Afghan War Vet Fatally Shot by Glendale Cop -- After Shooting at Female Officer
Jeremiah Pulaski, 24, returned to his home in Glendale from Afghanistan -- where he served in the United States Army -- in February, and it appears he's had some trouble readjusting to society.
According to his latest Facebook status update, he was thinking about doing some traveling.
"I think Im gonna Just take off and work shitty jobs just to make enough to get to the next town. IM gonna be a drifter! I have a Rebel soul!" he posted on his Facebook page last Wednesday night.
He wasn't kidding about that rebel soul -- he fired off a few rounds at a Glendale cop early Saturday morning, which resulted in him being fatally shot by the female officer.

Nobody other than Pulaski was seriously hurt in the shootings. The original victim was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, and neither the officer, or a female "observer" who was riding with her were hit by any of the shots fired by Pulaski.
Judging by his Facebook page, Pulaski wasn't a happy dude. Some of his recent posts include
