While I appreciate that an independent team has been assigned to investigate what happened that night - I am tired of hearing about their only being "one victim". Brittany Tibbetts was also an innocent victim that night - the last I knew in our country - people are innocent until proven guilty - but Brittany will never get a chance to defend herself - will she? She and Cullen were no longer dating at the time of the shooting (she was worried about his state of mind and for his safety). She did not have to die that night, she was not like Cullen and had nothing to do with the dealth of Chief Maloney! I take offense to you referring to her as a "tortured sole" in your article above - you didn't know her... A little compassion for Brittany and her family would be much appreciated!!

You people do realize the "no knock" warrant included her name also? She was being investigated right along with Mutrie for drug dealing. Also, it has been released that she had 14,000 dollars in cash on her body. This was discovered by the medical examiner a couple days ago.
While I feel for her for being murdered, she was far from an angel as some want to portray her. Keep in mind that this all could been avoided if we as a society and a country would realize that prohibition ( the war on drugs) is a lost war we cannot and will not be able to win.

I say just legalize. We're not going to "win" the war on drugs, which is just a war on people.

exactly. Billions of dollars are funneled into the coffers of the police for this so-called "war". No one has the right to tell anyone what they can and cannot put into their bodies. This includes drugs, alcohol, nicotine, jewelry, ink (think tattoos), and many other things. If we keep moving in the direction we are heading towards, the book "1984" will become a reality.

So I am looking to move here. I am aghast that the police were so ill-prepared. Loss of any life is a tragedy and we all suffer.

I will await the findings of the investigation. Hopefully there is an unbiased and independent inquiry.

My only interaction with law enforcement in the state has been with Newmarket. The police officer could not have been more helpful.
