This incident was a sad quadruple tragedy. An officer dead, two badly hurt, and a man killed. The boy had just been released from prison a few days earlier after serving less than a year. He had pushed a store clerk aside and robbed the cash register. This was just one crime in a long list of crimes he had committed since childhood. Then as now there were a lot of newspapers with articles about our too lax parole system.
