1. Road raging maniac loses control.
2. Guy wounds police dog, cops kill guy.
3. Guy wounds deputy, SWAT team kills guy. That happened during a "wellness check" whatever that is.
One trenchant observation was this.
Turner [Police Chief George Turner] said he couldn't explain the recent spurt of gun crimes that has taken place throughout the city and county.
"There are just a lot of violent people out there who don't care about the lives and liberties of others," he said.
I wonder if he could be referring to another kind of "liberty" than the one the pro-gun crowd is always talking about. This sounds more like the liberty of not living in a society where guns are so available, where the pro-gun folks keep preaching that more guns is the answer, now fewer. I think that's the kind of liberty the police chief is talking about.
