Every time a law enforcement officer pulls over a vehicle, he takes a risk. Yesterday, a 23 year old Highway Patrol Officer from Montana was fatally shot by a man he had pulled over on rural road near Three Forks, MT. The manhunt was finally ended when the asshole was found dead in his truck 35 miles from where he killed Trooper DeLaittre, but the life he took first is one that should be remembered. Barely two years on the Patrol, let me repeat; he was only 23 years old.
It was a senseless act of savage violence.
RIP, David DeLaittre
