    They have a suspect.

    Police described the suspect as a male with a dark complexion, about 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall, wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts and driving a red or maroon pickup-style truck with an extended cab. Authorities did not say what race they believe him to be.

    Here is hoping that he will end up in Huntsville on Death Row soon!

        This was an unprovoked execution, a terrible day for all Police Officers, and our nation.
        I hope the shooter dies a painful slow death.
        Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

          I don't know what it will take to end this sort of thing but I know all the anti-police rhetoric coming from all over, including the government, isn't helping.

            Criticizing murders by police and police brutality is not the cause of this. When a polceman commits a crime or breaks a rule they too should he punished and criticized. Stifling free speech is not the answer to this problem.

            This murderer committed a heinous and deplorable act. He should be arrested and punished for it to the full extent of the law.

              Good points but unfortunately it doesn't deal with the emotional issues involved. Without strong support from the community our law enforcement officers will become more of an occupying military force than they already are. These kind of incidents only increase the isolation and paranoia that make officer see everyone as a criminal. Why would any police officer want to serve and protect a community that is not committed to reducing crime.

              The rhetoric out of Washington is encouraging an atmosphere of mistrust of police. Almost all of that rhetoric has focused on the police and none on the war zone like communities the police are forced to work in. In a war zone your priority is to protect yourself and your allies. Everyone else is a potential hostile or collateral damage.

                I never said anything about stifling speech. I said that what they're saying is wrong and irresponsible, not that they shouldn't be allowed to say it. Individual officers who break the law should be punished but they should be innocent until proven guilty and the entire organization to which they belong should not be targeted. The government needs to stand behind the police, not condemn them and foster mistrust between them and the people. The alternative is what wolf said either a police state or anarchy, depending on who wins.

                  Exactly the way they think. (Then you wonder why they strike first and ask questions later.)

                    Arrested and Charged with Capital Murder:

                    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/m...t-gas-station/

                    Update, 5:36 p.m.: Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said in a news conference Saturday evening that Shannon J. Miles, 30, was charged Saturday in the fatal shooting of a deputy at a suburban Houston gas station on Friday night.

                    Hickman said Miles has been charged with capital murder in the killing of Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, who was shot execution-style at a suburban Houston gas station while filling up his patrol car.
                    Swift arrest, good for the Sheriff's department.

                    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
                    Of cabbages—and kings—
                    And why the sea is boiling hot—
                    And whether pigs have wings.”

                      Well said!

                      The photo of Holder embracing Sharpton and Jackson says it all.

                      I'm thinking Deputy Goforth would still be alive if his skin was a different color.

                        If it turns out that this was racially motivated, or some sort of retaliatory killing for the other shootings that have happened, I wonder what Obama will say about it. Will he send representatives from the White House like he did for Mike Brown's funeral? I'm curious to see how he'll respond when the racism is going the other way.

                            Do you really have to ask what the Black House reaction is going to be?
