2 Law Enforcement Officers Killed in the Line of Duty

2 Law Enforcement Officers Killed in the Line of Duty

There are a lot of people in this nation that truly detest the Police. Most of them are cons or ex-cons, guys that were STUPID, got caught being STUPID, but they hate the Police for doing their job and locking them up. Some are just angry because they got a ticket for some reason. Who knows, it doesn’t take much to make *some* people hate the Police.

I am not so foolish as to believe that ALL Cops are great guys; they are not, but to HATE a group of people, simply because you had a bad interaction with 1 or 2, is just plain silly.

Police officers, by and large, are just like you and me, they have husbands/wives, mothers and fathers, siblings, children and they deal with more daily stress than anyone can ever imagine. And let me tell you something, these Officers are NOT doing their job for the money.

Yesterday, April 12, 2012, was a very bad day for every Police FAMILY of this nation, we lost 2 officers in Line of Duty Deaths (LODD).

Police Chief Michael P. Maloney

Police Chief Michael Maloney was shot and killed while serving a drug-related search warrant with officers from the Attorney General’s Drug Task Force shortly after 6:00 p.m. A subject in the home opened fire with a rifle, killing Chief Maloney and wounding four other officers.

The subject barricaded in the house following the shooting. He and a female were found dead several hours later after a SWAT team forced entry into the home.

Chief Maloney has served in law enforcement for 26 years and served with the Greenland Police Department since 2000. He was eight days from retirement. SOURCE

Deputy Sheriff Robert Paris

Deputy Sheriff Robert Paris was shot and killed while he and another deputy were serving an eviction notice at the Whispering Woods apartment complex on Chrysler Drive in Modesto.

The deputies were attempting entry into the residence around 11 a.m. when the subject opened fire, striking and killing Deputy Paris and a civilian. The suspect barricaded himself inside of the residence and has not yet been taken into custody.

Deputy Paris had served with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department for 16 years and is survived by his parents, a brother and two adult children. SOURCE

I want to offer my most sincere condolences to the families of these fallen officers.

And then we have this; score one for *The Good Guys*!

My brother in law and sister in law were both officers on the Mesquite Police Department for well over 30 years each. The Mesquite Texas Police Department does NOT take ANY BS off of the bad guys!

Police say officer shot, killed burglary suspect after a chase and violent struggle

A Mesquite police officer shot and killed a man suspected of burglary after he and two others led officers on a chase and violently resisted arrest, according to police.

Police said officers responded shortly after midnight to a burglary call at an apartment complex in the 1600 block of Hickory Tree Road. The suspects fled the area in a large white van.

Officers later spotted a van matching that description on IH635. The van fled when the officers attempted to stop it and a chase ensued. The chase ended in Dallas in the 2700 block of Oak Bend Lane near South Sam Houston Road when the suspects crashed into a fence.

The suspects exited the van and two were taken into custody, according to police. The third suspect fled on foot.

One of the officers caught the third suspect, police said, and tried to take him into custody. The suspect violently resisted as he assaulted the officer.

“The officer, fearing for his life, shot the suspect,” reads a release from Mesquite police.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.

The arrested persons’ and deceased person’s names are not being released pending notification of the deceased’s family, police said. SOURCE

To all my readers that are retired Cops, you know where I am coming from with this post and ones like it, as do my readers that are still active duty Officers. To those of you that have Cops in the family, love them and let them KNOW you love them.

To the Cop haters out there: BITE ME!

    Chief Maloney, I am sorry you didn’t make it into your retirement. Only 6 days to go. And this happened in a little town in NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!

    In Modesto, CA Deputy Sheriff Paris was shot and killed serving an eviction notice at 11 am in the morning.

    Just Damn!!! I know that area.

    I was assigned to help patrol that part of Stanslaus County area within the actual City Limits of Modesto, CA. It was a shithole area then, and I expect it still is.

    That year was January 1974. Along time ago, but is still in Technicolor in my memories. Serving warrants, 415F’s, sometimes turn into killings as quick as you can snap your fingers. SOP, always 2 officers minimum to serve.

    I expect when the perp was extricated from his barricade. he was treated with the utmost care and consideration.

    My condolences go out to their families and co-workers. I do believe that there is a very special place in Heaven for these fallen heroes. And that there is a very special place in Hell for their killers.

