If you have ever wondered why police officers seem so untrusting of strangers this is a good example of why they cannot afford to trust everyone and must always expect the worst.
In Simpson County Mississippi a deputy sheriff was killed while escorting 22-year-old Steven Blackwell from a mental health services facility where he was on an involuntary hold when the suspect shot and killed him.
A Blue Alert has been issued for the 5’8″ 175 pound black male who was last seen wearing white boxer shorts. Mississippi authorities are asking the public to spread the word before Steven Blackwell kills again. Blackwell is believed to be armed and dangerous and you should not approach him… Call 911 immediately.
