Officer down

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Thoughts tonight with the family, friends & colleagues of Constable Ronan Kerr of the Police service of Northern Ireland, who has been murdered by cowardly scum in Northern Ireland.

The 25-year-old officer was at the start of his career having just completed training. He got into his car outside his home in Omagh when a bomb detonated killing him.

PSNI Chief Constable, matt Baggott, said: “We have lost one of our brave and courageous police recruits, someone who joined this fine service simply to do good, joined to serve the community impartially. Tonight is one of the most sombre and saddest evenings of my service, tonight tragedy has returned to Omagh. I have no words to describe the awfulness of the events of this afternoon and my abhorrence and anger at this wasted life.”
