Seattle Officer Slain

If you live in Seattle, you have heard the news of policeman Timothy Brenton being murdered on Halloween night. (You can read about it the Seattle Times.)

In a random, ruthless, drive-by shooting the 39-year old officer was killed and the student officer who was with him was wounded.

This kind of horrible violence is completely senseless, and has no place in a civilized society.

And in fact it is relatively rare in Seattle – the last time a police officer was shot in the line of duty was in 1994.

Timothy Brenton was a dedicated husband and father of two, and today our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
