    Bad: 2nd WV Trooper Shot Has Died

    The other WV State Trooper shot during a traffic stop on I-79 has died from his gunshot wounds.

    He was shot along with another Trooper who died at the scene. He had been in critical condition and on life support.

    This just escalates the tragedy. Prayers for all his family, friends and fellow Law Enforcement.

    Good Lord, the guy managed to shoot three cops and the tow truck driver while he was handcuffed?

    Prayers for both officers, their families and their co-workers. You have to do a proper search prior to putting anyone in the back of your vehicle, should not have been put back there with a gun.

    This guy should have been patted down like cookie dough.

    These guys must have got complacent, or the perp/suspect made them feel at ease somehow, and then got the drop on them.
    Run the arrested through the ringer before turning your back on them.

    Prayers and condolences to all the families involved in this tragedy.

    IIRC he was handcuffed in front,36 years ago I was trained to cuff them in the back for this very reason,and watch them during transport to make sure they didn't try to slip them under their butt and legs

    Cuff and search before doing anything else.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I wonder why would they handcuff this guy in the front, what are they teaching their officers over there?

    I was shocked to read that he was handcuffed in the front.
