    ...incident in a small town about 80 miles south of where I live, actually quite horrific:

    http://www.foxnews.com/wires/2007Oct...ooting,00.html

    I wondered what in good Christ compelled these people to give this kid a badge and gun (he was 19 when he was hired), and then have him serve as a full-time Sheriff's deputy while also working as a part-time village officer in Crandon, where this occurred.

    Today, I read this - note the headline, and read the fourth and fifth paragraphs:

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,300669,00.html

    Un-fucking-believable.

    He was clearly try to nail the brain cell.

    Whatever his upset at unrequited love since when in all humanity was that put right by shooting a 14 year old girl? His wires weren't crossed they were fused and melted.

    I was reading about this yesterday. Apparently, there is no psychological testing of police officers in Wisconsin, before they are hired.

    Tragic.

    yeah, after all going through a 2 day waiting period is way harder than becoming a police officer.

    Both are equally absurd. I would like to think that becoming a "peace" officer involves more than filling out an application.


    Btw, Due to the typo in the thread title...I thought Dave went on a rampage.
