    I am sorry she died. But, she didn’t die “in the line of duty”. She was driving a police vehicle when she lost control and crashed. More bs from our guv’ner

      If she was on duty when the crash occurred she was killed in the line of duty. That’s the way it works.

    NO, she took a job now shes dead. would the flags go to half staff for anyone else? no. cops are not above us or more important than us. she probably spent her career jailing non violent offenders and sitting on her ass….. like an iowa cop.

      You are a worthless P.O.S. talking about a dead officer that way. You will change your mind real fast when you need help.

        What help can officers provide? youre aware the vast majority of the time they show up after the bad things happen, right? youre a pos for thinking cops have your back. they just came out and reinforced the statement that they are not responsible for your safety or mine or anyone else’s. you just blindly support them because youre a stupid person with no ability to think for yourself. just because they are cops does not make them special or abbove us or anything else they are just people with jobs, their job by and large is to file reports about the aftermath of violent situations or to fight a war on drugs the majority of the country does not back. police are nothing but enforcers for politicians. there are good people in uniform, i never said otherwise you stupid b*tch. but cops arent gods among men. they are just people who chose a job. the fact is its a dangerous one and death is to be expected in a percentage of cases. gimme a break ill be cryoing when i need help? i have literally never needed the police for anything, ever. niether do the majority of people who call them in this town. go to hell.

          Where on earth did you get such a negative view on life? And such vile comments only reinforce that observation.

          What happened to civil debate?

          In any event, how is a police officer supposed to know when a violation of the law is going to occur?

          Until we have an officer on every corner, crime will exist in such numbers that the Departments are overwhelmed.

          Indeed, we have a segment of society today that cares not for the safety and welfare of others. They care not for the pillars of what made our country great. They hold disdain for authority figures. They snub their noses at civil behavior.

          Blame what ever you like, be it alcoholism, drug abuse, or mental health issues that are not diagnosed.

          Finally, most of the officers I know, not only treat what they do as mere jobs, but serving the public. For this, they get shot at, beaten up, spit upon, and denigrated. How would you like it if someone marched into your office or workplace and did that on a regular basis? Now the shoe is on the other foot.
