Florida Officer Killed
- A police officer in Tarpon Springs, Florida, was shot and killed early Sunday, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.
A suspect is in custody.
The fatal shooting occurred in a residential area in the predawn hours, said Cecilia Barreda from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
The slain officer, Charles Kondek, was a 17-year veteran of the Tarpon Springs Police Department.
Kondek, 45, was a New York City police officer for five years before moving to Florida, the sheriff's office said.
But don't worry - the killer apologized already, so it's all good by liberal standards. Anything can be forgiven if you just apologize - except being white, republican, religious, or an agent of the law.
