Which, I guess, is understandable in most cases, but not this one.

    For a 20yo to be allowed to bypass many regulations and requirements involved with being allowed to carry a handgun just because he was appointed to an LE position...that's not good. His age should have been a huge factor - I might be wrong, but I wouldn't be comfortable with anyone in their mid to early 20s carrying a gun just because their jobs say they can. I want to be assured that they're getting as much training and clearance as the average citizen, if not more.
    Fox just had a reporter on the scene and he said a Pastor that knew Tyler Peterson well, said that TP had just completed SWAT TEAM training. So he had to be an excellent shooter.

    Those poor young people never stood a chance.

    Wow, that's awful. While there have been instances in the past that have made me believe SWAT team members haven't received the best training, it's definitely better than what typical LE and "normal" citizens have. What poor kids...

    This just gets me so angry. Even if you think you are protecting your children from danger, you just never know what one of their friends or acquaintances might do.

    This has to be so difficult for all the families. I wonder if his family will make a statement?

    Your so correct Taximom.....
    I am so glad I have my kids all raised. With my Grandkids getting to be a age where they want to psend time with friends you just never know when you could get a phone call & your life can be changed forever.

    These kids were just at friends house, not bothering a soul. All gunned down for no reason! To think a Swat Team member could / would do this is unthinkable.

    One of the victims of Sunday's shooting was 14-year-old Lindsey Stahl, her mother said.

    did the 7th victim die? I just saw a headline "7 shot dead..."
    Oh never mind ... they were counting the shooter as one of the dead

    Apprently he had someone held hostage when he was shot. I wonder who that poor person was?

    I don't care for the idea of a 20 yr. old being a deputy sheriff. While there certainly are exceptions, most 20 yr. olds don't have their life together yet. Cripes! The kid couldn't even legally drink! I'll bet heads will roll and lawsuits will follow.

    One big question is what training and evaluation did recruits need to meet to become a deputy? Maybe in those small towns there isn't a lot of potential recruits from which to choose.

    Lastnight they stated he held 6 hostages before he was shot!

    Peterson's father, Steve Peterson, said that the family planned to draft a statement to the public, but declined Monday to talk in detail. Nothing his family said about him now would be believable to most people, he said.
    "It is very trying," he said.

    and
    The shooting raised questions among residents about whether Peterson had met requirements to become a law enforcement officer. David Franz, who is married to Marci Franz, said it was hard to accept that someone in law enforcement was the gunman.
    "The first statement we said to each other was, 'How did he get through the system?'" Franz said.

    The person who was shot and released from the hospital was another officer. Apparently, before Peterson was killed, there were gunshots exchanged between him and his LE comrades.

    However, there is still another person from the party who is still hospitalized in critical condition.

    I'm not dissing Petersons parents here. The comments people make under stress are odd sometimes.
