Now we have to morn more officers.

Once again we have to say good bye to police officers.

Police Chief Nate Harper said the motive for the shooting isn’t clear, but friends said the gunman recently had been upset about losing his job and feared the Obama administration was poised to ban guns.
Richard Poplawski, 23, met officers at the doorway and shot two of them in the head immediately, Harper said. An officer who tried to help the two also was killed.
Poplawski, armed with an assault rifle and two other guns, then held police at bay for four hours as the fallen officers were left bleeding nearby, their colleagues unable to reach them, according to police and witnesses. More than 100 rounds were fired by the SWAT teams and Poplawski, Harper said.
The three slain officers were Eric Kelly, 41, Stephen Mayhle, 29, and Paul Sciullo III, 37. Kelly had been on the force for 14 years, Mayhle and Sciullo for two years each. Another officer, Timothy McManaway, was shot in the hand and a fifth broke his leg on a fence.

  1. Mike,Such a tragedy and for what? I can\’t understand all the violence in today\’s world. God bless the police officers who do their best to protect us and God bless the families who mourn for these men.

  2. I could say that the \”suspect\” is a sick individual but I will not.What I will say is that scumbag deserves a reservation in he##. He is lucky that he did not die in the shootout as did the scumbag that killed the Oakland Ca.Cops.

  3. Irish Cofeehouse and such a waiste,this jerk heard that assult weopans may be banned again and thinking that all gunes would be banned and takes it out on Cops.that is one worthless piece of sh%%

  4. I came over from Mary\’s… and read down to this post..just last night a deputy from the next county from me was killed.. another deputy shot and the person doing the shooting died at the hospital… he had killed his girlfriend before he ran …such a waste… 3 families dealing with death and another family hoping their person survives…
