They will catch this individual, I hope he resists when they go to arrest him. Prayers for the Trooper, his family, and his co-workers.

No doubt they will catch this individual. Another shining example where Capital Punishment should be legal!
I echo what Hiram25 posted.
Condolences to the family and brother and sister troopers.
"A Part of America Died"
Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.
The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.

Prayers for the survivors
But it doesn't belong here.
It could be worse!
Sorry to hear that another LEO was murdered just doing his job,RIP.
It sounds like the POS shot himself when Swat was Approaching his residence,no word on if he survived yet
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
--Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .
The 28-year-old suspect, Joshua Jearl Blake, had served time for drugs, assaulting his pregnant girlfriend, and kicking out the window of a police car, among other things, court records show. He was the registered owner of a pickup truck that Trooper Tony Radulescu pulled over just before he was shot to death early Thursday.
Investigators tracked Blake to a home on a dirt road near Port Orchard, about 20 miles west of Seattle across Puget Sound. As SWAT team officers approached, they heard a single gunshot. Blake was taken to Tacoma General Hospital, where he died later in the day.
According to the bold above, this POS sounded as though he needed to meet his maker anyway.
I bet half the LEO in the state of Washington would have liked to have helped him with that, instead of him off'ing himself like the true coward that he was.
R.I.P. Trooper Tony Radulescu
May the Good Lord watch over and keep your family, in the palm of his hand.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.
Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn
I saw this on FB this morning. Really sucks.
R.I.P. Trooper Tony Radulescu and my prayers to the family. This person needs to be caught and tried immediately.
