Gosh, another LEO just doing his job, shot and kI'll ed in the line of duty. This is truly heart wrenching. Seems as though we see this more and more these days. Sadly.

Well wishes and prayers to the officers family and friends. ...

Looks like this thread is 2 words short of a sentence as in 2 sandwiches short of a picnic.

So now threads can be created purely upon its title; awesome.
EDIT. Tech difficulties - classic

ok well now that thats out of the way. A tragic event, on the job hazard.


According to Seaside police, the officer is a 39-year-old man who has been with the department for 13 years.

A second officer nearby returned fire, hitting the suspect, police said. The suspect was taken to the hospital. The suspect's condition is unknown.


Now the son of a gun suspect will have murder added to his sentence. Although, if he croaks in the hospital it will be best for all, especially the tax payer. Kudos to the other officer for acting quickly to stop this killer.

So I should stop and give sympathy to a cop that knows full well the hazards of his job, yet ignore the hundreds of innocents killed by police each year over petty things?

Seems legit.

Or you could just skip over it and go on about your day.

Choices and such.

Storie's been updated.

Seaside police have identified the officer as 39-year-old Jason Gooding, a 13-year veteran of the department.

A second officer nearby returned fire, hitting the suspect, police said. The suspect was taken to the hospital where he later died.

No trial necessary.

Now that right there is a mission accomplished! It still sucks the first officer had to go out like that, but as I said occupational hazard.

Any updates on what the original arrest warrant was?? If the guy was a high risk, usually the SWAT goes in with a no-knock dont they??

ok here is what I get from their Department Press release


Seaside, Ore. – February 6, 2016 –
On February 5, 2016 at 9:22 PM Seaside Sergeant Jason M. Goodding and an additional Seaside police officer made contact with Phillip Ferry, age 55, from Seaside. Ferry was walking down Broadway and was known by the officers to have a warrant for his arrest. Sergeant Goodding and the other officer attempted to place Ferry under arrest for the felony assault warrant. Ferry resisted arrest and the other officer deployed less lethal force (taser). Ferry fired a shot and struck Sergeant Goodding. The other Seaside police officer returned fire and shot Ferry.

Both Sergeant Goodding and Ferry were transported to local hospitals. Sergeant Goodding and Ferry died at the hospitals due to their injuries.


So see here, the good officers tried and do it the right way first without resorting to shoot first. Those tasers can take down damn near anything. Did they fail, or was he on drugs?? Well we will have to wait for the investigation to complete to find out why the tasers failed to achieve the normal results. Or its possible that since they are in Oregon in winter, his clothes were too thick for the barbs to make contact.

RIP dude, you were a good guy.

That's the part that really sucks.

In many police shooting events it is perceived that the LEO overreacted and shot the victim/perpetrator when they could have used non-lethal force. Here's a case where these officers were trying to do it the right way. And for their trouble one of them is dead.

A law enforcement officer has the occupational risk of being killed. But, I'm sure that's not necessarily something they just take in stride. Every time they see or hear something like this it drives home the point that at the end of the day, there is the real possibility they may not go home to their families. While I don't see this as justification for many of the questionable shootings that have happened recently, it does remind us that these are people who have the same self-preservation instincts as the rest of us.
