When you cause the ruination

When you cause the ruination of law abiding men who have nothing left to lose, they do things like this for revenge. It's one way to send a message to our captors.

My first reaction..

This was a positive strike against the Prison Industrial Complex...My second thought was Maybe this guy was against the corruption in the CO prison system, so he got taken out...My third thought is anyone who wants to be part of the Prison Industrial Complex probably got a dose of Karma...I don't like the thought of death, but SOMETHING has to change, and sooner than later...The BS war on drugs is how I found Dr. Paul...Prisons are the weapons of their war machine...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

Another Motive

A family member of someone incarcerated and abused simply exacting justice on their own.

Corrections officers

make a LOT of enemies. The list of people who had a motive to do this is probably a mile long. Perhaps 80% of what they do is a violation of rights under color of law.

Note to public servants: Any time you violate someone's rights isn't it logical to assume you could be risking your life? Violation after violation when someone finally blows their top they pass it off as "some madman" with obviously no driving motive to commit such heinous acts...

When public servants commit murder - they do it in the "line of duty."

Is This A Good Thing or A Bad Thing?



Killing people is not a good

Killing people is not a good thing.

Agreed. Violence and death

Agreed. Violence and death are never the best option (not to say it isn't the only option in some circumstances).

Simple Facts and Plain Arguments
A common sense take on politics and current events.


bad thing.... death is not

bad thing.... death is not the best option

they just announced they are looking for a car, "possibly"

first thought was prison

first thought was prison chief= corruption, next story!

Sounds like reasonable logic

Let me try that kind of logic.

George Bush was a male. Therefore all males are war criminals.

not what i said ass kisser!

not what i said ass kisser! I clearly said first thought but after i think about it logically, yes probably corruption involved.

Wow, ok so I am downvoted and

Wow, ok so I am downvoted and an "ass kisser" for pointing out the irrefutable fact that just because most police chiefs are corrupt doesn't mean all of them are. Great community around here.

The state cant protect their own law enforcers and prison chiefs

How are they going to protect you?

It is not their job, the 2nd amendment your job.

Whether they have and keep all the prisoners in jail or have them all loose on the street it is still your right to protect yourself and you have no obligations to rely on their false security measures.


"How are they going to

"How are they going to protect you?"

Carefull, they'll see that as permission for them to do whatever the hell they want

You would think high profile

You would think high profile people like him have security cameras at their homes.

I wonder if that was the point the killer was trying to make.

This is going to b interesting.

The problem is the editors

We will soon hear like a newscast in V for Vendetta that it was a mentally unstable tea party member with an AR15 and 30 round clip. They will also not apprehend but kill this individual stating that he threatened officers.....case closed.

Striking at the henchmen of the system

may have serious consquences.

Nobody gets to a position like this without having kissed a lot of "Annointed Ass". They will stop at nothing when someone like this is hit.

The day may not be far off when such an action will be met with
"mass arrests first, questions later."

I saw that this morning on CNN

I wondered if it was an Ex-prisoner or friend/family member of prisoner.
They didn't call him "warden". Is it the same thing? If not, maybe this guy was in a position to physically abuse/torture inmates.

The problem is

If we don't get the story early on and the script writers converge on the events surrounding his murder, we will never know the true story. Listen for early reports, they are usually the most emotional and most telling.
