No matter how you look at it, the death of Arcenio Lujan is a tragedy.
Lujan was shot and killed by two state police officers on May 8 after he reportedly pointed a rifle at them. The officers were there checking in on Lujan because his former supervisor and a friend notified authorities that he appeared to be suicidal.
By most accounts, Lujan was a good man who was battling addiction to prescription drugs. Addiction is an insidious disease that robs people of their hope and leaves a trail of wrecked lives in its wake.
