    West Bloomfield police officer struck down

    Slain West Bloomfield officer hailed for devotion to family, faith, work | City of Detroit | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    From article;

    Patrick O'Rourke, the 39-year-old West Bloomfield police officer struck down by a bullet Sunday night, was laid to rest Friday in Fenton.

    As a late summer breeze blew and sunshine replaced memories of a rainy morning, hundreds of police officers, firefighters and others from across Michigan and parts of Canada stood in St. John Cemetery to pay their final respects.

    The 12-year veteran and father of four was shot when he and other officers went to assist someone they believed to be suicidal Sunday night.



    It was said he was one of the nicest police officers out there.
    On Thurday the 13 of Sept. tthey had a lot of people on the corners of W. Bloomfield collecting for his family.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    Godspeed and prayers to his family.
