Thank you to our wonderful legal system that lets a man convicted of attempted murder out after 4 years - unbelievable, and now a wonderful policeman has been killed and another wounded by this guy. Forget fixing problems in the Middle East, we have problems right here with crime that we turn a blind eye to.

It's time like this that you wonder why we have to try to "heal" a shooting suspect that apparently killed an officer and critically wounded another. It would be tough to be a surgeon knowing that you're helping to "fix" up a cop killer. I'm glad that I don't have to worry about this. I was deeply saddened to hear about the whole incident on the radio yesterday. My condolences and prayers go out to the family.

You heal them to bring them to justice... So he can rot in prison and be miserable for the rest of his life.

The Tribune reports:
"According to a recent hearing results report issued by the Utah Board of Pardons, Garcia-Juaregui was on parole. His case was reviewed in December and again on Jan. 21. A notation on his case says he was "not to remain in or enter the United States illegally.""

Another case where if we enforced our immigration laws our crime rate would be lower. And, a wonderful Utah law enforcement officer, father of five, would be alive. How many citizens have to die at the hands of illegals before we take immigration violations seriously?

Legal immigrants are welcome, but illegal actions are just that, and should not be tolerated, whether it is breaking immigration laws, or killing cops, or attempting to murder other people.

Enforce all our laws and make our country safe. And, save the lives of our cops!

My heart is saddened to read about this.

My head says those who approved the "plea bargain" a few years ago need to suffer some remorse and hopefully those attorneys and the judge who agreed to that deal will now develop the resolve to actually invoke justice on those misfits who do these terrible, horrific crimes against society and individuals. There ought to be justice in this country; it was not meted out last time, maybe it will be this time.

Other sources say Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui has passed away.

"A notation on his case says he was "not to remain in or enter the United States illegally."

Why didn't Ice put a hold on him if he was here illegally? Isn't that Obama's policy, to remove dangerous criminals?

In this sad day and age of such callous, violent criminals -- and high-powered weapons/ammo, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY our police officers' vehicles are not "hardened" (bulletproof)?!?

As a society, we have GOT to protect our law enforcement personnel much, much better. Our legislators MUST give better funding to police agencies to give more protective gear and vehicles to our officers!!

God bless Officer Wride and his family, and all the peace officers affected by this horrible tragedy.

Karma is perhaps the only real form of justice in the universe. I love Karma.

Frankly, I don't want to have to pay for the upkeep and support of people who commit these types of heinous crimes. Going to prison isn't the back breaking, isolated confinement, ball and chain penalty most people imagine.

How do I know that? I worked as a corrections officer for the State of Utah when I lived in Salt Lake and spent a good portion of my time at the state prison.

Tough situation for everyone involved. This incident needs to be looked at very closely for all of the obvious parameters involved. Since he was wanted, there had to be people who knew and now they should be looked at with charges at aiding and abetting. From every indication, the girl did not appear to be too upset about the incident. The car jackings are very disturbing. A previous comment states that he should have been deported. The nature of crime is also quite disturbing. Because of recent legal issues, it appears that the state of Utah is a target for a package of laws aimed at reforming their conservative value system. You have to look at this shooting of the officer as an evil act of "behavior modification". The shooter and the girl are both harbingers of a liberated society.

Thankfully this Mr. Jaregui received injuries inconsistent with life. God needed to have a conversation with this young man. Thanks to the Juab County Deputies for arranging that meeting. May God bless and grant peace to the families of Sgt. Wride and Deputy Sherwood and to the Utah County Sheriff's Office family.

Sheriff Tracy reported that Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui was in the country legally. Since he died from his gunshot wounds, I doubt that we will be able to find the truth about that. The other Salt Lake daily news paper reported that there was a notation in his case file which said he was "not to remain in or enter the United States illegally." That appears to be a voluntary deport order, which was obviously ignored, making him illegal. He may have been in the US legally prior to the stabbing which sent him to prison, but ignoring the deportation order makes him an illegal alien. Since he will not go to jail, determining the truth will be difficult, since the media is not likely to investigate further.

If Garcia-Juaregui was a U.S. citizen, why was he issued a deportation order?

If Garcia-Juaregui was a foreign national in the country legally who failed to comply with a deportation order, why was he referred to as a U.S. citizen?

It doesn't add up.
