What happened at the so called "violent rally" which caused the chopper to crash????

Did one of the demonstrators shoot them down?

Toss a protest sign at them?
Would we see the same "title" of violent protest if a chopper crashed at a BLM protest?

No offense to the officer's memories and their family's grief but,,,; we also have police deaths from ambush and resisting arrest.

2nd officer shot in Friday night mayhem dies...

Second police officer shot in Kissimmee dies after Friday night shooting
August 19, 2017 - The second of two police officers shot Friday night in Kissimmee in Central Florida has died, the Kissimmee police department posted on Facebook Saturday afternoon. “It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Sergeant Richard “Sam” Howard. Sam succumbed to his injuries this afternoon,’’ the department said in its posting.
Quote:
Howard, 36, and Officer Matthew Baxter, 27, were involved in a shootout that began around 9:30 p.m. Friday in Kissimmee when the officers checked out a trio of people in one of the city’s neighborhoods. Baxter began to scuffle with one, Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell told reporters Saturday morning. Howard, who arrived as a backup, became involved and both officers were struck by gunshots. Neither had time to return fire, O’Dell said. Baxter, a three-year veteran, died Friday night; Howard, a 10-year veteran, died on Saturday.


Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O'Dell, left, holds a news conference Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017 in Kissimmee, Fla. A suspect in the fatal shooting of a police officer in Florida and the grave wounding of a sergeant was arrested several hours after the attack in a bar, authorities said Saturday. Everett Miller faces a charge of first-degree murder for the killing of Officer Matthew Baxter and could face other charges for the wounding of Sgt. Sam Howard, said O'Dell. Kissimmee is located south of the theme park hub of Orlando, Florida.

About an hour and a half later and 160 miles north on Friday night, two Jacksonville police officers were shot while responding to a call reporting a suicidal person on the city’s west side. When the suspect, later identified as Derrick Rashard Brabham, exited the house with a semi-automatic rifle, he traded gunfire with the police, the Jacksonville Times-Union reported. One officer was shot in the stomach, and another was shot in both hands. Brabham was declared dead after being taken to a nearby hospital. The officers, later identified as Michael Fox and Kevin Jarrell, were both in stable condition Saturday morning, according to the Times-Union.

About two hours after the shooting in Kissimmee, police arrested 45-year-old Everett Glenn Miller when he fled to a bar around 11:30 p.m. Miller, a Marine veteran who had been recently taken into custody by the Osecola County Sheriff’s Office over mental health concerns, was found with two guns, a 9mm and .22 revolver, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Miller was charged Saturday morning with resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon, according to Osecola County Jail records. An early investigation found that Miller had also threatened police officers online, O’Dell said. He added that his officers intended to use Baxter’s handcuffs on Miller when he is taken to the county jail, and that he expects Miller will also face a murder charge, according to the Sentinel.

Both officers were wearing body armor but no body cameras when they were struck. “They are both wonderful men, family men. They are both very committed to the community,” O’Dell said, according to the Sentinel. “They were the epitome of what you ask for in law enforcement officers.”

Second officer dies in Florida police shooting
Sat August 19, 2017 - Police say Sgt. Richard "Sam" Howard died Saturday afternoon; Everett Glenn Miller charged earlier in killing of police Officer Matthew Baxter
Quote:
A second Florida police officer has died from wounds he suffered in a shooting Friday night, Kissimmee police said on its Facebook page.
Sgt. Richard "Sam" Howard died Saturday afternoon, a day after Officer Matthew Baxter died at the scene of a shooting in the central Florida city near Orlando. Earlier Police Chief Jeff O'Dell said Everett Glenn Miller, 45, had been charged with first-degree murder in Baxter's killing.


Suspect charged in death of Florida officer

The officers were in an area known for drug activity, and Baxter approached Miller and two other men before 9:30 p.m. Friday, the chief said. Howard came as backup. There was a scuffle and gunfire, O'Dell said. "Officers immediately responded to the area and found two of their fallen brothers gravely injured on the roadway," O'Dell said.

Baxter, a three-year veteran of the Kissimmee Police Department, was pronounced dead. Miller is the only one charged of three people the police questioned, the chief said. He also faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest. O'Dell said he was found at a bar and had a 9 mm pistol and a .22-caliber revolver.

Condolences from Trump, governor

Following the news of the shooting, President Donald Trump tweeted his condolences. "My thoughts and prayers are with the @KissimmeePolice and their loved ones. We are with you!" the President said.

My thoughts and prayers are with the @KissimmeePolice and their loved ones. We are with you!#LESM
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2017

Florida Gov. Rick Scott described Baxter as a husband, a father and a hero. "Heartbroken to hear loss of @kissimmeepolice officer Matthew Baxter. Praying for a quick recovery for officer in critical condition," Scott tweeted. Later he added: "Our grieving hearts become even heavier with the terrible news of Sgt. Sam Howard's passing." Kissimmee is about 20 miles south of Orlando.

