What a lovely little story....a ex cop/ex CO with known mental issues sitting up top of a cache of 40 legally guns (give or take a few) and countless rounds of ammo. A ticking time bomb if ever there was one. The armed nutjobs who are also lawmen or ex lawmen; or who are CO's or ex CO's are potentially the most dangerous of all our nation's nutjobs...
I have to wonder if the Mass State Police didn't attempt to shoot to kill in this case because this nutjob is an ex cop. We have all read stories recently of Mass Cops, including State Cops, shooting to kill when a motorist drives straight towards them. Again, did this nutjob receive a watered down taste of the law simply because he is an ex lawman? I don't doubt it for a minute!
