    BAD: Georgia state trooper dies at traffic stop

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/12/28/...ex.html?hpt=T2http://<object width="416" height="3...mbed></object>

    Authorities are investigating the death of a Georgia state trooper late Monday after he was shot following a traffic stop in northwest Atlanta, an agency spokesman said.

    A suspect has been arrested, said spokesman Gordy Wright.

    Trooper Chadwick LeCroy, 38, who was shot twice in the face, died while being transported to a local trauma unit, Wright said.

    The suspect escaped in the trooper's patrol car, which was found abandoned about half a mile away. The suspect was taken into custody with help from the Cobb County Police.

    LeCroy, of Marietta, is survived by his wife and two sons, ages 8 and 21. He became a trooper in August 2008.

    The killing is being investigated by the Georgia State Patrol, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Atlanta Police and Cobb County Police.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    May Trooper LeCroy R.I.P., his family is added to my DC list.
    May the dirtbag who shot him pay a heavy price.

    Rest in everlasting Peace Trooper LeCroy.

    The perp has a very long rap sheet. What in hades was this scumbag was doing outside of prison after being convicted of several felonies?

    http://savannahnow.com/latest-news/2...fter-car-chase

    Authorities charged Gregory Favors, a 30-year-old Atlanta man who has been arrested 19 times and convicted of several felonies, with LeCroy's murder, Keenan said. He said authorities are working closely with prosecutors to build the case against Favors.

    19 arrests and "several felonies"...And gun owners are under attack by the public???!!!??? Seems to me the energy ought to be directed at keeping trash like that off the street.

    God Speed Trooper LeCroy. God bless your family!
    Better to have and to hold, than to leave in the nightstand.....

    I'm all for the 3 strike law,you commit 3 felonies and you strike out,not being housed and fed by society,but put to death since you have shown you can't live by societys rules
