bmwmotorcyclewarrior Posted April 30, 2006 Share Posted April 30, 2006 Last night a BMW motorcycle police officer with the Gilbert Police Department (metro Phoenix) was struck by a vehicle who failed to stop for a red signal light. The early investigation reveals the suspect was impaired by alcohol. The motor officer had no chance as there was no preimpact skid and high speeds involved. The suspect's vehicle and the officers BMW caught fire immediately. The driver of the suspect vehicle fled on foot but was located within two hours. I knew the officer, so this impacts home. I believe this is this agency's first in the line of duty death. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I would also like to comment that I know the following comments on this thread will be nothing of support as I have seen in the past on this website. I know at times there are points of discussion involving the law enforcement community on this website. But I have always been impressed of the level of support to law enforcement I have seen here and I just want to know collectively law enforcement appreciates it. It’s really huge that those of us who have identified ourselves as police officers here. That’s because there is typically support of law enforcement and this community is a group of law abiding citizens. This is one of the reasons I purchased a BMW and chose to be part of this community. Link to comment
