Four Washington Police Officers Assassinated

By Wyatt Earp | November 29, 2009

Washington Police Murders

There’s a murderous coward hiding somewhere in Washington state today. Hopefully, he will be hunted down like a dog and captured quickly.

SEATTLE — Four police officers were shot dead in a targeted ambush at a Washington state coffee house, a sheriff’s official said Sunday. The attack occurred at Forza Coffee Co., east of McChord Air Force Base in Tacoma, Wash., about 35 miles south of Tacoma.

Officers are now searching for one male suspect who opened fire in the shop before fleeing on foot, reported. Police have not yet ruled out an accomplice.

Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the four officers killed — three men and a woman from the Lakewood Police Department — were in uniform and catching up on paperwork at the beginning of their shifts when they were attacked at 8:15 a.m.

“This was more of an execution. Walk in with the specific mindset to shoot police officers,” Troyer said. (H/TFOXNews)

Again, a coward. Slip in while the officers are busy, murder them, and run away like a puss-aah. Not to worry, though. This piece of detritus will be caught, and with any luck, will violently resist arrest.

If nothing else, it reinforces the fact that people in my profession have to be suspicious of almost every person, every day. There are a lot of toads out there that would like nothing better than to kill someone just because he or she wears a badge.

Please pray for the officers’ families.

UPDATE: It is being reported that the suspected assassin was pardoned by Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in 2004. If that’s true, Huckabee’s political career is D-U-N, done! And rightly so.

GREAT UPDATE!Shot. Dead. When you get to Hell, Clemmons, tell ‘em the Seattle P.D. sent ya!

    Wyatt, all of us have to be suspicious of anyone we meet these days. I accept the fact the officers are on the front line but there are so many total whackos behind the lines the rest of us have to be on the alert.

    Part of my attitude about this is police are real busy these days with violators of HOV lanes, seat belts, smoking in bars, flicking a cigarette butt, etc., etc. Couple that with judges letting lowlifes off the hooks and you have real chaos. In other words the politicians have given them useless assignments, the judges too often let the obviously guilty loose, all of which allows the real criminals to practice their trade.

    This does not even address the terrorists that live among us.

    I hope they find the killer, get whatever information is necessary from him, and we never hear from him again.

    Ralph – Community policing is a big problem in this. We’re spending time locking up people with a half a gram of marijuana or counterfeit DVDs, and a lot of people in the Philadelphia “community” still doesn’t like us.

    Maybe the cities will put a priority into pinching murderers and rapists for a change?

    I hope they catch this SOB soon.
    I never was very fond of Huckabee.
    If it is true it will one more reason to dislike him.

    I hope they catch the scumbags responsible and that they’re prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
    Translation: I hope they catch the low-life bastards and execute the shit out of them. And I hope it’s done swiftly, not let them sit on death row for 15 years.

    Huckabee’s a religious, bible-thumping freak who should have the shit beat out of him. I’m volunteering to do it personally.

    Wyatt, I’m sorry to say this, but I don’t want the perpetrator to be captured.

    I want him to get two in the chest. Skip the one in the head; it’ll be slower that way.

    Rick – I never liked the guy, either, but if this is true, he should be banished.

    DL474 – I concur.

    Proof – You know my feelings on cop killers. I have the same feelings about the people who enable them.

    Randal – Ten rounds, bare knuckle. I got a sawbuck on you.

    Raptor – And it’ll be cool to see him, mouth and eyes wide open, watching the life drain out of him.

    Mrs. Crankipants – I agree. If it’s true, FOXNews better throw him off their network, post haste!

    Once again this is more complicated than Huckabee’s action. Apparently, he was out on bail ($150,000 with $15,000 of his own money) in Washington for assaulting a police officer and 2nd degree rape of a child. I wonder where he got the $15,000. I am also reading that after his sentence was commuted in Arkansas, he violated parole and was put back in prison in 2001 and then released in 2004, reason not stated. I also read notwithstanding his out on bail status there was another outstanding warrant in Washington for him on another matter.

    And people wonder why some of us say the system is broken.

  12. Wyatt Earp Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 8:20 am

    Ralph – The system is irreparably broken, and a fix is nowhere in sight. At least that’s how we feel in Philly.

    November 30th, 2009 at 9:26 am

    I’ve said something like this before and I’ll say it again. It’s a good thing I’m not in charge of his punishment; otherwise, I’d FRY his ass to a burnt crisp!

  14. Thomas F Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Ralph Short,

    It is not more complicated, he was in prison for 95 years, and the moron let him go, there are 703 other time bombs out there, three times the neighboring states for the same time period…….

    It is not more complicated, Huckabee is an idiot and done…..

  15. Thomas F Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 11:43 am

    Oh gee, I was wrong, it was 47y 5m 20d, his minimum release date was in 2015.

  16. C/A Says:

    It’s funny how when a conservative like Huckabee does something that is the staple of the liberal left, like pardon a maniac on compassionate grounds, everyone get’s their panties in a bunch. THAT’S THE PLATFORM OF THE LEFT. The same platform that keeps Mumia alive and will keep John Lewis from being executed. Where is the outrage there?

    Let this be a lesson to ALL politicians: your Christian values of forgiveness DON’T mean sh*t when it comes to murders, rapeists and assorted maniacs. If you pardon a criminal and they offend further, EXPECT to be held accountable.

    Now how about the millions of illegal alien criminals flooding our borders?

