A former Alabama state trooper has shot the district attorney for Alabama’s 17th Judicial Circuit, Greg Griggers, directly in the face today in an ambush attack, according to AL.com.

The local news site reports that the former trooper, Steven Smith, Jr., was killed by law enforcement responding to the crime scene after he shot the DA.

District Attorney Michael Jackson said that the dead assailant, Smith, has been investigated in the past in conjunction with a 1996 shotgun attack on the home of Sumter County Circuit Judge Eddie Hardaway, the first black judge to preside over Sumter, Marengo, and Greene counties in the state. Greg Griggers, the victim of today’s shooting, was the district attorney for those same counties and a registered Democrat in deep red Alabama.

5. There is the matter of the following paragraph from the first link:

Jackson also said that the dead assailant, Smith, has been investigated in the past in conjunction with a 1996 shotgun attack on the home of Sumter County Circuit Judge Eddie Hardaway, the first black judge to preside over Sumter, Marengo, and Greene counties in the state. Greg Griggers, the victim of today’s shooting, was the district attorney for those same counties and a registered Democrat in deep red Alabama.

8. Deep red Alabama.

Why ANYONE who works for a living would vote gop is beyond me. The gop is for wealthy people. I hope the judge pulls through. Sad to be shot because of your politics and beliefs.

Against a government official that HE believed should be 'overthrown', all off this is fine.
