Getting pulled: Virginia State Police busy patrolling


The Virginia State Police are out patrolling, as this photo along I-64 would indicate. Curiously, they have yet to place charges in the February 9 shooting death of Patricia Ann Cook, an unarmed woman who, according to an initial State Police press release, trapped an Culpeper Town police officer's arm in her window. Two eyewitnesses, however, have described a vastly different account of the town officer pumping numerous shots into the 54-year-old Sunday school teacher's vehicle. State Police spokesperson Corinne Geller: "These investigations take several weeks to complete." She declined to release the name of the officer who killed Cook.
