    A rookie Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper was shot and killed by a suspect with a trooper's gun Wednesday night.

    Arizona Trooper Tyler Edenhofer was shot and killed by a suspect with a trooper's gun and another trooper was wounded Wednesday night.



    The troopers struggled with the suspect as two Goodyear police officers arrived at the scene to help take the suspect into custody. During the struggle, Arizona Department of Public Safety Colonel Frank Milstead said the suspect got control of a trooper's gun and fired at least two shots from the weapon. One of the shots hit Dorris in the shoulder while another shot struck Edenhofer, killing him. "I'm incredibly proud of the men and women who show up to do this job every day. They're brave enough to come out and face the unknown," Milstead told reporters Thursday morning.


    Edenhofer graduated from the Academy in May and was an officer in training. Funeral arrangements are pending.

    Fort Myers police officer succumbs to wounds a week after shot on duty...

    Fort Myers police officer dies a week after shot on duty
    July 29,`18 -- A Florida police officer died Saturday, a week after he was shot while attempting to apprehend a suspect, the Fort Myers Police Department said Sunday.
    "It is with a heavy heart that we inform our community that Ft. Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller has passed away as a result of the injuries sustained on Saturday, July 21st. Please continue to pray for Officer Jobbers-Miller's family, friends and our entire FMPD Family," the department wrote on Twitter. Jobbers-Miller was in critical condition since last Saturday after he was shot in the head while pursuing Wisner Desmaret, a suspect in a reported theft, the Fort Myers News-Press reported. Jobbers-Mille, 29,r had been serving with the Fort Myers Police Department since September 2015 and previously worked as a volunteer firefighter for Fire Co. 2 in Wayne, N.J.



    Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller died on Saturday, a week after he was shot in the head while pursuing a suspect.




    "When Adam joined in 2009, it was an honor being his chief and to watch him grow into such a devoted, dedicated firefighter," Fire Co. 2 Chief John Gabriel said during a vigil at the firehouse. A GoFundMe campaign to assist Jobbers-Miller's family had gathered $65,182 as of Sunday afternoon and the police department shared a schedule of fundraisers launched by several local businesses. "It's a very low time right now for our city and for the Miller family," Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson said. "We need to stay intensely focused on the family and their support. This will serve as a reminder to us all -- first responders, law enforcement officers face these challenges every day. We love them and respect them and at this time we embrace all of them."


    Florida Gov. Rick Scott also offered his condolences to Jobbers-Miller's family. "Our hearts are heavy to learn of the passing of Officer Jobbers-Miller," he said. "Police officers like Adam Jobbers-Miller put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. My wife, Ann, and I are praying for his family and everyone in the entire Lee County law enforcement community this evening." Desmaret was also injured in the encounter and is being held in police custody at Lee Memorial Hospital, but has yet to be arrested. Before the shooting he had been facing eight felonies, including attempted first-degree murder.

    Mass. police officer shot and killed; 3 cops hurt in Mo.
    July 15,`18 -- A police officer and a bystander were shot and killed in Massachusetts as authorities pursued a vandalism and erratic driving suspect Sunday.
    Authorities said Michael Chesna, 42, was fatally shot while attempting to arrest a suspect, identified as 20-year-old Emanuel Lopes around 7:30 a.m. Chesna was pursing Lopes with his gun drawn when Lopes struck him with a rock, took the officer's gun and shot him multiple times, according to authorities. Chesna was taken to South Shore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Additional officers continued to pursue Lopes through the neighborhood as he fired Chesna's gun again and killed an elderly woman in her home.


    Officers eventually shot Lopes in the leg and he is expected to survive. He will be arraigned Monday on two counts of murder. Also Sunday, police in Missouri shot and killed a man suspected of shooting three police officers and was a person of interest in the death of a University of Missouri-Kansas City student. Two of the officers were shot while working undercover to search for the murder suspect at the Sky-Vu Motel at 12:15 p.m., Kansas City police spokesman Sgt. Jacob Becchina said. Both officers were rushed to a hospital with non-ife-threatening injuries.


    The shooting suspect fled the area with another person, who was found with the vehicle shortly afterward and arrested. Officers were then called to the area of 30th and Topping Avenue where they exchanged gunfire with the suspect. The suspect was killed and a third officer was injured by gunfire and taken to a hospital after the exchange. The officer's condition wasn't immediately known.

    NYPD Union Wants to Keep Cop Killers Behind Bars for Life...

    NYPD Union Wants to Keep Cop Killers Behind Bars for Life
    AUG. 9, 2018 - Flanked by dozens who lost loved ones in the line of duty, NYPD Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch called on the state to revise parole guidelines so those convicted of killing officers are no longer eligible to leave prison.
    PBA president Pat Lynch said Tuesday that the current framework used by the parole board does not put as much weight on what crime an applicant committed, which the PBA argues will provide those convicted of killing on-duty officers a better shot at making parole. Lynch said prisons currently house 59 convicted cop killers who were sentenced when life without parole and the death penalty were not options for judges, which means they may one day be eligible for parole. Lynch highlighted the case of Salvatore DeSarno, who was convicted of killing Officer Cecil Sledge in 1980, and will be up for parole next month. The union leader said it was appalling that DeSarno could be released into the public. “The parole guidelines must be codified to prevent this from happening,” he said.



    Flanked by dozens who lost loved ones in the line of duty, NYPD Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch called on the state to revise parole guidelines so those convicted of killing officers are no longer eligible to leave prison.




    Sledge’s widow, Linda Sledge, held back tears as she pleaded for the parole board not to release DeSarno, who was convicted of shooting Sledge during a traffic stop and driving off while dragging Sledge’s body. She said that DeSarno was on parole when he was pulled over on Jan. 28, 1980. “It is difficult for me to even imagine how any right thinking person could consider for a second letting Sal DeSarno back onto our streets,” Linda Sledge said. A spokesman for the state Department of Corrections said the parole board considers several factors before making their decisions, including the severity of the crime and statements from victims’ families. The union claims the department needs Gov. Andrew Cuomo to authorize changes to its policies. “Where is your humanity?” Lynch said, while noting Cuomo has not taken steps to change the parole process.


    Tyrone Stevens, a spokesman for the governor’s office, said a convicted person’s prison term cannot be changed after they are sentenced. “The governor and the legislature were responsible for reforms in 2011 that strengthened New York’s parole system, and further, the governor proposed determinate sentencing two years ago but that effort was rejected by the legislature,” he said in a statement. Besides pushing for a new parole board framework, Lynch said the PBA plans to legally challenge the parole board’s decision to grant parole in April to Herman Bell, who served 40 years in prison for killing two officers in Harlem.

    This should be the case for all murders. Otherwise this is just a political stunt and a title of nobility.
