Massachusetts lawmaker pushes to reinstate death penalty after cop killing

  Massachusetts lawmaker pushes to reinstate death penalty after cop killing A Massachusetts lawmaker is reportedly pushing the state to reinstate the death penalty in response to the recent killing of a police officer gunned down while serving a warrant. State Rep Shaunna L. O’Connell, a Republican, said the state has a reputation of being soft on crime and that puts the public in danger.“We need to send a message to criminals that ‘you kill law enforcement officers, you are going to get the death penalty,” she said, according to Fox25Boston.

DALLAS -- Dallas officer Rogelio Santander, a three-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, was one of two officers shot Tuesday at a Home Depot. When the 27-year-old died Wednesday morning, he became the 24th officer killed this year in the line of duty.

A total of 24 officers have been gunned down in 2018 in the line of duty. At this time last year, 14 had died. The rising toll has some who wear the badge feeling like they're wearing a target.

In the case of the Dallas shooting, Santander was shot Tuesday afternoon when officers tried to arrest 29-year-old Armando Juarez on an outstanding warrant. Police say Juarez shot Santander, his partner Crystal Almeida, and a Home Depot loss prevention officer. Both of them are still in critical condition.

Dallas cop is 24 th officer killed this year in the line of duty . The two officers and the store loss-prevention officer underwent surgery for their injuries after the shooting in the north of the city.

"This is going to be a trying time for us, so we're just asking for your support during this time," said Chief Renee Hall.

After a frantic five-hour manhunt and a car chase through nearby neighborhoods, running over sidewalks and lawns, cops finally caught Juarez, who is now sitting in jail.

The shooting happened almost two years after five police officers were killed in an ambush-style attack in downtown Dallas.

On Tuesday night, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings questioned the community's relationship with his department.

"I am continued to be upset at the lack of respect of our police, in this city, in our country," Rawlings said.

He later explained his comments on Wednesday, saying "Whether It's the media or talking to young people, police are here to be disregarded day in and day out."

Rawlings says without that, it will be harder to recruit good officers like Santander and Almeida.

"I see these officers, two officers been on the force for three year, those are the type we need more and more."

A non-profit is raising money for the families of the two Dallas officers.
