Cop killing suspect Eric Frein was arraigned on nine charges in a Pike County, Pa., court Friday, including murder, attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and having a weapon of mass destruction. The prosecutor has said he would seek the death penalty should Frein be convicted.

There was heavy police presence Friday as Frein, the man accused of ambushing and killing Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson, was taken from a patrol car to the Pike County courthouse. He spoke politely when answering the judge’s questions, and was ordered held without bail, NBC News reports.

Outside, a bruised and shackled Frein was led back to a patrol car and faced a crowd of media and hecklers. They jeered at him: “You’re a coward” and “Rot in hell.”

How about this chit. People on Yahoo are complaining about police brutality because scratches on his nose and face.

I agree bm he deserves a fair trial before we shoot him.

It's too bad he was taken alive. Now he can find any one of a dozen loop holes plus a governor can always pardon him later. Southern Law Enforcement rarely takes cop killers alive and I think they have the best method for dealing with the problem.

Kinda looks like he might have resisted a bit. Hmm??

I read an article related tho this. The scratches were from Frein being in the woods and on the run. Congrats to all law enforcement agencies involved in getting this cop killer.

Who gives a damn whatever any of these idiots say "police brutality", they weren't there, and this p.o.s. is off the streets.
