    Maybe if the child molester wasn't out on bail, something like this could have been avoided...

    Wythe, Pulaski counties manhunt underway; deputy, two others shot, schools locked down

    By Assocaited Press


    Authorities searched in two counties Tuesday for a man suspected of shooting two neighbors — one fatally — and a sheriff's deputy. A woman also was injured when she apparently jumped from the second story of a house to escape a fire that authorities believe was connected to the shootings.
    Virginia State Police Sgt. Michael Conroy said police were searching in Wythe and Pulaski counties for Douglas Albert Jaccard, of the Draper area of Wythe County.
    Five schools in Wythe County were locked down, but school officials said all students were safe.
    Jaccard's neighbors were shot at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
    Conroy said when a Pulaski County deputy arrived at the scene, the suspect shot him and fled into a wooded area. He said the deputy was protected by a bulletproof vest.
    Pulaski Community Hospital spokeswoman Nancy May said a woman was brought to the hospital about 10:45 a.m. with injuries from jumping out of a burning house.
    The deputy was listed in stable condition at the hospital, and May said another shooting victim was transferred to a Roanoke hospital.
    According to online court records, Jaccard was scheduled to enter a plea Wednesday in Wythe County Circuit Court to two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor, abduction and possession of explosives by a convicted felon.

    +1000 He was already a convicted felon, and on the hook for two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor, abduction and possession of explosives by a convicted felon. This guy should have not been running around free.

    I know how I hope this story ends. Hint: Not with us paying for court costs, three hots and a cot for him for the next couple decades.

    Best wishes to the officer that was shot in the line of duty, and the other victims of this nut bag. Hope they makes a quick and full recovery.

    Unbelievable how the stte has someone like this in their custody, let him go free, he does the predictable, and the solution (according to many) is to disarm the rest of us.

    There's more than one criminal act in this story.

    Anyone heard if they have bagged this loser yet? This guy is....another good reason to carry.



    Police search for Va. man wanted in 3 shootings
    By the Associated PressDecember 16, 2008
    DRAPER, Va. - Police searched two counties in southwest Virginia on Tuesday for a man accused of killing a neighbor with whom he had feuded and wounding another neighbor and a sheriff's deputy.

    A day earlier, alleged shooter Douglas Albert Jaccard, 58, and neighbor Joseph Foster Bane, 45, had called the sheriff's department to lodge complaints against one another. No charges were filed and officials said the two had a history of bad blood, though they weren't sure what Monday's dispute was about, said Chief Deputy Keith Dunagan of the Wythe County Sheriff's Office.

    Jaccard shot Bane and another neighbor, then shot a sheriff's deputy who responded to the scene, said Virginia State Police Sgt. Michael Conroy. The deputy, J.A. Radcliffe, 46, was protected by his bulletproof vest and was in stable condition at a hospital. Information on the condition of the other neighbor wasn't available.

    A woman also was injured when she jumped from the second story of a nearby house to escape a fire that authorities believe was connected to the shootings. Dunagan said firefighters had to let her house burn down because "we had a guy in the woods shooting" and fire trucks couldn't safely respond.

    Other houses were evacuated as more than 100 law enforcement officers, tracking dogs and a trained tracker from the state game department looked for Jaccard. Five schools in Wythe County were locked down, but school officials said all students were safe.

    Shots were fired at two Wythe County sheriff's deputies but they were not injured, Dunagan said.

    According to online court records, Jaccard, of the Draper area of Wythe County, was scheduled to enter a plea Wednesday in county court to two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor, abduction and possession of explosives by a convicted felon.

    I think the "child molester" part trumps everything honestly. For cops, citizens, and criminals alike.

    Doug,

    I hold special contempt for those that abuse children. Does that make children more equal in my eyes??? Yes, in a specific light yes it does. Should I have a problem with that...sorry I don't.

    I would have no problem a rapist being imprisoned for life as the ideal punishment, but don't see a need for the courts to go beyond that. A molester of young children on the other hand....castration and/or capital punishment would be reasonable to me in many to most cases.

    So, yes we are not equal in all things. Some victims are more vulnerable then others and some criminals reach even higher levels of depravity by the crimes and victims they pick.

