    A vest sure might have helped.

    The security company I work for does not have vests. It's a damn shame some puke can just shoot a man who is doing his job. The puke wasn't going to get arrested, probably just shooed off. The badge/uniform makes security a target.

    You know a gun won't even help if somebody wants to shoot you for no reason other then you are wearing a uniform.

    That is exactly what it was.

    I got more of the story. Since the School Security went out from under the Sheriff's Office and under the school board, they are considered private security guards under TN law. All the law requires for them to work unarmed is 4 hours training. To work armed, all that is required is 8 additional hours. This officer had not yet completed his second phase of the training. His supervisors, as far as I am concerned, are responsible for his death, by allowing him to be placed in this situation. Also, he normally wore a vest when he worked at the school during the day, but noone knows why he chose not to wear it that night.
    The apparent reason the dirtbag was on school property, was that he had a flat tire on the car that he had stolen from his other homicide victim in Virginia. Officer Kocur came across him and called in to Sheriff's dispatch that he was checking a suspicious vehicle. He either turned his back on the dirtbag, or the dirtbag was hiding, but minutes after he initially made the call to dispatch, he called back that he had been shot. Deputies arrived within minutes and found Officer Kocur shot once in the back. The suspect had fled in the officer's personal car which was immediately BOLO'ed. Knoxville Police were onto the car within a couple of minutes and actually had to struggle with the dirtbag over the gun when they arrested the P.O.S. (They would have been doing everyone a favor if the had killed the piece of garbage.)
    It appears that since the school security officers' uniforms look like police uniforms, the dirtbag thought the officer was there looking for him regarding the Virginia homicide, and that he was about to be arrested.
    According to the news, the officer was to receive an honors funeral service and was going to be flown back to Texas for burial.

    From where the news said the bullet hit, a vest would have definitely increased his chance for survival.

    With adequate training, practice, and situational awareness, a weapon will most assuredly increase your chances. There is no guarantee of survival, but there are things to give a person an edge, and sometimes that is all it takes.
