    Sorry to hear that two police officers were killed. Alaska is a rough environment and alcohol makes things much worse in many of the villages.
    Prayers sent for all of the families involved.

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska A man accused of killing two police officers in a small Alaska village surrendered to authorities Monday.

    John Marvin Jr. turned himself in shortly before 10 a.m., according to a local official in the southeast Alaska village of Hoonah.

    AK is a tough place to be a LEO. A LOT of alcohol abuse there. "Cabin fever." Very remote. It's a good place to hide out for those who have "escaped" form the lower 48.

    I saw episodes of Alaska State Troopers,they have a tough Job and backup is hours away in some cases,It sounds like the ambusher probably had a grudge against Cops that interfered with his lifestyle,Death by hanging upon conviction comes to mind

    And this was 2 of the 3 officers that that villiage of 800 has.... 2/3 of the force. Suspect surrendered today after a 24 hours standoff. Federal officers, Alaska State Troopers, members of several close local PD's all showed up. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police offered troops as well.

    I read in another article that one of the officers mother was visiting him from Florida and was in the patrol car on a ride along and was the one who called for help. How horrific to see her son and partner shot. :(

    This hit home for me. I am from Skagway, Alaska, another small community in Southeastern Alaska, with a small population of around 900. Hoonah is one of the small communities we played against in high school sports, so I've been there a number of times. My wife's Uncle was a pastor in Hoonah for a number of years as well. I have a lot of respect for police officers in a small town. I don't think people realize the amount of scrutiny they subject themselves to where the population is so small. There isn't much that you do that goes unnoticed, and it is very easy to get a few people upset over being arrested for public intoxication, or getting pulled over for a taillight infraction. News travels fast in small towns, and that can bruise an ego fast...especially an ego that can be fed by alcohol, as you all have already posted, is a common theme in small Alaskan communities.

    I didn't know the officer's, but one of my best friends was an officer in Skagway, and retired as the Chief of Police in Skagway. I know the fear his wife faced, and in fact she made a post on Facebook that I read yesterday, that this was her greatest fear. My heart goes out to the families of the officers, and to the townspeople of Hoonah. This is a tragedy that will haunt them for many years to come.

    This Sucks.

    This murderer needs to be sentenced to death. Maybe in the future, it may stop and cause someone to think about their actions.

    Here is a photo of the two brave fallen patrolmen.

    And a link to the article.(Its very short.)http://www.petoskeynews.com/national...cc4c03286.html

    To the Officers:
