This isn't much of a dairy...but what the hell is going on with all these killings of elected lawmen?

BREAKING: Mingo County sheriff shot and killed
by From staff reports

Sheriff Eugene Crum was shot near the Mingo County Courthouse Wednesday afternoon.

The recently elected Mingo County sheriff has been shot and killed near the courthouse Wednesday.

A 911 dispatcher confirmed that Sheriff Eugene Crum was shot on Harvey Street near the county courthouse. Crum had just taken office in January.

The Daily Mail has learned that Crum died from his injuries.

The attack on Crum comes after a series of high-profile attacks on law-enforcement officials across the United States, including the doorstep slaying of Colorado's prisons chief and the slayings of two Kaufman County, Texas, prosecutors.
WILLIAMSON, W. VA. — A sheriff known for cracking down on the drug trade in southern West Virginia's coalfields was fatally shot Wednesday in the spot where he usually parked his car for lunch, a state official said, and a suspect was in custody.

Delegate Harry Keith White, who campaigned with Crum last year, said his friend was shot to death in the same place where he parked his car most days to eat lunch, near the site of a former pharmacy known for illegally distributing. Crum led a drug task force and an initiative called Operation Zero Tolerance, making good on a campaign pledge, White said.

It's beginning to look like the drug cartels are bringing their way of "doing business" to the USA.  Jesus.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
