Shocking twist in Utah cop murder-suicide...

Officer Family Killed

By Brady McCombs

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah police officer used his service weapon when he killed his wife, two children and his mother-in-law before turning the gun on himself in January, authorities said Monday.

An investigation completed by Spanish Fork City Police was unable to determine Lindon police officer Joshua Boren's exact motive, Lt. Matt Johnson said. But investigators did learn Boren, 34, and his wife were having marital problems.

Toxicology reports from the autopsy show Boren had no drugs or alcohol in his system, and he had no history of violence or mental illness, Johnson said.

Rest of story here.


The shocking twist?  He used his service weapon.

Would it have been less shocking if had beaten everyone to death with a ball bat and then hung himself?

Robert... I think what makes the action of this young man shocking (according to the article)is the fact that many Liberals want guns taken away from everyone but the police. The police are the "only ones" who can be trusted to have firearms. Here we have a police officer who killed his family with his duty weapon. Irony.
