In memoriam Detective James Allen

Providence RI lost a good cop this weekend, when Detective James Allen was shot while questioning a suspect.
He was shot with his own gun, which the suspect grabbed from him while being interviewed about a Saturday Morning attack.
This POG then jumped out a window from the 3rd floor and ran away from the Police Station. He was captured after a struggle about a quarter mile from the Station.
He was not handcuffed because he had not yet been arrested for the earlier attack on an elderly woman.
RI doesn't have a death penalty, which is too bad because this should be a case that ends in a hot shot on a stretcher.
