There has been continued dispute about the events leading up to the tragedy of January 3 in Lake Hanson, but the outcome of those events is well known. Forty-seven people died that day, forty-six of them at the hand of domestic terrorist Tucker Morris. That itself, while tragic, is hardly grounds for an in-depth inquiry into the matter. We have seen terrorists kill hostages before and we have seen police kill terrorists who don’t surrender. That is not unique. What makes this story worth telling is that by all accounts Tucker Morris was the first person killed on January 3.
