This is how the ABC News website ran it this morning:
A New Orleans police officer was found shot dead in his marked patrol car this morning, city officials said.
The shooting was reported around 7 a.m., the New Orleans Police Department said in a news release. The victim’s car rolled forward and struck a curb after the shooting.
The officer’s name has not been released, but the New Orleans police identified the victim as a 45-year-old man who worked as a Housing Authority police officer.
A Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) police officer “Investigates complaints, maintains order, aids individuals, and identifies criminal offenders,” according to a summary of the position on hano.org. The officers also perform “unplanned physical tasks which include the restraining of violent individuals, running, climbing fences and responding to EMS and rescue emergencies. Officers must handle gun belts,” the summary said.
The officer had been a member of the HANO Police Department since 2013, according to the police press release. The police department declined to comment further.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said in a statement: “The death of this HANO police officer is an unspeakable tragedy, and a vile and cowardly act. Tragedies that involve our men and women in uniform affect our entire city and touch every member of our law enforcement community. We are deeply saddened by this loss, and our hearts and prayers are with the officer’s friends and family and with the entire HANO family during this very difficult time.
Of course this wasn’t a tragedy at all, it was a cold-blooded murder, which liberals sometimes seem to confuse with things like influenza epidemics and train wrecks.
At least Massah Mayor Mitch Landrieu got the “vile and cowardly” part right, though.
It’s almost as though someone were inciting these latest attacks on the men and women who pin bulls eyes over their hearts everyday and go to work for us…
Funny, wasn’t the President just saying something about that, the other day…?
No, that’s the “driving while black” one. I was thinking of the one where he supported our men and women in blue…
No, that’s not it…
In Memory of Those Who Have Fallen…
