My best thoughts go out to the family, and to his fellow troopers. Be safe.

Is this the guy? The record shows a different age, but one of the aliases fits and his address is Ormond Beach: http://www.dc.state.fl.us/InmateReleases/deta...

Can anyone explain why the charges are first-degree murder, vs. capital murder?

Oh, and when Edwardo Wong II is found guilty, fry the bastard.

Capital murder is murder of a Law Enforcement Officer, Fireman etc

I want to see the death penalty on the table for this one. Senseless.

And yes, XD Fan, my sympathies go out to family of this victim and to all his friends and fellow troopers.

Some people actually DO care about what happens after an Officer is fallen. Bless him.

Thanks for locating this information. It gives us more insight into what a criminal mind he has. Looks like his rap sheet just got longer. Given his history, he should have never been free to commit this crime.

Those comments were mine -- I forgot to log in. That was my understanding, Transplanted, about the definition/scope of capital murder. Seems it would apply here. The AC-T is reporting Wong is being held on first-degree murder charges.

BTW- I copied your avatar, it seems appropriate now.

Just read the article. Sorry to hear about this senseless act. It looks like they caught him less than 1/2 mile from my house. Didn't hear a thing.

Not to create a new thread, but.... Wheather you like or dislike the middle east, the crimminals there FEAR punishment. Punishment fits the crime and is swift. We in the US are WAY too lenient on crimminals all the way from petty theft to murder.

Absolutely copy it .......yes it is appropriate and out of respect for a fallen officer...

I wish as many that can, copy and set their own avatar to the banded shield out of respect and to show unity

I was blown away at 1:30 this morning when I got the call that one of my really close friends was killed. I agree with all of you that Wong should fry!!! I spoke with Shawn yesterday before he went into work and he was just so excited about his newborn! How dare that SOB take him away from his friends and family! I hope and pray he gets the death penalty! Please keep his beautiful wife in your prayers.
