The suspect should have been patted down prior to coming into the office and the detectives weapon should have been locked up. That is precisely why those types of policies exist. However, that does not make this event any less tragic for this officer and his family. It seems as though everyone is Monday morning quartbacking a tragedy, but we must heed the lessons learned from the mistakes of others in order to develope policies and strategies that ultimately protect officers lives. I wish for a successful prosecution that will hopefully put a needle in this perps arm.
