Wisconsin cop shot dead

There are 25 comments on the Chicago Tribune story from May 21, 2007, titled Wisconsin cop shot dead. In it, Chicago Tribune reports that:

“He was probably our most decorated deputy; you never heard any complaints about him”

A decorated Kenosha County sheriff's deputy was fatally shot late Wednesday during a routine traffic stop, and investigators are questioning a man with so many aliases that they aren't entirely sure of his real name, the sheriff said Thursday.

Deputy Frank Fabiano Jr., 48, tried to pull over a 1995 Chevrolet mini-van about 11:30 p.m. The driver drove away into a subdivision, stopping when he reached the end of a cul-de-sac in Somers, just outside Kenosha.

Both men got out of their vehicles, and the driver of the van pulled out a handgun and shot Fabiano once in the head, Sheriff David Beth said at a briefing in Kenosha. It is not known whether the deputy drew his gun, Beth said. Read more

Calling the Bell incident murder is as despicable as it is un-american. You are not the judge. We are all innocent until proven guilty. Unless you want to take that right away from everyone too. It's over, learn from it or shut up.

That is purely your opinion and what i side is mine. Telling someone how and what they are able to think is un-American. You talk about being un-American and taking away of rights, ever hear of the right to free speech? I guess that one dont count. We have learned from it, never trust the police.
