I hate to burst anyone's bubble but Sgt Futrell did not die in the line of duty, but he died 150+ miles away from Charlotte as Pilot in Command of a plane that he neglected to fuel to the level that the mission required. And the mission was to find struggling folks growing pot and their land, direct law enforcement to this land... etc

In the seargent's lust/zeal to remove pot growers from the arms of their spouses and kids, he forgot to fuel his plane. Karma is a female dog. Lots of folks were giggling down east that day.
but not me

3:30 ESAD

post what every pithy ESADs you'd like 5:53, but 3:30 is right. Creative Loafing was all over it at the time. Get a clue- Most motors sputter and die when they have no fuel to burn. In a related matter- most flash grenades explode in your hands/trunk if the instructions on said ordinance are not followed to the letter.

It is not rocket surgery officers, carry on.

Hey guys both dudes died, while working to enforce the law. Simply doing their job, they didn't come home, a husband, father and friend was lost.

Its doesn't matter if it was their fault or not.

Flying a plane or loading a flash bang shouldn't cost you your life but its the price that some pay the keep the rest of us safe.

8:50- "flying a plane around 150 miles from your juristiction looking for weed farmers helps keep us safe" You sound like a wide eyed 4th grader at a DARE show.

Here is what happened- Cop who is trying to log flight hours without paying for them, sees a way to do so- By flying VFR for the CAP looking for weed farmers. And guess what he paid nothing for the flight time. And his fuel was paid for as well. Except he forgot to fuel the 172- That he died in the line of duty is total BS. If he had stayed home, tended to his own busness, and paid for his own flight time, he would be alive today. It is what it is

Anon 1:22, you are right. It makes me sad.

Don't worry though, I'll cheer up right after I go lock up another dope smoker. Or maybe 2?