Quote:
A Chicago police officer who was seriously wounded after he was shot while on duty 29 years ago died from complications from his injuries on Sept. 5. Officer Bernie Domagala responded to a hostage situation at 7237 South Stony Island Avenue on July 14, 1988 before the shooting occured, according to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. He had taken a defensive position at the corner of the garage of the residence and looked around the corner at the house. That's when the suspect fired his weapon, hitting Domagala above his eye in the forehead.


Chicago Police Officer Bernie Domagala is seen with his wife, Denise, and his three sons

The then 37-year-old was transported to Michael Reese Hospital where he underwent six hours of surgery to remove a bullet from his brain. Domagala suffered a traumatic brain injury that left him disabled and confined to a rehabilitation center for several years. He underwent numerous brain surgeries and continued to experience severe complications related to his wounds. "He loved his job as he knew he would, and always said 'every day is something different, a new challenge,' " a statement from the foundation reads. "While on the job two challenges he enjoyed were being assigned to the Gang Crimes South Unit and becoming a member of the Hostage, Barricade, and Terrorist Unit (HBT)." The Chicago native, who joined the force in 1981, is survived by his wife, Denise, and his sons Erik, Craig and Adam.

Funeral Arrangements

Visitation is set for Sunday, Sept. 10 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Blake Lamb, 4727 W 103rd St, Oak Lawn, Illinois. Funeral services are set for Monday, Sept 11 at 10 am at Queen of Martyrs Church, 10233 S. Central Park Evergreen Park.

Suspect pleads not guilty in Fatal Shooting of Off-Duty Missouri Police Officer...

Suspect Charged in Fatal Shooting of Off-Duty Missouri Police Officer
September 22, 2017 - Sean D. Steward pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and assault in the Aug. 20 fatal shooting of off-duty Lee's Summit Police Officer Thomas Alvin Orr III.
Quote:
A 22-year-old man charged with firing handgun into a crowd during a party in Westport and killing an off-duty Lee’s Summit police officer made his first court appearance on Thursday. The court entered a plea of not guilty for Sean D. Steward of Kansas City to second-degree murder and assault in the Aug. 20 fatal shooting of Thomas Alvin Orr III. Seward looked down as Circuit Court Judge Mary Weir read the criminal charges. Bond remained at $500,000.

Orr, 30, was fatally shot at a day party at Californos restaurant at 41st Street and Pennsylvania inside the entertainment district. Police said Orr, who also was a middle school resource officer, was not the intended target. According to court records, a witness told investigators that they saw Steward fire a handgun and run down a flight of stairs and out of the bottom lower entrance of the restaurant.

The shooting happened after one man struck another man in the face, causing him to fall to the floor. Steward allegedly fired into the crowd, then sped away in a dark-color Dodge Charger. Another witness told police that several people at the party told her that Steward fired the shots that killed Orr and struck the woman. Police found on social media sites photos from the party with names that witnesses said were identified with Steward. The photos had the Facebook names of “Stew Bird and Cuzzo Jay,” according to court records.

Orr had been with the Lee’s Summit Police Department since March 2015 and began assignment as a middle school resource officer on Aug. 14. Before that, he had worked for the Marshall, Mo., Police Department. Police at first said the victim was shot after arguing with another man. However, further investigation revealed that Orr was an innocent bystander who was not involved in the disturbance. Witnesses said that Orr took photographs at the party. The next hearing in the case was set for Oct. 5. Steward said he plans to hire an attorney.

Suspected cop killer caught...

Georgia man suspected of killing officer caught after manhunt
Sept. 29, 2017 -- Authorities in Georgia said they arrested a man suspected of shooting two officers, killing a detective, before fleeing and prompting a manhunt Friday.
Quote:
Police said Brandon Spangler, 31, pulled out a handgun and opened fire on Cedartown, Ga., officer David Goodrich and detective Kristen Hearne. The officers were responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle around 6 a.m. when Spangler and 22-year-old Samantha Roof approached them from nearby woods, Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vernon Keenan said. Goodrich was shot in his bulletproof vest and was treated for injuries. Hearne died from her injuries. "It was more or less an ambush," Polk County police Chief Kenny Dodd said at a news conference. "[Spangler] drew the gun before they knew what happened."


Police arrested Brandon Spangler after he allegedly led them on a manhunt. Officials say he opened fire on two police officers in Georgia, killing a detective.

Roof and Spangler ran from the scene after the shooting, and a short time later, police captured Roof. Police captured Spangler around 2:45 p.m. when he emerged from the woods naked and surrendered. Spangler had warrants for his arrest for felony probation violation. He served more than a year in prison for methamphetamine possession and a weapons charge, and was released in August 2016.

Hearne's death is the first time an officer has died in the line of duty in the Polk County Police Department's 60-year history. The 29-year-old served on the department for five years and is survived by her husband, an officer in Aragon, Ga., and a 3-year-old daughter. "Words can't express the sorrow, and the hurt that we feel right now as a agency, and our heart goes out to the family," Dodd said. "Kristen was the type of officer who lit up any room that she was in. You always knew when she was present."

