    This is SHOCKING. Weber has been a fixture on WABC radio since I can remember. I *always* listened to him - especially during 9/11. He was a steady hand on the ship in a raging storm... I remember my heart dropped in my throat a couple of months later when he announced a jet had crashed in Queens (Flight 587). This is terrible.

    An investigation into Weber's death is ongoing and no arrests have been made.

    "We are shocked and deeply saddened by the death of our colleague and friend George Weber who was the victim of what police have deemed a homicide at his home in Brooklyn," said Steve Jones, vice president and general manager of ABC News Radio.

    "An investigation has been launched by NYPD and we have been assisting them," he added. "Our condolences and prayers go out to George's family and friends at this very difficult time."

    This story is what's shocking to me! Very!


    4 California Police Officers Dead, Gunman Killed After Traffic Stop



    Four Oakland police officers were killed after two shootings Saturday, the first after a routine traffic stop and the second after a massive manhunt ended in gunfire, authorities said. The gunman, who was wanted on a parole violation, was also killed.

    "It's in these moments that words are extraordinarily inadequate," said Mayor Ron Dellums at a somber news conference announcing the slayings. It was the first time in the history of the Oakland Police Department that three officers were killed in the line of duty in the same day.

    The violence began when two officers on motorcycles stopped a 1995 Buick sedan in east Oakland just after 1 p.m., Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said. The driver opened fire, killing one officer and gravely wounding another.

    The gunman then fled on foot, police said, leading to an intense manhunt by dozens of Oakland police, California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff deputies. Streets were roped off and an entire area of east Oakland closed to traffic.

    Around 3:30 p.m. officers got an anonymous tip that the gunman was inside a nearby apartment building. A SWAT team entered an apartment to clear and search it when the gunman opened fire, police said. Two members of the SWAT team were killed and a third was grazed by a bullet, police said.

    It's a great loss ... but really ... we had a few die within the last week ourselves. 4 children died somewhere else in America ... life ends, that is inevitable, it kinda sucks when someone else takes it but I see no difference between that and ... well ... someone killing their neighbor over a hedge, people beating each other to death for 'cutting them off', innocent people killing invading soldiers, soldiers killing the enemy ...

    ... guess what, it happens every minute of every day somewhere, people die, it's just a fact of life. So I am wrong for not worrying about a fact of life as well?
