Dead flies putrefy the perfumer’s ointment, And cause it to give off a foul odor; So does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor ( Ecclesiastes 10:1)

''All he said was, 'Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, he shot me,' and then went upstairs and shot himself,'' Sheriff Pat Sullivan of Arapahoe County quoted the hostage, Jake Carper, as saying.
A police assault team rescued the wounded officers, lobbed flash grenades into the house and found the hostage and Mr. Thompson, Sheriff Sullivan said. The gunman died at 5:56 P.M. at Swedish Medical Center, said a hospital spokeswoman, Beverly Jacobsen. Hostage in Critical Condition

Former Colorado Sheriff Accused of Trying to Trade Drugs for Sex
Patrick Sullivan was the kind of lawman Coloradoans loved: a straight-shooting, Republican sheriff who once crashed a Jeep through a fence to rescue two deputies from a deranged gun-toting man and pleaded with legislators to keep assault weapons off the street lest any more citizens get shot.
On Tuesday afternoon, though, investigators from the same sheriff’s department he oversaw for nearly two decades found themselves monitoring a home near Denver that Mr. Sullivan was seen entering.
Soon after, the police arrested Mr. Sullivan, now 68 and long retired from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, on charges that he had been trying to exchange methamphetamines for sex with a man. He was booked that night at a local county jail that proudly bears his name.
“The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is saddened, and this is a sad time for our community,” said Grayson Robinson, the current sheriff, who served under Mr. Sullivan. “But we have a greater purpose, to serve our community with integrity and professionalism, and that’s exactly what we’ve done with this investigation.”
Comment: Sad for Mr. Sullivan and sad for the community
