Angry Police Line of Duty Deaths

Gang-bangin' cop killer...

Police say newly freed gang member killed California officer
Feb 20,`17-- A gang member who was recently freed from jail killed his cousin and stole his car Monday then shot and killed a California police officer and wounded his partner before being wounded himself, authorities said.
Quote:
Whittier Officer Keith Lane Boyer died and Officer Patrick Hazel was wounded when they answered a report of a traffic accident in the eastern Los Angeles County suburb. A motorist pointed out the location of the car that had rear-ended his vehicle, and the officers approached the driver. "When they get him out of the car, they go to pat him down for weapons, they can see he's got tattoos all over his face and all over his neck," county sheriff's Lt. John Corina said.

The man then pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband and opened fire at the officers, who were wearing bulletproof vests and shot back, Corina said. "They walked up on the vehicle believing the motorist was in need of medical help and then they ended up in a gunfight for their lives," Sheriff Jim McDonnell said. Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper wept as he described Boyer as a friend of more than 25 years. "All of us have been grieving," the chief said. "And I didn't think I had any tears left." Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement of condolence. Capitol flags were ordered to be flown at half-staff in his honor.

The suspect, a 26-year-old gang member, had a history of serious crimes and had been granted early release from Los Angeles County jail about a week ago, Corina said. He didn't know the nature of his offense. His name wasn't immediately released. Earlier Monday, he shot and killed his cousin in East Los Angeles and took his car, which later rear-ended another car in the neighboring city of Whittier, Corina said. He got out and asked those he had hit to help push his stolen car from the intersection. Boyer and Hazel didn't know any of those details when they answered the report of a car accident, Corina said.

Boyer was pronounced dead at a hospital. Hazel, a three-year veteran, and the suspect were hospitalized in stable condition and were expected to live. After the shooting, a long line of police cars escorted the slain officer's body from a hospital in Irvine to the coroner's office. Mourners placed candles and flowers outside police headquarters. Boyer joined the force as a dispatcher in 1989 and became a full-time officer in 1990. A divorced father who played the drums, he was "the best of the best" who was sought for advice by his colleagues and superiors, the chief said. Boyer recently talked to the chief about retiring. The Whittier Police Department has about 125 sworn officers who patrol Whittier and Santa Fe Springs. The department has had two other officers killed in the line of duty - a detective in 1979 and a corporal in 1977.

R.I.P. Officer Keith Lane Boyer, killed in the line of duty. May his family, children and friends be covered by the Grace of Christ as they suffer this loss.


It works three ways as there are decent police officers, and those that carry fear of this same situation and become killer themselves. And as in life there are plain bad cops.

It is a rough world, sadly as far to many suffer while others strike out at innocents, use violence as a way to express themselves and lastly them that are terrorist.

Louisiana Sheriff's Deputy Slain...

Louisiana Sheriff's Deputy Fatally Shot; Suspect in Custody
March 19, 2017 - An East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputy was shot and killed while conducting an investigation Saturday.
Quote:
An East Baton Rouge deputy has died after he was shot while conducting an investigation before midnight on Saturday night, East Baton Rouge and Louisiana State Police officials confirmed. The shooting occurred near the Classic Cuts barber shop off O'Neal Lane, according to Louisiana State Police spokesman Bryan Lee. Two deputies were conducting an investigation near the barber shop, located at 1962 O'Neal Lane, when shots were fired. A suspect also sustained injuries, according to Lee, which were being treated. The suspect's condition was not given.


The identity of the deputy won't be released at this point, EBRSO spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said. "It's a tragic night for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office," Hicks said. " ... We're focused on working with the family, praying for the family and making sure that our deputies have the help and support that they need." Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie and East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome were at the scene and both expressed the need to keep the deputy's family in people's thoughts and prayers. Sheriff Sid Gautreaux was with the deputy's family at the hospital, Hicks said. "My thoughts are this is certainly a tragedy for our community," Weston Broome said. "Our thoughts, our prayers, our condolences go out to the sheriff's deputy and his family."

