Unexpected Crimes

An officer in Fairmont, MN ran into a burning house to save anyone inside, and instead he was shot in the chest. They officer was wearing his body armor and so was saved. The officer had a civilian with him who was also shot in the leg and the officer and civilian left the building. The shooter died in the burning building, perhaps shooting himself.

Anything you do can get you killed, including doing nothing, including doing the right thing. Dangers of all different kinds are out there. Officers drive their patrol cars and get hit by other drivers. Officers get ambushed while seated in their vehicles. Officers get blown up by terrorists, officers are in helicopters are killed in crashes.

Wear your armor. Wear your seat belt. Call and wait for back up. Don't work when you are sleepy. Always be ready for anything when at work, and expect the unexpected; that's what the SGT Says.

Always sad to hear about these types of things.
I still remember Off. Dan Faulkner back in Philly.
And Indiana state trooper Brad Matteson was killed when he was struck by a tractor trailer.
The world is a LOT more dangerous place, regardless of what anyone wants us to believe.

Stay safe .
