Police executioner who gunned down Sunday-school teacher will spend 3 years in jail (not prison)
CULPEPER, VA -- A community is outraged once again, as a police officer who gunned down a Sunday-school teacher in a church parking lot receives a paltry 3 year sentence in jail.
54-year-old Patricia Cook was shot to death in the face as she applied for a teaching position at a local church. An angry police officer accosted her in her vehicle because he thought it looked "suspicious." Whatever transpired during that encounter frightened the woman into rolling up her window and attempting to drive away. The officer shot her in the face and kept firing as her Jeep drove into a telephone pole. She was unarmed, and by all accounts, an upstanding citizen who loved teaching children.
