So soon

Posted in The Job - General by 200

After posting only yesterday about an American cop killed in the line of duty, another incident today where a police chief and 4 detectives have been shot by a gunman in New Hampshire.

Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney was killed as police tried to serve a search warrant in the town. Four detectives from other departments were shot. The killer, Cullen Mutrie was later found dead in the apartment with the dead body of his girlfriend.

Chief Maloney was head of a very small police department. The 48-year-old was due to retire in two weeks time. Police killings are tragic full stop but how much more that he had almost done his time and was due to hang up his badge and gun in less than 14 days.

So sad.

    I joined the Job in the full expectation that sooner or later I was going to get hurt. I was not disappointed – too many times to conveniently remember.
    I never, however, expected to get killed, although there were a few times…….

    I am so pleased to be retired.
    Commiserations to the injured officers and all the families
