The Takoma Park officer, 10-year veteran Douglas Malarkey of the patrol division, has been placed on administrative leave while the incident is investigated as per standard procedure.

Granted -- people who do this kind of stuff aren't very smart. But -- how do they think they can shoot at a policeman and get away with it?

Do they think that nobody will try to find them? Do they think the jury will say "Oh, it was in self defence."?

I think young Trevlyn's 14-year-old-mamma sat him in front of the television for too many years.

Exactly why did he attempt to shoot the officer? Does he have outstanding warrants? Was he committing some other crime?
Those details would fill in a lot of blanks in the story.
