    ...my heart is heavy. my old hometown back in Ohio, Twinsburg, has lost its first-ever LEO officer killed in the line of duty.

    Ptl. Josh Miktarian, stopped some POS at 2:00 am Sunday for loud music and dui. In less than 2 minutes, the perp, who had a concealed carry permit, shot him 4 times, killing him. they caught this puke at a relatives' home with the cuffs still on him and with the weapon he used.

    if you've a mind to, a prayer to his young wife and baby would be appreciated. thanks, men.

    That is so sad. How can a person like that get a license to carry?

    You've got to wonder WTF went through that scumbags mind to do that...

    BTW, where did you find that the scumbag had a CHL? According to the article, he'd been popped for carrying in a place that sells booze about a year ago. If he had one at the time, he likely would have at least had it suspended if not revoked. Of course I don't know Ohio carry law though.

    the local "rag" Akron Beacon Journal was reporting he had a concealed carry permit:

    story now says the investigation shows 9mm slugs in the ground, showing this POS shot the Officer while he was already down on the ground.

    ...my blood is boiling....

    That's a sad story to say the least. Yet again, to those of you with us that are LEO's, thank you very much for doing what you do. I just wish more people understood the kind of crap and danger the police have to deal with on a daily basis. Maybe then the police wouldn't be getting such a bad wrap all the time. I have great respect for those out there putting their lives on the line.
