Va. Sniper Killed Two Deputies, Wounded Two

March 13, 2011  | 

Two Buchanan County (Va.) Sheriff's deputies were fatally shot in southwest Virginia while responding to a robbery at an auto salvage shop, reports the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.

Deputies William Ezra Stiltner, 46, and Cameron Neil Justus, 41, were apparently shot at long range at about 2 p.m. Sunday while responding as backup officers. The two deputies who initially reponded were also shot and are now recovering. One is on a respirator.

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
