    Judge stabbed, deputy shot at Washington state courthouse - Yahoo! News

    The gunman, described as relatively well dressed and carrying a briefcase, confronted the deputy inside the main entrance of the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano, County Undersheriff Rick Scott told a news conference.

    The suspect stabbed the deputy, then grabbed her gun and shot her, Scott said.

    The judge, who saw the commotion from the third floor of the courthouse and ran down to intervene, was stabbed in the neck and torso during the altercation, Scott said.

    Both Superior Court Judge Dave Edwards and Deputy Polly Davin were taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital in nearby Aberdeen, where they were listed in satisfactory condition, spokesman David Quigg said.

    One problem with metal detectors in entry ways the Officers are well within the 21 foot rule if the machine beeps,It's very possible the Perp was trying to get inside to Stab somebody else but the Deputy stood in his way.This is a good reason to have 2 Officers working the machine,one needs to be back far enough to be able to backup the Deputy doing the searches

    From article,,,,,

    The lawsuit said that over the past two years, attorneys were physically assaulted at court, a defendant charged at a judge and a man came to the courthouse armed with a knife.

    "Anyone can enter the courthouse carrying weapons," the lawsuit said of the courthouse.

    Scott said the courthouse lacks metal detectors.

    "We just had a discussion about courthouse security less than a week ago," Scott said. "The need for that is certainly illustrated by what happened here today."

    AND,,,,

    The courthouse assault came two days after a gunman fired a flurry of shots into the air and then traded gunfire with police outside a courthouse in Oklahoma on Wednesday, wounding a sheriff's deputy and a bystander, Tulsa authorities said.

    It also followed a spate of recent high profile gun violence including a shooting at a psychiatric institute in Pittsburgh on Thursday in which a gunman shot dead one person before he was killed, and a shooting last week at an Ohio school in which three students died.


    My Conclusion;

    The glue that holds the fabric we call society, is coming undone.
    Keep your powder dry, and the firearms locked and loaded.
    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
