RIP NYPD Sgt Paul Tuozzolo

NYPD Sergeant Tuozzolo was killed in the Bronx after confronting a domestic break-in suspect with a long history of criminal trouble:
Rosales' 50-year-old mother-in-law had called 911 when the man, who had 17 prior arrests in Suffolk County, forced his way into the apartment she shared with his estranged 29-year old wife and their 3-year-old son, minutes before the police chase ensued, O'Neill and sources said.
Sgt Kwo and a rookie, three days out of the academy, returned fire. Kwo was shot and wounded. The cop killer was killed.

Rest in Peace.

I'm growing weary of wearing a mourning band, Prof. I feel like my badge hasn't been uncovered in over a year. For all the negativity in the past few years about cops, Sgt Tuozzolo reminds us of why we do this lousy job.

When this happens, no one says, "never again." Everybody knows it will happen again.
