Well, that was quick.
A few hours after the blog entry below this one was posted, at about 2:45 Pacific time this morning, the suspect in the assassination of four Lakewood, Washington police officers approached a Seattle patrolman from behind as the cop was checking out the perp’s stolen car. Refusing an order to halt and show his hands, the killer moved toward the officer and then darted around the vehicle, in a manner consistent with taking cover. The cop lit him up. The dead punk had been armed with a pistol belonging to one of the murdered officers.
Seattle is a bastion of lightweight yuppiedom, and sure enough, there are already heart-wringing whines that the slain monster was “executed” for revenge.
As noted yesterday, former Governor and Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is being hammered for his commutation of this monster’s sentence years ago. Gotta say, though, Huckabee sacked up and took responsibility for his actions.
The cop-killer died with a bullet wound inflicted by one of his victims still festering in his abdomen. Brave when it came to murdering off-guard people by surprise or raping 12-year-old girls, he lost decisively and totally when he faced a single vigilant armed individual who knew what to do – and did it.
Apparently the monster’s friends and relatives helped him while he was on the run. Look for some of them to sue the officer and his department for wrongful death. Of course, they’ll be kinda busy paying other lawyers to defend them on aiding and abetting charges…
