Florida dad shot dead in front of daughter, 2, in ‘targeted’ killing

A father of four was shot dead in front of his 2-year-old daughter in a quiet Jacksonville neighborhood last week — and Florida cops are calling the unsolved crime a “targeted” murder.

Software engineer Jared Bridegan, 33, was found dead next to his SUV in the normally quiet Lake Sanctuary neighborhood with his child still in the vehicle, according to a report.

Officials said he had been shot multiple times at close range on February 16th and that it was a “miracle” the girl was not hit by gunfire.

Bridegan’s car had its emergency lights flashing when officers arrived and there was spare tire in the middle of the street.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The state attorney's office announced Thursday a new arrest in the shocking murder of Florida father of four Jared Bridegan, who was gunned down in front of his toddler more than a year ago.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
