The stupidity and lack of mental stability of the few ruin everything for the many law abiding citizens

This is one time that I'm going to ask that we don't get in a political argument in the face of tragedy.

This morning, I had seen this blip on the CNN news ticker, and thought "could it be?" but then thought, nah - what are the odds??? And I went about my business, going to the park with the kids, etc.

I received a call about 30 mins after the names were released earlier today from another mutual friend up in Pittsburgh. I was just FLOORED, to put this mildly.

Paul Sciullo was just one of the three killed in Pittsburgh, but these were the first three cops killed in the line of duty in Pittsburgh since 1996. Despite what people say about Pittsburgh, it is a city that prides itself for being safe. I was always able to walk about with my kids, and feel safe.

Paul was someone I hired at Mellon Financial back in 2000, and he was an excellent employee. He became a friend. Someone that I still talked to long after. He was Italian to the core, loved his mother, and lived two houses down from her. When he was laid off, he made a decision to serve. It was going to be the Army or the police force. His mother is one of the ones that talked him out of the Army. The first-generation immigrant did not want to lose her son to war. But he chose the police force.

I received an email from him not long after he passed basic training, and he was so proud, but had "not seen any action yet"... About 3-4 weeks ago, he had said that he was never happier. "This was the best decision I ever made," he said. He was now seeing action, working some of the more shady areas of town, and not always being dispatched with someone else by his side. Asked if he was ever scared, his reply was always "nah, not really".

He was a good person, a genuine and caring friend, and is going to be greatly missed by all of us that knew him.

I was just out tonight watching the Tarheel-Nova game with Mush somewhere, and the news had cut in with the story. Paul had been reduced to a 3-second news soundbite. And it upset me. All I could think was - his poor mother. She has lost her son. And he is only worth 3 seconds now.

So I ask, just this once, can we just save the debate? My friend got shot in the head defending people. This guy had a bullet-proof vest, a 22-caliber rifle, and an AK-47, and he was ready to ambush the 5 cops that showed up on his "domestic" call. I don't really care right now who's right or who's wrong.

Paul was 37. He didn't yet have time for the wife and kids to enter his days - he was too busy serving people like us.

I just miss my friend. Godspeed.

If everyone had guns, obviously this would have never happened.

Because they are authority figures, we sometimes dehumanize cops. But for every jerk in blue, there are many more out there like your friend, just making an honest living doing the things most of us wouldn't or couldn't do. I'm very sorry about your loss.

He's not going to ban guns...He's going to ban ammo.

Sorry Redwing for your lose. But we should be able to debate this at alot of stupid rumors are being floated around about banning ammo.

people with guns in their home are 3 times more likely to be killed by a gun, and 5 times more likely to commit suicide. hard to consider someone responsible who puts their children in that situation.

And people who drive a car are more likely to die in an auto crash than those that take the bus. Damned irresponsible car owners.
