    LEO's have a bad habit of sitting in dark empty parking lots late at night with the dome light on doing reports inside their patrol cars. I always thought they were sitting ducks like that, with their attention diverted. One night a female deputy was doing just that in the corner of a dark store parking lot about 2 am and got sniped in the town I lived. That was about 23 years ago. I know it's been addressed heavily in officer survival seminars since then, yet I still see LEO's doing that from time to time.

    It's one thing to be in a dark parking lot observing traffic flow and watching out for suspicious activity, but I still see them occasionally with the dome light on and their head down obviously writing reports.

    This incident is a sad deal as he was merely sitting at a traffic light. That is pretty heinous, man.

    Prayers go out for the man's family, friends and fellow officers. May he rest in peace.

    NO good FTO would let a trainee write reports with the dome light on. You use a flashlight down in your lap. Not perfect, but a damn sight better than a dome light.

    Very bad news, and only indicates how our society has deteriorated. May this LEO R.I.P., and his family and cohorts find comfort through prayer.

    WE had lights on a swivel mount that we used for report writing,and even then about every few seconds I would check 360,tapping your brake lights can light up your rear when your eyes are accustomed to the night.I think it's about time we brought back firing squads,whoever murdered this Deputy needs to be lined up and shot

    I am very sad that this occurred and my prayers go out to the family. I hope these perps get sent to the lethal injection or better firing squad.

    I hope this is not the beginning of something like what is happening in northern Mexico.

    R.I.P. SGT. Vann, may God give grace and comfort to family and friends.

    Clearly, men with no honor.

    RIP to the deputy.

    I fear this is only the start, the Mexican drug gangs are pushing north and are looking to intimidate everyone, including law enforcement.

    I think that the Feds think that if they keep denying it that it ain't so,when you have gangs like the Texas Syndicate,La Familia,and several other Mexican Prison gangs that are involved in the drug trade and are about as cold blooded as the Mexican Cartels then I'm really afraid of what is in store for LEO's,the Gang situation should have never been allowed to explode the way it has,the only way to stop a buncha cockroaches is keep exterminating them until there are none left or the few that are remaining are too sacared to come out.By the time civilization wakes up it will be overshadowed by barbarians .

    Gang are just one of the major problems that could really add to the down fall of our country.

    IMHO we are on the road, but not as far down it as Mexico, of lawlessness and butchery.

    God bless the Thin Blue Line of dedicated men and women who ware the badge and stand to enforce the RULE OF LAW.
