Home Invader Who Shot Pa. Cop Posed as FBI Agent

April 06, 2011  | 

A suburban Pennsylvania police officer may be paralyzed, after he was shot by home invaders Tuesday, who had posed as FBI agents to gain entry to a house and demanded narcotics and cash.

Upon arriving at the home, Clairton Police Officer James Kuzak Jr. and fellow officers heard one of the two gunmen inside say, "We're going to have to shoot our way out," reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Police have charged Myles Jordan Hutchinson, 21, with aggravated assault, assaulting a law enforcement officer, robbery and other crimes in connection with the shooting.

Officer Kuzak, who has been an officer for 15 years, may be paralyzed as a result of the shooting. He is now in critical condition at UPMC Mercy, Uptown.

There seems to be no denial of the recent trend in shooting officers. The way things are going it is time to stop being so nice to these scum bags. Anyone willing to shoot police officers does not deserve the courtesy of being arrested and taken into custody then supported by the taxpayers.

I think we should execute these scumbags especially when if involves a LEO.
Our courts are so full of liberal attorneys and judges its makes me sick.
I hope for the best for the officer and his family.
