DA to Seek Death Penalty for Killing of Off-Duty N.C. Officer

July 19, 2012  | 

Robeson County, N.C., District Attorney Johnson Britt will seek the death penalty for the man who is charged with shooting and killing Lumberton police Officer Jeremiah Goodson on Tuesday.

“Because he is accused of killing a police officer,” Britt said. “That’s an aggravating factor under North Carolina statute.”

Marques Brown, 27, is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting that killed Goodson at a local gas station while the officer was attempting to serve a warrant for Brown’s arrest. Goodson was off duty and assisting another officer at the time of the shooting.

This pos never should have made it to a cell. Now we have the dog & pony show trial that drags on and on. The other Officer should have dispatched this turd at the scene and saved everybody grief. But, I wasen't there so I'll just hope for a fast trial & faster execution.

The thing that gets me the most is the wife and child he left behind. Poor kid he or she will never get to know their dad, who died a hero. The other thing is when this p.o.s. goes to prison, he will be a god to the rest of the prison population. Well I just hope he goes through a lot of agonizing pain, when he's finally put out of his misery....in HELL.
