4 Police Officers Slain… Lakewood, Washington
After getting a message from my friend who lives in Tacoma, WA. and then getting a breaking news text from CNN, I really couldn’t believe what I was reading. 4 Slain Officers in Lakewood, WA. That just sucks to be honest. According to some news reports these 4 officers were sitting around the coffee shop awaiting the start of their shifts and someone opened fire on them. I hope they find the one responsible who blatantly thought about these killings prior to doing them. I will update this more as information is released..
taken from king5.com:
“All four of our slain officers had been with this department since it started five years ago. Sergeant Mark Renninger and Officers Ronald Owens, Tina Griswold, and Greg Richards were police veterans when they started and all have been outstanding professionals,” said Lakewood Police Chief Bret Farrar in a press release. “This is a very difficult time for our families and our officers. The families will have many challenges ahead of them and we ask that their privacy be respected. Please keep our families and Lakewood Police in your prayers.”
Those interested in supporting the families of the slain officers are welcome to make a donation through the Lakewood Police Independent Guild (LPIG) Benevolent Fund at PO Box 99579, Lakewood, WA 98499.
This is truly sad. A man from Los Angeles, shot and killed his wife, three sons, mother-in-law and then himself.
Snippet of Article:
It’s “a very tragic scene, total devastation inside this home,” Deputy Chief Michael Moore told reporters at a news conference. “Inside the home, officers discovered six bodies, all belonging to the family that lived at this location.”
It really is sad that he felt this was the way out and all would be better this way. I’m sure he is not the only one having financial issues with the way the market is crashing and all the other “Bailout” plans and banks falling down, etc. etc.

I think this is crazy. This teen who is 18 years old, tried to off his mother so he could sell some things and pay for his finance (21) to get breast augmentation. Seriously? I’m not really sure what this kid was thinking. So Nikita Weis offered two men $7,000 to kill his mom. LOL.. He planned on selling his mothers car and to empty all her bank accounts so his 21 year old girl could get some fake boobs.
But the best part, his mom (42) foiled the whole thing when one of the men entered her home and she set off her car’s panic alarm and scared off the intruder. The son was home at the time and his girlfriend was waiting outside of the house during the break in. (awesome!!!) So the teen and his girl were booked on conspiracy to commit murder and they mentioned that there were going to bury the body in New Mexico or Arizona or some remote location. lol

So while I have been home sick, I like to watch court tv or I guess they call it TRU tv now or something like that. So today they were having live coverage and playing some past clips of this murder trial that has been going on. I somewhat remember this happening but with so many events that happen in the US Crime world some things just seem to go away.
So the trial was about Entwistle who killed his wife and his 9-year-old daughter and then fled to England. According to his lawyers, they tried to say the wife did it in a murder suicide crime. But the jury didn’t buy that one today as he was found guilty of murder.
Other than that, I’ve actually been pretty bored. I have had to do some remote work cause it just can’t wait till I get back tomorrow. I have done some plurks, and played some pogo.com and checked my email, and did a bunch of entrecard drops. So I think now it’s time I take up a movie that we have recorded and needs to be watched.
But overall I am feeling better now that I have had 24 hours of antibiotics in me and I actually got some sleep last night.
Back on the 20th I wrote about an unrelated shooting spree in Chicago..
Well today they found 3 more dead in a home in a crime plagued neighborhood. On CNN (this article) talks more about it but the police state that these 3 deaths are not connected to other recent shootings, or deaths, or however you want to look at it.
Things seem to be out of control and maybe cause its in the mainstream news now.
Here is a little blurb:
Last week, police found five people found dead in a ransacked home. Those deaths brought the number of people shot to death in Chicago in less than a week to more than a dozen.
The latest deaths come just days after Mayor Richard Daley met with more than two dozen officials from religious groups, police, schools and social service agencies to talk about what’s causing the violence and how to stop it.
Police have stepped up patrols, put SWAT officers and specialized units on the street, and increased their fire power by using combat rifles.
Hopefully they can figure something out cause it’s getting crazy..!!!
