Two Hazleton police officers rousted a man because of a disturbing Facebook post where he talked about sexually assaulting pre-teen girls he'd seen in videos. When the officers arrived at Joseph Polin's door, police say he shot at and missed one of the officers and that led to a four-hour standoff. He eventually was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot.
