    Wauwatosa police officer found dead

    http://www.wisn.com/news/south-east-...5/-/index.html

    I hope whoever did this is found quickly!

    Authorities have said the area is safe and that they believe there is no threat to the public.
    What?! How is the area safe when a criminal takes the life of an officer?

    There's no cause reported, so how do you know that (s)he didn't choke on a stale doughnut???
    Instead of being first to post, maybe first to find the facts would be a good strategy...

    How about reading between the lines in an article, especially this part:

    Several law enforcement agencies have responded to the area after the initial report of an officer down, including the Wauwatosa, West Allis and Elm Grove police departments as well as the Wisconsin State Patrol.

    Suicide would be my guess.

    But then untill the investigation is complete we will not know.

    If suicide, this continues to prove why cops should not be allowed access to dangerous weapons.

    Story now says she was shot multiple times, so not a suicide.

    The investigation continues unless the perp left his DL and a note it could take a while to find out who,what and why.

    Not necessarily. First shot could have failed to cause death quickly enough.

    I heard that they're working on it being a fly-by because they found spilled milk, cookie crumbs, and reindeer prints near the scene... I'm thinking it was a naughty listing gone bad.

    In my state, an equal # of troopers have been killed by trooper spouses as by bad guys....

    so lets see what this one ends up being due to ...

    Clearly the person(s) should be found and put to trial if appropriate.

    Joseph, you miss a lot by not being on Facebook any longer. This was being talked about almost as soon as it hit the air Monday.

    She was shot multiple times. (IIRC, 8 or 9.)

    She'd have to be very determined to shoot herself 8 times.
    And they aren't saying if her gun was fired, or if it was even left with her body.

    I'm grimly amused at what an effort the Tosa cops go to when there's a murder in their town,
    and the fuss the media makes,
    while the several-times-a-week murders next door in Milwaukee are ho-hum, get a couple police cars for a few hours, maybe a mention on the evening news once or twice...
    Or do you think maybe this has something to do with the victim being an officer?

    Yeah, the noon news said he's a "person of interest" and "not under arrest", but he's being held & questioned at the W Allis PD.
    Whaddayawanna bet he's not free to leave (so he really is under arrest)?
    Hope he has the sense to demand a lawyer & not say anything.
    I'm glad that the Tosa PD at least had the sense not to involve themselves, which could taint any results.

    Not unusual ! Should secure your gun better (assuming the cop was killed by the cop's own gun)

    This scared the crap out of me. An old Air Force buddy is a cop in Tosa. I'm glad he's safe, but I feel terrible for this officer's family.

    Its the women, I tell ya!

    Here's the proof. Some years ago, a study was done. Survey actually. Numerous married couples were asked how long they knew their spouse before the wedding. The women averaged a couple months earlier than the men. The conclusion: the poor husbands were already in the sights before they even noticed the woman.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Please don't educate me in my refusal to take his statement in the way I've chosen to take it. LOL I knew exactly how he meant it but it "could " have been read in the way to support the query I asked.

    He served 2 tours of duty in Iraq. In another post I did say that if retired marines need to guard our schools they need to be mentally assesed bec war does effest military personel. That may be a factor in the murder. But we don't know the details yet... just speculating. Maybe he or she were having an affair, or financial stress etc...

    From the news conference I heard he stalked her for several days before the shooting. What would like to know is how none of the firemen heard the shots?
