I have a question for you, Mr. Anonymous:

If they did shoot each other, would you want to know about that at this point?

Sure.

Why don't you call the BCA and get a copy of the report. It is public information you know. <wink>

I don't want the BCA report. I want the truth about whether it was Devon Dockery or Julie Olson that shot Officer Crittenden.

LOL...You are just another conspiracy theorist who when faced with overwhelming evidence (and I can GAURANTEE you that it is there at the BCA if you just take the time to look into it... <wink>) you still look for any smidge of doubt to justify your skewed thinking.

Do you have a link to it?

If not, what number do I call to have them email it to me so I can post it?

Or are you just blowing smoke here?

There is no indication that anything occurred other than what has been reported. Why do you insist on trying to sully the reputation of either officer? Are you some punk that was arrested by one of them? That's the only reason I can think of that you continually make up crap about this unfortunate incident. Really, what makes you think something happened other than what Mr. Rosario wrote in his column?

MN Observer you are wrong!

The TRUTH is an appropriate response to the question no matter what it is.

I have no doubt Rick was shot/only shot as reported, by the perp.

IF by some change Olson mistakenly shot Rick she would NOT be interested in going back to work. Having seen results of a good PD involved shooting Olson would NOT be able to handle the pressure from inside herself and would change professions IF she knew she shot Rick.

Maybe that is true. Then again, maybe that is why she missed the funeral.

The best way to determine exactly who shot whom would be to study the guns, the bullets, the wounds and the hands of the people who allegedly fired weapons. All the information we have so far is based on Officer Olson's testimony. She is the only living eye witness. If her report can be corroborated by physical evidence then it means she is telling the truth.
