A police sergeant in a custody suite was shot dead
yesterday by a suspect in handcuffs, his hands were
behind his back.

Somehow he smuggled a gun into the booking place!

We don't have shooting very much here, so this is very
sad and the arresting officer must feel sick about it as
he didn't search the man properly.

One of the things that keeps coming up over and over is the police making gross mistakes. I worked in a psychiatric hospital. It gave me the appreciation of the full range of human emotions, that the police encounter on a daily basis. It's not an easy job. But it keeps coming back to a poorly trained police force without adequate supervision. OJT is totally insufficient today. We need well educated police professionals, paid well, and with competent supervision.
