Jake has more information on the shooting by the sheriff’s deputy in Virginia that caused a major interstate system to be shut down for the better part of a day. It turns out that the sheriff for which the deputy worked had information that he went rogue and was planning to kill his ex-wife. You’d think information like that would call for a regional alert that all law enforcement agencies should be on the look out for an out-of-jurisdiction officer and maybe even get some protection to the intended target.
Nope, not when it’s your staffer. Instead, the sheriff called one local department where the intended target lived (not where she was shot) and left a message for a supervisor. That’s right, he left a message. And this is while he ordered his own dispatch not to issue an alert to other agencies. Seriously, go read more at Jake’s place. That sheriff has some serious questions to answer from the victims and their families.
