    attempted suicide by cop.

    Probably a dull butter knife.

    Seems like all cops wanna be on the Tactical Team and wear combat boots.

  • Think

    Oh, the Maine State Police are assisting. We have nothing to worry about then.
    Next up…the attorney general finds that the “officers” were justified in the use of deadly force. Shocker.

      so true never in the History of Maine has an officer Not been found justified.. I don’t know what happened but it makes me angry we never know what the AG’s finding was based on ..A rubber stamp I gather..

    The people of the State of Maine really do need to look into their local police departments to see their policies involving police being approached by “an individual suppected of carrying a posible weapon”. When police investigate their own, just remember who trained them to be this way in the first place….the State Police.
