I sure hope these threats are just that. If not I hope this get resolved quickly. The way this country is going with all sorts of foreign hate groups you never know who the heck your dealing we these days. THis country is going to hell but it's still the best. Maybe we will all wake up and take a right turn in the next few years.

These threats and the ambush are either coming from a gutless piece of crap or a crazy person that is a gutless piece of crap. Good luck finding them and eliminating them for good.

What needs to happen is the people in areas like this need to wake up, have a city council meeting and tell the police department to take off the white gloves and deal with these type issues in a manner that might prevent the murder of another good man or woman.

Chief P; the problem with your solution, much as I agree with it, is that the FBI will then descend and strangle the effectiveness of the program with civil rights allegations to protect the maggots and restrict the cops. Also, looking at the circumstances of the killing, it might be worthwhile to check out those who knew his route home and were familiar with his dog and his routine. Just sayin'.
