Deputies then tracked Randy Gilbert Newberry, 52, to a residence in the woods near Vansant, Va. Newberry was shot and killed.

I am so sad to hear of more LEO's were killed and injuried. This has gotten out of control. None of these scumbags care if they kill a cop anymore, we need to pressure our states and goverment to pass a law that will give these bad guys Death Sentence if the kill or attempt to kill a LEO. No more life terms......its death and no delays. I pray for my fellow officers for a fast recovery and for the families of the fallen ones.

IT is time for us to start wearing plate carriers as the norm. And if sentences were something to actually fear, some of our Brothers and sisters would still be alive

Another sad day for Law Enforcement. My heart goes out to all. I'll continue to keep everyone in my prayers.