Said Dabadie: "I think we are a very praying community and I think that thoughts and prayers are needed here and we come together just like we always do and always have. There's no doubt we won't here, also." The deputy was transported from Ochsner Medical Center after 2 a.m. with a procession of law enforcement vehicles. A large area near the AMC movie theater remained roped off in crime scene tape as police continued to investigate. Hicks said Louisiana State Police would be conducting the investigation.

Slain Louisiana Deputy Was 'The Epitome of a Public Servant'
March 20, 2017 - East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Sgt. Shawn Thomas Anderson was fatally shot Saturday night at a hair salon while trying to question a rape suspect.
Quote:
A veteran East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputy who served high-risk warrants and earned accolades in his career became the fourth law enforcement officer to die here in the line of duty over the last eight months after he was fatally shot Saturday night at a strip-mall hair salon while trying to question a rape suspect, officials said. Sgt. Shawn Thomas Anderson, 43, a father of two and an East Baton Rouge Parish deputy for 18 years, died after being rushed to nearby Ochsner Medical Center. Anderson and another deputy struggled with the rape suspect inside Classic Cuts, a storefront hair salon on O'Neal Lane, about 11 p.m., said Casey Rayborn Hicks, a Sheriff's Office spokeswoman. Hicks said during the struggle "shots were fired," and the deputy was wounded.

The rape suspect, who hasn't been identified by law enforcement, was also shot during the struggle, Hicks said. He remained hospitalized Sunday evening. No other details of the shooting were provided by State Police, who took over the investigation. Anderson was a decorated officer who, a year ago Sunday, earned accolades and local media attention after he helped a woman deliver her baby on Tiger Bend Road. “Our hearts are broken as we grieve for one of our brothers,” Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said in a statement. “We ask for your continued prayers and support during this difficult time as we mourn the loss and honor the memory of Sgt. Shawn Anderson.”


A State Police trooper guarded the scene Sunday morning as a few patrons of a nearby daiquiri shop in the same strip mall as the hair salon showed up to find out when authorities would let them get their vehicles, which were trapped behind the police tape put up the night before. Even as a parking lot for the next-door AMC Theater began to fill up for Sunday matinees, a few people were starting to leave flowers and other remembrances for the deputy on a brick planter in front of the salon. At Classic Cuts, a bullet hole was visible Sunday morning just under a decal saying "Cuts &" in one of the salon's large glass windows facing the mall and movie parking lots.

Lilnetta Roach, the owner of the hair salon, said she had few details about what happened or why. She was reached by telephone Sunday morning before details of the shooting or Anderson’s name were made public. Roach said some employees would work as late 11 p.m. on a Saturday and appeared to acknowledge that an unnamed male employee was at the business Saturday night. She declined to offer more details or give the employee's name until she could learn more. “I don’t know why he was there. I don’t know why he was there. All employees have a key,” Roach said.

UK police officer killed in terrorist attack...

UK Police Officer Dead After Terror Attack
March 22, 2017 - At least four people are dead, including a police officer and an assailant, after an attack outside Britain's Parliament in London on Wednesday.
Quote:
At least four people are dead, including a police officer and an assailant, after an attack outside Britain’s Parliament that London’s Metropolitan Police are treating as a "terrorist incident." Early reports were confusing, but witnesses reported hearing a commotion, shouting and the sound of gunfire. The assailant appears to have plowed a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge as he drove up to the Houses of Parliament and crashed into security railings, witnesses said. The suspect was reportedly clad in black and seen wielding an object in his hand when he attacked at least one police officer in an area where members of the public are not allowed.

Tobias Ellwood, the foreign office minister, tried to help save the injured officer by administering CPR and applying pressure to his wounds, according to images shared widely on social media. Ellwood lost his brother, Jon, in a 2002 bombing attack that killed more than 200 people in Bali. Commander B.J. Harrington of the London Metropolitan Police told reporters that officers had responded to a number of reports, including of a person in the River Thames, a car in a collision with pedestrians and a man armed with a knife. He confirmed there were a number of casualties, including police officers, but could not provide details. “Although we remain open-minded to the motive, a full counterterrorism investigation is already underway,” he said.


