A Washington state deputy accused of killing two relatives was found dead in a home Saturday morning, police said.A sad story indeed. It made me wonder about the VPC tabulations. Maybe they need to add police killers as a separate category. They count too.
The suspect, an 11-year veteran Pierce County deputy, had been barricaded in the home for hours after shooting his in-laws, police said.
Authorities were not "100 percent" sure that the suspect died from self-inflicted wounds, according to a police spokeswoman.
The suspect's father-in-law died in the home, said Ed Troyer, another sheriff's department spokesman. His mother-in-law was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died, police said.
Troyer added that the deputy held his teenage children hostage for a while, but that they had been released.
The answer is not to disarm all the policemen, or to disarm all the people. The answer is to screen them better and to monitor them better.