    III Percent people… For some reason, *some* of them HATE the Police, they see the Police as some force of bad I guess…

    Personally, I see these particular III Percent people as FOOLS, anarchist wannabes and weak minded followers..

    If that offends the III Percenters, they can ALL kiss my Texas ASS!

    Either get a grip of the assholes that operate under your flag or suffer the consequences as a group…

    Radicals, by ANY name, are merely radicals…

      Get your nose out of Oathbreakers’ asses and you’d see why most of us don’t care for cops.

      • TexasFred says:

        GO SCREW YOURSELF …

        I, unlike YOU, AM an Oath Keeper, all you are is a filthy mouthed piece of TRASH and a poser… It was asses like YOU that I most enjoyed taking down… As I said, thank you for showing your true self…

        You don’t care for Cops because in the past you have been busted and if I am not mistaken, done time for it? Am I close? You fashion yourself as some sort of bad-ass and you just want to be left alone.. Close?

        But you have to blast the Police for taking care of business in a LEGAL manner.

        Readers, Wirecutter (Ken Lane) is an anti-Police ASS from Modesto, CA. His blog, Knuckledraggin’ My Life Away, is filled with anti-Police hatred, masked as III Percent rhetoric, as well as other very distasteful stuff, language that I wouldn’t use in a BAR, and he adheres to that Rule 5 BS blogging crap, the rule that says “If you can’t draw em in with your posts and words, draw em in with nearly naked women..”

        Ken Lane has to draw em in with posts that are filled with gutter language and SOFT PORN, he is too weak-minded to make a legitimate post and garner a following otherwise…

        Knucklegragger suits you quite well Ken Lane, you’re a disgrace to normal humanity…

      • You dipshit! Who will you be calling the next time your stupid ass in in some serious trouble? The New Black Panthers? Jerry Springer..?

        • TexasFred says:

          He’s one of those *almost anarchists* Patrick, he’s too big a wuss to be a real one…

          He has hair to his ass and the nastiest blog I have ever seen… He is WHITE TRASH at it’s very best…

    God Speed to the officers lost and prayers for their families.

    The real issue that is probably not noted around the nation is WHO shot them? At least ONE was recently released from prison right? Then look at the number of cops killed this year so far. A severe uptick in the stats. Lets not put those two facts together.

    Then take a look at what the state of CA is doing. Releasing an ungodly amount of so-called “Non-Violent” criminals 25k of them or so. Then just think, some of them may travel in an easterly direction. Or as is common find themselves without jobs, and desperate for drugs/money whatever… And just think, the powers that be want us unarmed for fear we may use our weapon… SHEEP..

    The cops that risk their lives everyday have been saying exactly this. If it weren’t for repeat offenders who are let out of prison, their jobs would be much safer.

    • TexasFred says:

      I realize that ANYONE can screw up and go to jail, but I also realize that some come out a lot better for the experience, some CAN be rehabilitated, but not always…

      Repeat offenders have obviously NOT learned a damned thing..

      Maybe California needs to re-open Alcatraz… And put nothing but repeat offenders there, and just leave em to ROT!

  5. I’ve worked with Stanislaus County Sheriff in the past. They were hit with large budget cuts recently, and there is a hate/hate relationship between Sheriff Christianson and the Board of Supervisors, who are more interested in funding welfare than law enforcement. It’s what Christianson has to live with. In his first impromptu press conference in the street following the death of an officer who was also his friend, he clearly stated that due to cuts he can’t protect the citizens any more.

    You could see he was incensed, he was bitter, he was frustrated. And I can’t blame him one bit.

    The PARASITES get funded. The HOSTS have to pay MORE for LESS service because the parasites are busy sucking up time and money via calls for service. And, of course, LE spends more time attending the fuck-ups of the parasites and their skewed lifestyles.

    There’s a national crash coming, folks: what if you called 911 and nobody came because the few cops and firefighters left were already occupied?

    In Obama’s World, he’d want you unarmed and unequipped for emergencies.

    Imagine that. Defenseless and dependent.

      I will never be defenseless and dependent, and neither will you or most of our readers… I don’t dial 9-1-1 here at Casa de Fred, I dial XD-45 Tactical..

      All the city has to worry about is body removal, this my friend, is TEXAS…
