"Today proved to be devastating to the Colorado Springs Police Department," Chief Pete Carey told the Gazette.

It's very sad when another officer dies, but an execution is stopped. There is something very wrong in this country when more officers die a year than inmates executed. When we get to the point when there is more criminals executed than officers dying every year, then we are getting somewhere.
