Wow, truly sad... RIPThere is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

That certainly sounds like an unusual way to go. But I think it illustrates how a line of duty death can take many forms, everything we do on the inside or the outside can be dangerous. My thoughts are with his family and department, RIP.
