A very sad story from across the Pond today regarding 4-year NYPD cop Philip Chlanda.
The officer was on duty in the early hours of this morning when he called home during a meal break. He saw posts on his girlfriend’s Facebook page which led him to believe she might leave him. They had an argument, then Chlanda left the flat he shared with his girlfriend. They continued arguing near the officer’s patrol car.
Then Chlanda, who was in uniform, took out his service weapon & shot himself in the head. He died as a result of his injuries.
A spokesman for the NYPD said Chalnda had an unblemished record with no issues.
What a waste.
