COME ON LEOs! Please remember the basics of what we were all trained! Search thoroughly, if a weapon is found, continue searching for additional weapons (we carry back ups, criminals do too). AND no matter if the suspect has been "searched" several times before you take custody, search them again! Mistakes are made, redundant search prevent LEOs from being shot. We are lucky this criminal (whoever it was) didn't want to shoot a cop, obviously he/she could have. WISE UP, don't be in such a hurry, do the right thing, take your time, be safe. WHY do we need to repeatedly see and hear about these types of mistakes. Several officers have been killed just this past year after armed "already searched suspects" pulled out weapons and killed them.

Either someone did a lousy patdown or there are some officers that need to be relieved of duty. We will see what the investigation reveals.

Brothers/sisters, save your life, check all the spots you don't want to check, it can be that one spot that gets you killed. Sure it's no fun but your life is at stake here. Stay safe.

In god we trust. Everyone, and I mean everyone else gets searched. Rule 1 guys and gals, go home at the end of your shift.
