    A sadly Thinner Blue Line in Bellaire, Texas

    Bellaire PD Cpl. Norman was fatally shot at the conclusion of a short vehicular pursuit mid-morning December 24th, in Houston, a short distance outside the city of Bellaire. A business owner who approached was then shot and killed, and the felon then engaged arriving back-up officers with gunfire. The felon is in critical condition at an ER, and expected to live.

    It was a somber, stressful couple of hours as I waited to learn the downed officer's name, as I live in Bellaire, work for a neighboring PD, and know many Bellaire PD officers. While I had seen Cpl. Norman before, I was not personaly acquainted with him. Rest in peace, Brother.

    Bellaire is a small city, very well-run, with a real sense of community. Bellaire is adjacent to two other small cities, West University and Southside Place, and the three are an island surrounded by the great sea of Houston.
