Utah Man Apparently Distraught Over Brother's Redeployment to Iraq Shot
Utah Man Apparently Distraught Over Brother's Redeployment to Iraq Shot After Brandishing Gun

http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGA4NM8N7TD.html

RIVERTON, Utah (AP) - A Utah National Guardsman, apparently distraught that his brother was being redeployed to Iraq, was shot and killed early Sunday morning after threatening his family and brandishing a shotgun at deputies, authorities said.


Chad Thompson, 32, whose family said he had been drinking, was upset after learning that his brother's tour of duty was being extended, according to Sgt. Rosie Rivera, a spokeswoman for the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Thompson, a Guardsman for more than a decade, was a full-time supply staff sergeant stationed at Camp William in Riverton.

Thompson's mother-in-law called authorities just before 2 a.m. Sunday, saying her son-in-law was en route to the family residence "on a rampage" and "irate with everyone," Rivera said.

1. This administration is responsible for the pain and horror that each
one of the families goes thru. I point my finger at the Bush admin for all of this.

8. I was reading Stars & Stripes
The outrage among military families over Rumsfeld cancelling their return is deep and wide.

Bush is losing the military vote!

I feel bad for this family, they seem pitiful. :-(