    Will

    Wythe County shootings spark massive manhunt
    BARREN SPRINGS -- Law enforcement officers from more than a dozen local, state and federal agencies searched through the day and night Tuesday for a man they believe killed one man, shot and injured two more, including a deputy, and set fire to a house while two people were inside.
    Douglas Albert Jaccard, a 58-year-old Vietnam veteran with a criminal history and a pending court case, is familiar with the woods around his Wythe County home and is considered armed and dangerous, Chief Deputy Keith Dunagan of the Wythe County Sheriff's Office said.
    He said officers planned to search for Jaccard "until we know that he's not out here anymore or until he is arrested."
    The man who was killed was identified as Joseph Foster Bane, 45. Bane lived on Dyer Road, across from Jaccard on a road where only about six houses sit off Virginia 100 near the Pulaski County line. He was killed on the front lawn just past 7 a.m., Dunagan said.
    Bane's sister-in-law, Sarah Hicks, who also lives on Dyer Road, said her father, Jerry Covey, heard the gunshot and went outside to help. He was shot in the arm, she said. Covey, 61, was taken to Pulaski Community Hospital and then transferred to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery, she said.
    After the shootings, Hicks said, Jaccard broke into Bane's house and set it on fire. Hicks' sister, Sharon Bane, and the Banes' teenage son were inside.
    Sharon Bane was afraid to leave the house at first, Dunagan said, believing Jaccard was still there. She finally jumped out a second-story window, Hicks said. She was taken to Pulaski Community Hospital to be treated for injuries.
    Hicks said her nephew made it out safely. The house burned down and was still smoking through the rain that fell Tuesday.
    Hicks said Jaccard has been troubling her family for months, and on Sunday threatened to "take care of us."
    The family notified the Wythe County Sheriff's Office about the threat, she said.
    "We have responded there over the years to several complaints with Mr. Jaccard and his neighbors," Dunagan said. He declined to elaborate but said that recently the neighbors have called about Jaccard and Jaccard has called about them.
    However, Dunagan said, there had been no basis for an arrest to be made.
    In addition to Bane and Covey, Jaccard is suspected of shooting Pulaski County Deputy J.A. Radcliffe. Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis said Radcliffe was struck in the back along the line of his bulletproof vest and suffered only a minor injury. He was taken to Pulaski Community Hospital for observation.
    Radcliffe, 46, has been with the department 14 years, Davis said.
    "He's in great shape," Davis said.
    Dunagan said Jaccard also fired at but missed two Wythe County deputies.
    Jaccard then leaped over a steep bank between his house and his neighbor's house, Dunagan said. The deputies who saw him said he went head over heels, he said.
    Dunagan said he didn't want to speculate on a motive behind the shootings. But court documents show that Jaccard was scheduled to appear in Wythe County Circuit Court today for a pretrial motions hearing on charges of indecent liberties, abduction and possession of explosive materials.
    The charges stem from allegations that on March 18, Jaccard propositioned a 14-year-old boy with whom he was de-barking wood in the Dyer Road neighborhood, according to the circuit court case file.
    According to a criminal complaint, Jaccard asked the boy if he liked oral sex and also asked if the boy would be interested in sex if Jaccard "dressed up like a woman."
    The boy, a neighbor of Jaccard's, told police that he was not directly threatened but that he was scared because Jaccard was using a drawknife to cut the wood.
    Wythe County Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Mabe said Jaccard had rejected any plea agreements, but that his defense attorney hoped to separate the indecent liberties and abduction charges from the explosives charges.
    When police searched Jaccard's house after the allegations, they found three canisters of gunpowder, according to the complaint.
    Jaccard lived alone at the home, Dunagan said.
    Jaccard also told police that he liked to dress as a woman and that he was attracted to children, according to court documents.
    He had previously been convicted of malicious wounding, assault and three counts of brandishing a firearm. He began serving a prison sentence for the malicious wounding charge in 2002, according to the Virginia Department of Corrections.
    A Wythe County jury recommended Jaccard serve a 10-year sentence for the charge and a judge upheld that sentence. But Jaccard and his attorney appealed the case and, in June 2004, the Virginia Supreme Court found that the trial court had erred in telling jurors about a probation revocation as part of Jaccard's criminal history. The high court ordered the case back to Wythe County for a new sentencing hearing, where he got a three-year sentence.
    Several Wythe County schools were put on lockdown Tuesday as police searched for Jaccard, and no buses traveled on Virginia 100 or Virginia 607, Dunagan said. Parents who live along those routes were called to pick up their children.
    Officers from agencies throughout the New River Valley, Virginia State Police, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and U.S. Marshals, along with a helicopter and several tracking dogs, searched nonstop for Jaccard all day. They set up a command post at Riverview Church of God, where members kept them fed.
    About 6 p.m., the church filled with officers -- most dressed in tactical gear -- who came in to relieve those who had worked all day.
    Jaccard's brother, Jeff Jaccard, arrived about 5 p.m. and spent nearly two hours talking with officers in the sanctuary.
    Jaccard is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs about 170 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call 911.
    Staff writers Neil Harvey, Greg Esposito and Sarah Bruyn Jones contributed to this report.
