Another police officer killed by a whack job that served time in prison. Do you ever REALLY wonder why cops are a little on edge these days? I could not do what they do because I'd be a total wreck thinking some idiot is going to just shoot at me out of the clear blue because of my job. Another shooting with a semi-automatic weapon too.
This is a terribly sad thing for the City of Clinton, the state of Missouri and this guys family.
