Prayers that the Officer will recover. Just another "Yut" about to get his life back in order. He needs to go to be put away for the remainder of his days!

The officer's condition is very grave, according to news reports. He was apparently shot in the back of the head.
Prayers up for him and his family.

sorry to say but from information I obtained from a deputy shooting buddy, the young officers recovery is not looking good at all. I won't give the details, but the fact that he survived at all is a miracle.
Prayers with his family and young LEO...he has been with Lakeland PD for 18 months.
Update: Officer passed away this morning from his wounds.

Officer.com Editor's Note: Officer Arnulfo Crispin passed away overnight and his body was escorted by police from Lakeland Regional Medical Center to an undisclosed location, according to WTSP-TV.
LAKELAND -- The news was expected, but that didn't make it any easier for the family, friends and co-workers of Lakeland police officer Arnulfo Crispin.
The 25-year-old officer, shot in the head Sunday night while investigating a report of suspicious activity at a park known for gang violence and drug dealing, will not recover.
"There will never be a time when this will be easy to deal with," a tearful Police Chief Lisa Womack said Tuesday evening during a news conference at police department headquarters, with dozens of Crispin's fellow officers and co-workers lined up behind her. "It will never be something that is an easy thing to handle."
Womack said the family is making final medical decisions.
"The family is clearly devastated with what happened," Womack said. "We are honoring their privacy until they are ready to speak."
Womack said Crispin epitomized Lakeland police officers with his "integrity, honesty and courage."
The shooting happened when Crispin was checking on three men in a city park on Crystal Grove Lane. The officer, according to a probable-cause affidavit, approached the men and started a conversation. He asked whether he could pat them down to search for weapons or drugs.
One of the men, Kyle Daivontae Williams, pulled out a gun and shot Crispin once in the head, and the other two men ran away, according to police interviews with the other two men.
One of the men told police Williams had shown him the gun earlier in the day. There was another man in the park, but he said he had turned his head and did not see Crispin get shot.
Neighbors reported hearing a single gunshot and seeing several men running out of the park, according to the affidavit. Six minutes after Crispin radioed in that he was going to talk to the men, Lakeland police officer Heather Freeman arrived at the scene. Moments later, she called in with the news that Crispin had been shot.
Williams, 19, was arrested at 8 a.m. Monday after a manhunt that included officers and deputies from neighboring jurisdictions. His mother assisted authorities in getting her son to surrender, police said.
On Tuesday afternoon, investigators searching nearby apartments found a gun of the same caliber as the one they were seeking, police said. Ballistics tests should show whether it is the one used in the shooting.
Williams appeared in a Polk County court Tuesday afternoon and was ordered held without bail on a charge of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer. The charge almost certainly will be upgraded to murder.
Williams, appearing in court from jail via video, responded with few words as the judge read the charge against him.

It just goes to show how cold blooded these little gangbanging punks are.It's time that they dealt with thugs that prey on society the way they should be hunted down and wiped off the face of the earth

"A Part of America Died"
Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.
The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.
