This goes back further then just 2007. This goes back to his days in the Navy. There is a lot more to this story then just this. Bottom line here is that if you kill a cop or a cop's family, you are going to end up dead. It's how every law enforcement agency in this country works. It doesn't matter if you are in LA or NY. I will tell you this, here in New Mexico, if you kill a cop, you may as well forget about it. You are going to wind up dead and there is nothing at all that anybody can do about it. Right, wrong? Doesn't really matter. This is how it is and that's not going to change. There is a reason people don't go after families, not even organized crime. The lesson here is don't do what this person did unless your goal is to be dead. That's just how it works.