  17. Ralph Short Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Apparently, the commutation made him eligible for parole sooner. Now, think about how ridiculous this is where you give a guy a 47 year sentence and he is eligible for parole in 10 or 11 years and is released on the first try. Then, when he violates parole by committing another crime (robbery) he only goes back to jail for 3 years or so.

    Here is another thought on this issue. We have a guy in SC who murdered two people, raped one and did in fact get the death sentence for the first murder. However, it took 1 year to try him, fortunately he was not allowed bail. 2 plus years later, he has just been convicted of the 2nd murder, same death sentence. Looking at a number of these cases, especially where guilt is obvious, I would think we could fast track them to be tried in like 2 weeks. At least that way the guy won’t be out wandering around for a year or so. I think that is part of the broken nature of the system anyway. The other part is weak politicians and judges who seem obsessed with minute details as opposed to actual guilt.

    Randal – Very poor wording, dude. Very poor.

    LDIV – I know what he meant, he just worded it terribly. He means that people shouldn’t be fighting about how “complicated” the release is while this prick is still out there. Let’s rip the people who need to be ripped after he is caught!

    Unfortunately, Ralph Short’s message got thrown in between Captain America’s post and mine. (thanks Ralph) I was commenting on the fact that the Captain always has to go down the road of the liberal left agenda when the fact of the matter is that this post is not the place for that. Who gives a shit what political affiliation Huckabee has; his actions caused the murder of 4 cops.

    If you really think I’m dismissing 4 cops getting killed, then you truly are a douchebag.

    Hey Thomas F, Wyatt doesn’t have to defend me; he probably just knows that you’re just a textbook closet case self-loather. Can’t be comfortable with his own sexuality. Let me know if you’re ever in Philly, I buy you a drink at the 12th Air Command. You’ll fit in nicely.

  27. Lergnom Says:

    12th Air Command? Isn’t the 247 there anymore?

  28. CaptainAmerica Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    Randall: I went down a road you choose to bring up. You chose to bash Huckabee as a Bible thumping freak and wanted to assault him, not me.

    My point is/was that you love religious people when they are propping up the depravity of the left. Usually showing mercy to cop killers (like the two I named) or supporting gay rights, illegal immigration or global warming are staples of the left not right. Can you say ACORN? Your views are in lock step with them save your occasional foray into righteous indignation (Like now).

    The religious left is just fine in your book. The religious right… not so much.
    When people of faith oppose those positions based on their beliefs you want to have the sh*t beat out of them.

    This POS should have never been allowed back on the street. It was a liberal attitude by a conservative Christian who allowed it to happen. If some liberal governor released him on the same grounds we wouldn’t have heard a peep out of you. (Barring a tragedy again like now).

    Where are the left’s protestations to Governor Rendell to carry out the execution of Mumia? He’s not acting out of religious belief.

    I’m a Christian and I would have never allowed it. But the NORMAL PLATFORM of the left is that they hate cops, support cop killers, believe every criminal is wrongly accused or imprisoned and should be given all sorts of rights and clemency.

    Maybe it’s time you get some consistency in your positions instead of supporting the left then lamenting the consequences of their agenda even if it was a conservative who made the call to release him.

    Huckabee’s decision was based on religious belief more closely associated with the ridiculous beliefs of the left than the platform of the right.

    One thing I learned was to write clearly (even though I sometimes don’t). After the Wyatt’s explanation I take back the GFY.

    Let’s concentrate on the f-ing s-head who did the deed.

  31. Wyatt Earp Says:
    November 30th, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    Randal – As was my point in my previous comment. If you guys want to go back and forth about the stupidity of Huckabee’s commutation – and that is what it is: stupidity – then do it somewhere else. Or at the very least, do it after this POS is captured.

    Lergnom – That I don’t know. Sorry.

    Captain – See the above comment. If Clinton did this as AK governor, it would also be stupid, but this is not the time to bicker over politics. Who gives a fuck? Four officers are dead and the man is still walking the Earth!!! Why the fuck do I have to keep repeating myself here?

    Mrs. Crankipants – I wonder if they serve lamb?

    LDIV – Exactly. Everyone can fight at the flagpole after dismissal later. Personally, this bickering about Huckabee is taking people off point, and it’s pissing me off.

    I have to agree with Raptor on this one, Wyatt. No capture involved. Rabid dogs don’t belong sitting in a comfortable jail cell, or a quick death 20 years down the road.

    This is just plain disgusting. To be sitting at a table quietly doing your job and some POS walks in and opens fire just makes me sick. This perp deserves one of those Columbian type getting hacked to death with machetes deaths. And how is it even remotely possible that he is out walking the streets. If you are given 95 years then you must have done some bad stuff and there is no way in hell you should be out in anything less than 60 years. This is what is wrong with this country. If you get 25 years in jail then you should serve 25 years. If we are only going to give people a tenth of their sentence then lets give them the 3 years to start with and stop all this crap.

    No trial, no whining lawyers, good job Seattle PD. I just read that Huckabee is trying to deflect it by saying he reduced the 108 years to 47. WTF? then he should have been 67 before he got out, but he was only 37 and he has been out for 5 years. This is madness.

  41. CaptainAmerica Says:
    December 1st, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    The brave hero cop that wasted this scumbag will fare better then the Navy Seals who apprehended that terrorists. They will end up on trial. Let this be a lesson to the SEALS: In the future dead terrorists save taxpayers money, spare the families a trial and tell no tales. Good job to Seattle’s finest.
