No good deed goes unpunished

Earlier this week, I wrote about Manchester Police Officer Michael Briggs, shot and killed in the line of duty. The accused cop-killer, Michael K. “Stix” Addison, is currently under arrest in Massachusetts and awaiting extradition.

It turns out that Mr. Addison has a rather interesting history with the Manchester police.

In March of 2003, Mr. Addison was shot while in his Manchester apartment. Police responded and gave him first aid. The first officer on the scene was none other than Michael Briggs — the man Addison is now accused of killing.

And in another New Hampshire news update, Tuesday was the funeral for Corporal Nicholas Arvanitis of Salem, NH, killed in Iraq while serving with the 82nd Airborne. The anti-gay publicity whores of the Westboro Baptist Church had announced they would show up and picket, saying that every soldier killed in Iraq was God’s punishment on the United States for not locking up and killing all gays.

Well, on Tuesday the services were held. The Patriot Guard Riders, bikers who attend those funerals to keep the jerks away and honor the fallen, were there.

And there was not a single Westboro asshole to be seen.

Congrats!
