Virginia Deputy Shot, Serious Condition

Joshua Anthony Sumter, 18, was apprehended in southern Stafford County around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said that Sumter fired multiple shots at a Stafford County deputy sheriff as the deputy responded to a call about a break-in on Windsor Ridge Court in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

The deputy sheriff was taken to the hospital in serious condition with extensive but non-life threatening injuries.

Before his arrest, authorities said Sumter was considered armed and dangerous, and issued a warrant for him for attempted capital murder.

    Another attempted assassination of a police officer.

    This started with “The police acted supidly” and has gone downhill from there.

    It’s only going to get worse if Obama Version 2.0 (Hillary) is elected.
