Damn, that sucks.  I used to want to go into that line of work, but my father mentioned how it's one of the most dangerous jobs out there, primarily since everyone you deal with will most likely be carrying a gun.  So instead, I am chasing drug smugglers around the southern border.  Go figure.

Condolences to his friends and family.

Chasing drug dealers around

Chasing drug dealers around our borders is an important job and like our military vets you deserve out thanks and appreciation for doing a tuff job.  It seems like you and your colleagues don't get the support that you really deserve.  It is a scary place there on the border from what I read and see on tv.

Any New Developments?

I'm wondering if there are new developments on this case....haven't heard anything else yet over here.  This happened not far from Pittsburgh where I live.

This is the latest.  The 27

This is the latest.  The 27 year old suspect was returned to prison without bail and was ordered to stand trial.  The latest article I read said that they recovered 25 shell casings from the scene.

I don't know if it was reported before, but the game warden was investigating someone poaching with a spot light when he was killed.

Such a tradegy that didn't need to happen.

25 shell casings found at the scene... that is scary. That sounds like it was quite the fire fight. I sure wish things would have happened differently. That is such a tragedy that he had to die in such a stupid way. I can not believe that the poacher figured that it was worth killing a good man over a spike buck. That is just crazy.

It is crazy, but

It is crazy, but unfortunately it is not uncommon today.  So many criminals are convicted of crimes, do little or no time and then go on to commit violent crimes.  Many people are killed by repeat offenders over small amounts of money or sneakers and so on.

These criminals not only kill someone, they wreck families and children's futures when they rob them of their parent.
