Cop goes on shooting rampage

 I think there should be a very thorough psych evalution before anyone can get a gun, including cops.  Cops are supposed to protect us so stories like this are very scary.  Living in Philadelphia you expect to see shootings on the news everyday, but you assume it is going to say domestic dispute, drug related, or gang violence.  You never want to see school shootings, hate crimes, or multiple shootings.  But lately it seems more and more of these tragic incidents are occuring all over the country.

CRANDON, Wisconsin (CNN) — A 20-year-old off-duty sheriff’s deputy shot and killed six people at an early-morning party before dying under circumstances that remained officially under wraps Sunday night, officials said.   Forest County Sheriff’s Deputy Tyler Peterson, who also worked part-time as a Crandon police officer, stormed into a home where a party was going on and opened fire, friends of the victims told CNN.

School Superintendent Richard Peters told The Associated Press that three local high school students were killed and another three who died had graduated within the past year.”  I don’t want to believe it. I’m waiting for somebody to wake me up,” said Jenny Stahl, the mother of 14-year-old victim Lindsey Stahl.

“This was the kind of scenario where every small town in the USA says, ‘This could never happen here,'” Peters said.  Karly Johnson, 16, told AP she knew the shooter.  “He was nice. He was an average guy — normal. You wouldn’t think he could do that,” Johnson said.
