    My prayers go out to this VERY YOUNG officer's family and friends. 24...God...it's so sad to see an officer...ANY officer lose his life, but a YOUNG officer is such a terrible thing.

    Go and rest young man...I've got the shift.

    Oh crap - another good guy down Hard to find the words. Yes, 24 - and only starting his LE career.

    Yet again it serves to help us realize the possibilities for danger with traffic stops.

    Always sad news to here of something like this. I always try to thank my local LEO for being out there; we had a local LEO murdered not that long ago.
