Terrible news out of Yarmouth today:
Source: A police officer on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, was shot in the head and killed Thursday while serving a warrant, and a suspect was in custody, local media reported. A Boston 25 reporter, citing a Yarmouth Police source, said the K-9 officer “died after being shot in the head” in Barnstable and the officer’s family had been notified.
Massachusetts State Police identified the deceased as Officer Sean Gannon in a tweet Thursday night and offered their condolences to the Yarmouth Police Department. With a heavy heart, our condolences go out tonight to our brothers & sisters of the @yarmouthpolice & to Officer Sean Gannon’s family and friends,” the tweet said. “We are also praying tonight for the recovery of Officer Gannon’s K9 partner, who was also injured in today’s tragic incident.”
Our condolences to the Yarmouth Police Department and the family of Sean Gannon. The Yarmouth PD are one of the best in the state. They are extremely proactive on social media (particularly Facebook) and connect with citizens in a professional and polite manner at all times. Their “Warrant Wednesdays” have directly led to the arrests of countless individuals, as has their mugshots that they always post. Like this guy who was upskirting women last summer and was caught shortly after they posted about it. They are the poster child for responsible policing. This tragedy could not have happened to a better group of men and women.
The killer’s name is Thomas Latanowich. And just like Ron Tarentino’s killer, he’s been arrested for a billion violent crimes in the past:
A Cape Cod career criminal with 111 charges on his record was arrested again Wednesday, charged with stabbing a man who was just released from prison, according to police. Thomas Latanowich, 28, of Yarmouth, was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Police said the victim suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries to his wrist.
Police said the victim had just been released from the state corrections center in Hyannis and was being driven home by his girlfriend. Latanowich tailed their vehicle and when they pulled up to a red light, he got of his vehicle, approached the victim’s vehicle, then stabbed the man, police said. Latanowich was tracked down to the Swan Pond Village area and arrested, police said, adding an officer found the knife in the stabbing in Latanowich’s possession. He was held in custody pending an arraignment Thursday.
Authorities said Latanowich is well-known to Cape Cod law enforcement. Yarmouth police Lt. Steven Xiarhos called him a “notorious and violent criminal.” At the time of his Latanowich’s Wednesday, he was out on bail with multiple cases pending, Xiarhos said.
I’m so angry right now. I’m so fucking sick of this shit. It’s Ronald Tarrentino and Jorge Zambrano all over again. I’m so sick of judges letting these VIOLENT repeat offenders wander our streets in the naive and foolish assumption that they have redeemable qualities and will miraculously turn their lives around. I’m so sick of politicians whining about TOO MANY people being incarcerated in this country. We don’t incarcerate nearly enough of these savages.
These people are animals. They belong in cages. When you get the opportunity to lock one up (for instance, a guy out on bail with 111 priors who just stabbed a guy and is well known to police) you push for the MAXIMUM. Any judge who lets these assholes off the hook should be legally responsible for the carnage they cause afterwards.
We are going to learn more about this in the coming days. We will find out EVERYTHING. We will find out the name of every single judge who directly endangered the public by allowing this ANIMAL walk amongst us. Officer Gannon’s blood is on their hands. Thomas Latanowich is an animal. This is the only type of behavior he knows. But we pay judges to excercise JUDGEMENT. What kind of INSANE judgement would let someone like this out on the streets? What was the rationale? Jail wasn’t working for him like Zambrano? He stabbed a guy barely over a year ago in a premeditated attack in public!!
