No Known Connection In Murder Of Texas Deputy

posted on August 31, 2015

If you needed any convincing that there is a war being fought against our nation’s law-enforcement officers—sometimes metaphorical, sometimes not so much—the “execution-style” murder of Darren Goforth in Houston, Texas, should give you pause. The Harris County sheriff’s deputy had finished fueling his patrol car at a gas station when a man approached him from behind and shot him, then continued firing after the deputy was on the ground. 

Shannon Miles was arrested for the killing and has been charged with capital murder. Authorities say Miles does not seem to have known Goforth, and they think he targeted the deputy for no reason other than his law-enforcement status. 

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has ordered that city flags be lowered in memory of Deputy Goforth.
