Ex-Boss: Rampage Suspect Was 'Spooky' Recently

According to the police, this guy had hidden himself away in a small room in the building. They figure that's how he managed to escape the effects of the gas which they applied several times. As the police began to enter the building yesterday morning he suddenly flung the door to the small room open and began to fire, killing the police dog. The officers returned fire, killing the subject. I suppose that they just could have sat in the situation for a month or so; after a week or ten days the stench of a rotting corpse would have told them that he'd off't himself. But then again, who's to say that he might not have had a year's worth of MRE's and water stacked up in there? For how long do you lock down the business section of a small town? At some point there has to be a judgement call made as to when to pull the pin and move.

Really, being "kind, caring and intelligent" now involves feeling sorry for a murderer who got what he deserved? Give me a break!!

I love the Post Journal because the readership seems to be so kind, caring and intelligent.

Hey, DanFal, this murderer who engaged the police in a gun fight and got killed, just got his due process. By all accounts, the police followed section 35 of the New York state penal law perfectly!

I noted that Prince Andy of Albany quickly showed up in Herkimer yesterday. I can't figure out if he was there to provide some personal tactical assistance, or simply to make the police a loan of that Model 1100 shotgun that he talks about so much.

Looks like the shooter took Joe Biden's advice. Arrest Joe Biden.

@ Seadog- first the name is not Dabfal. The very fact that you cannot copy correctly six easy letters tells me you are not even worth replying to. Do you even have a GED?

This is the first and only time that I have to agree with Khulumzurug. But I disagree with the article when it says that no officers were injured. The police dog that was shot and killed was as much an officer as the human ones. The Canine cops are a valuable asset to any Police force and should be honored as such.

You are mistaken, he received due process under the law. The police were there to arrest him, they sent the dog first, because he was armed and dangerous, and gave him a chance to surrender himself. He instead opened fire, and died while resisting arrest.

Guilty or not, he did not receive due process under the law. Is this whole country going to be run as an eye for an eye. Soon we will all be blind.

Sounds like a story from a Clint Eastwood movie. Ban Clint Eastwood movies!

Makes as much sense as anti-gun laws.
