HORRIBLE: Two Rookie Female Officers Shot And Killed Within Two Days….
When it comes to police officers people just don’t understand sometimes how they have one of the most dangerous and subtly nerve wracking jobs that could possibly exist.
Sure, you and I might have a job where we might have a stressful day. Very few people have jobs where they know that when they clock in for work that they might just not clock out.
I also remember when I had to take my son to the emergency room when we were on vacation a few years ago and I was totally lost after spending several hours at the hospital.
I stopped at a Burger King and saw a cop that was ordering lunch and asked him what the nearest way back to the interstate was. He told me to wait and then came out to the car.
This officer actually drove us all the way out to the exit. He didn’t have to do that. I think of people like that officer and it brings a tear to my eyes whenever I hear about an officer being taken down,.
Two female rookie police officers were shot and killed this week, police confirm.
Police in Shreveport, Louisiana, confirmed Thursday that a 22-year-old officer, identified as Chateri Payne, was shot and killed outside a home as she was leaving for the night shift, KALB-TV reported.
Payne had graduated from the academy on Nov. 16 and was dressed in uniform when she was killed.
There was a child inside the home at the time of the shooting, Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond said during a news conference, but he’s unsure whether the child saw anything.
Raymond is also unsure of the motive.
A suspect was detained for questions but not arrested.
“Long days, aching nights, but I decided to stand tall on my dream,” Payne wrote in a Facebook post after graduation, according to KALB. “It is an honor to be able to join such a powerful family with my brothers and sisters in blue. May the journey begin.”
Just a day later, rookie Officer Natalie Corona was shot and killed while on duty responding to a three-car crash in Northern California, the Associated Press reported.
Corona, 22, was alone investigating the accident around 7 p.m. local time when an unidentified gunman opened fire.
