychological examination.


    Also, locking down the town WTF? I'd be calling for the mayor's arrest for illegally detaining the entire town.

    I think when they locked down the town it was to protect everyone else cause at the time they still did not have the subject in custody. I think after they killed the offender they let everyone move around.

    Good cops hate bad cops almost as much as good cops hates scalpers.

    "A family member of one of the victims told WITI-TV, a FOX affiliate, that one of the victims involved in the shooting is a student at the Milwaukee Area Technical College."

    I find it hard to grasp the relevance of this detail. Why is the fact that one of the victims is going to a technical college important?

    And a cure for this is better psych screenings in the hiring phase.

    Same with the military.

    Whack-jobs are gonna be attracted to jobs with authority.

    Making a lot of good people look bad.

    It's not. It's a journalistic trick to get the reader to connect more with the article. Instead of an anonymous victim, there's now a victim that goes to the college that I go to, or goes to the college I work at, or goes to the college I graduated from, or goes to the college I drive by every day, or goes to the college my friends go to ... etc.

    It's a way to evoke emotional response for an otherwise cut-and-dry story.
