    (CNN)While friends were commenting on his last Facebook post Friday -- and some were reading text messages indicating his plan to commit suicide by cop -- Trepierre Hummons called 911 then waited with a gun for police to arrive, Cincinnati police said.

    When they did, he and shot and killed 48-year-old Officer Sonny Kim, a husband and father of three, police said.

    Then he opened fire on two more officers, said Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffery Blackwell.

    http://www.wlwt.com/news/friends-com...y-kim/33679692

    When he was not patrolling the streets of District 2, Kim was a senei at Japanese Karate-do in Symmes Township. His students placed flowers at the door of the Karate studio on Friday afternoon.

    Sources told WLWT News 5 Kim was working overtime when he was shot and killed.
    This is terrible news for us in Cincinnati. I know people who trained under Sonny Kim, it sucks to hear him go.

    My only guess is people didn't take it seriously enough.

    Committing suicide via another person is probably the most selfish act you could possibly commit.

    seriously, why do people think it's okay to commit suicide via this action? you're taking the life of someone else in the process of taking your own, it's so fucking pathetic.

    My guess is that they might have thought it was some kind of joke; hindsight is always 20/20 as they say. The FB post, I can understand, since it doesn't hint as to what he was planning.

    It's a mixed bag in the occurrence of such incidents, because in some cases (like this one) the officers may have no idea that the suicidal individual might try to kill them too. The textbook definition usually says they deliberately put themselves into situations where a LEO or other legitimately armed individual is provoked into lethal response.

    There are two specific categories; when it happens during the commission of crimes, or as in this case, a person contemplates suicide, and chooses this method to kill themselves.

    There are some shady parts, but Cincinnati's improved a lot in terms of crime in the past decade. Over-The-Rhine used to be somewhere NOBODY wanted to go, but now it's essentially the place where all young people like to go at night for drinks and it's really involved in the arts now (there's still a relatively high level of drug-related crime in the area though).

    Then again it's not like police are killed every day even in other cities, and there is definitely the same correlations between race, poverty and crime like other cities in the US.

    The overall crime rate's not as low as it was before the 2001 riots (Cincy has a very long history of riots) but it's still gone down since then.

    Things are honestly looking up for Cincinnati, in my opinion. A lot of what we have going for us is our historic landmarks and our interesting history, so a lot of money is being put into trying to not be like the rest of the Rust Belt.

    The Christian Moerlein Brewing Co., which used to be one of the largest brewing companies in the United States before Prohibition, re-opened up a few years ago and is a big player in our also pretty big craft beer scene.

    The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is basically our landmark at this point. They recently got a bill approved that will allow a fraction of a cent to fund restoration of the building.


    Also there's our famous streetcar system, which may or may not be built and reopened if City government can figure out whether and how they want to fund it.

    Our sports teams still kinda suck since the 90's but I don't care as long as they beat Pittsburgh in something.

    Heard about this the other day. Takes a sick fuck to kill an officer because he wants to die by cop. Big loss for Cincy community.

    The only way someone should ever do suicide by cop is by shooting at, but actively missing the officers.

    Or even just using blanks or something.

    Don't actually fucking shoot them wtf prick

    sometimes it's because they can't do it themselves, either because they're too scared or it's too hard or something along those lines.

    Suicide by cop should never be done at all. Not even with blank rounds. A Police officer whould have to live with the fact that he had to kill a person.

    Obviously it should never be done ideally, but I'm talking if you're fucked up enough to do it, at least be courteous when you going out.

    I don't understand suicide by cop when you already have a loaded gun. Wouldn't it be a lot quicker, simpler, less painful and less selfish just to shoot yourself in the head?

    no, no one expects to be killed responding to a 911 call. No one expects to be killed at all.

    You're trying to use logic on someone who wishes to kill themselves. It doesn't work like that.

    If you're currently in possession of a gun you already have a painless way of killing yourself, just saying.

    people don't go into a police force career to kill people. they shouldn't expect to shoot someone down every time they respond to a call. no idea what you're on about

    what does that even mean? yeah sure, you're dead, but it doesn't mean that you wanted the event to happen. plus loved ones, friends, and anyone else that cared about you will actually care a LOT when you die, especially in a scenario like this.

    plus it's in the back of an officers mind that they'll have to kill someone, especially responding to a 911 call. they don't automatically expect that every call they respond to that they'll have to kill someone, there's officers out there that have yet to have responded to a call where they had to shoot their gun, let alone kill another person.

    Or maybe just maybe they should just shoot themselves in the fucking head and not put someone else through emotional turmoil?