Officer Kristen Hearne Killed During Investigation
September 29, 2017
Quote:
This morning, Officer Kristen Hearne was serving as backup to Officer David Goodrich in an investigation of a suspicious vehicle on Santa Claus Road near Highway 100 between Cedartown and Cave Spring. Seth Spangler and Samantha Roof came out of the woods and began having words with the officers. At some point, Spangler pulled out a handgun and shot both officers. Officer Goodrich was wearing a bulletproof vest and survived the shooting. Officer Hearne, a detective, was not wearing a vest at the time of the shooting. Officer Goodrich was a retired EMT and tried to administer first aid to Officer Hearne. Unfortunately Officer Hearne did not survive the shooting.


Kristen Hearne was 29 years old and a mother to a a three year old child. She also leaves behind a husband. Hearne was a detective with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Polk County Police Department. According to officials, it’s not routine for an investigator to wear a vest. Hearne was going out just as a backup for Goodrich. After a search that involved several different agencies, Seth Spangler was arrested after walking out of the woods, naked, and dirty. He has been charged with felony murder. Spangler has already had bond denied. His next appearance in Superior Court has not been scheduled.

Spangler had outstanding warrants out of Walker County for probation violations. The Georgia Bureau of Investigations is working with Polk County police during this investigation.Officer Kristen Hearne was the first officer to lose their life in the line of duty in Polk County. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hearne family and to all of our officers that selflessly put their lives on the line everyday to keep us all safe.

Lafayette Police Cpl. Michael Paul Middlebrook killed responding to a call Sunday in Louisiana...

More Details Released in Slaying of Louisiana Police Officer
October 2, 2017 - Lafayette Police Cpl. Michael Paul Middlebrook was killed responding to a call Sunday.
Quote:
A Lafayette police officer was shot and killed Sunday night at a convenience store on Moss Street by a gunman who was soon taken into custody, said State Police spokesman Master Trooper Brooks David. Cpl. Michael Paul Middlebrook, a 9-year veteran with the Lafayette Police Department, died Sunday night in the incident, said Lafayette police spokesman Cpl. Karl Ratcliff. Two other people were injured in the shooting but are expected to survive, David said. Police were called to the Big Boy Discount Zone around 10:30 p.m. Sunday about an aggravated assault with a gun, but the call was upgraded to a shooting before officers arrived, David said. When police arrived, gunfire was exchanged with a shooter, David said, with at least one bullet striking and killing Middlebrook. The shooter has not been identified. State Police were called in to investigate the shooting.

Avery Cross, 29, went to the convenience store, 3601 Moss St., to buy a drink minutes before the Lafayette police officers arrived, he said Monday morning. The front doors to the shop were locked, which was uncharacteristic for the 24-hour store, he said, but soon a store employee came out front to explain there had been a shooting, even pointing out the bullet holes in the window. A cashier had been injured in the shooting and was in the bathroom waiting for help, Cross said he was told. Css said soon after two officers showed up, and one went inside to check on the injured employee. Cross said no one knew the gunman was inside the store. "The cop didn't know that the (armed) guy was still in there," Cross said. "So when he walked in, the guy popped out and started shooting."


Cpl. Michael Paul Middlebrook

Cross said he heard at least five shots from inside the store. He said the shooter then came outside and fired into the air, yelling at people to back up. "I heard the shooting and I just started running," Cross said. "When it was happening, the only thought was just to make it home." After living in that part of Lafayette, Cross said he has seen other shootings before, but he expected the violence to end once police officers arrived. "When you see a cop you think everything will settle down," Cross said. "It didn't happen like that." Lisa Zerbe lives across Moss Street from the convenience store, and said she heard at least 40 shots over the span of the shooting Sunday night. She called 911. "When I heard that many (shots) and I heard people crying, I was like, 'I'm dialing right now,'" Zerbe, 48, said. She said she was on the line with the dispatcher as shots rang out, squatting to stay below the windows. "I mean, it is ridiculous."

Middlebrook was born in Thibodeaux and spent his career in the patrol section of the Lafayette Department "helping and truly serving the community, as was his passion," Ratcliff wrote in a news release. In March, Middlebrook was honored with the state's Heart of Law Enforcement Award for collecting food that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it to those in need. "The Lafayette Police Department is devastated by this sudden loss," Ratcliff wrote. "We ask that you keep Corporal Middlebrook’s family and the Lafayette Police Department in your thoughts and prayers." Middlebrook leaves behind a wife, a 3-year-old daughter, two stepdaughters, and his parents, police said in the release.

Suspected druggie student shoots, kills police officer...

Texas Tech Police Officer Killed, Campus On Lockdown
October 09, 2017 — Texas Tech University in Lubbock was placed on lockdown after a campus police officer was shot and killed.
Quote:
University spokesman Chris Cook said campus police made a student welfare check Monday evening and, upon entering the room, found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Officers then brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing.


Crime scene investigators collect evidence from the pavement as police respond to an attack on campus at Ohio State University, in Columbus, Ohio.

While at the station, Cook said the suspect pulled out a gun and shot an officer in the head, killing him. The suspect then fled on foot and remains at large. In a statement, the university identified the suspected shooter as 19-year-old Hollis Daniels.

Texas Tech officials issued a lockdown alert to students on social media, noting that the suspect had not been apprehended. The alert urged those on campus "to take shelter in a safe location.'' Additional information was not immediately available.