Emergency services on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at the scene outside the Palace of Westminster, London, after a policeman was reportedly stabbed and his apparent attacker shot by officers in a major security incident at the Houses of Parliament.

A doctor at nearby St Thomas’ Hospital told Britain’s Press Association that one woman died and a number of other people were hurt, some with “catastrophic injuries.” Ambulance personnel treated at least 10 patients on the bridge and put a number of hospitals on alert, said Pauline Cranmer, deputy director of the London Ambulance Service. It was not immediately clear whether they included the woman who died. A woman was pulled out of the river alive but injured, said Martin Garside, a spokesman for the Port of London Authority.

House of Commons Leader David Lidington described the situation to members of Parliament. “There has been a serious incident within the estate,” the conservative politician said. “It seems that a police officer has been stabbed, that the alleged assailant has been shot by police. There are also reports of further violent incidents within the vicinity of the palace of Westminster.” Staff and lawmakers in the area were told to stay inside their offices and a session of the House of Commons was suspended. “I am locked in my office with other MPs and frightened young researchers,” Michael Fabricant, a Conservative Party lawmaker, said on Twitter. “We have broken open a bottle of whiskey.”

42 police officers decapitated in Katanga province of the DRC...

42 police ambushed, beheaded by Congolese militia
March 25, 2017 -- A Congolese militia ambushed and beheaded 42 police officers in one of the most gruesome incidents of violence in the country recently.
Quote:
The incident happened outside the city of Kananga, in the central part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Violence in the south central provinces in the Kasai region of the Congo has been simmering for months with a local tribal militia known as Kamuina Nsapu fighting government security forces.


A militia in the central part of the Democratic Republic of Congo was blamed for ambushing and decapitating 42 government police officers on Saturday. The militia has been fighting government security forces outside the city of Kananga, shown here, for months.

According to a United Nations estimate, more than 400 people have been killed in the fighting since last year and tens of thousands of Congolese in the area have been forced to flee or risk being caught up in the fighting.

The New York Times reported Saturday tensions have flared after a series of videos surfaced online of government forces killing civilians in the region. The Congolese army announced last week seven officers had been arrested and charged with war crimes after a video showed them shooting 13 unarmed civilians to death.

Okla. police officer dies from shootout with suspect...

Oklahoma Police Officer Killed by Suspect Who Fled From Traffic Stop
March 27, 2017 - Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney died after being shot by a suspect who fled a traffic stop.
Quote:
A police officer who was shot by a man who fled a traffic stop late Sunday has died, police said Monday. Officer Justin Terney, 22, died Monday morning. Terney was shot by a man who was then shot by Terney in an exchange of gunfire, Tecumseh Police Assistant Chief J.R. Kidney said.

Terney stopped a vehicle with a woman driving it about 11:30 p.m. Sunday at Benson Park and Gordon Cooper, Kidney said. The male passenger fled, and Terney chased him. He used a Taser on the man with no effect. The woman was taken into custody, Kidney said. The man, who has not been positively identified, shot Terney and Terney returned fire, Kidney told reporters outside OU Medical Center on Monday morning.

Terney underwent surgery for three gunshot wounds. The man who shot him suffered four gunshot wounds, Kidney said. Kidney said Terney was from Canadian and was also a volunteer firefighter. Terney had a new puppy and he dreamed of being a canine officer and was "gung'-ho" about police work, Kidney said. "He (Terney) was a very young officer who was just getting started in his career," Kidney said.

In a news conference Monday morning, Kidney said Terney had radioed a dispatcher after stopping the vehicle late Monday. The dispatcher located an outstanding warrant and told Terney about it. Once the man learned he was wanted he ran into a wooded area. Kidney said a Taser did not have any effect on the man and the man continued to run before gunfire was exchanged.
