WEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -
39-year-old Patrick O'Rourke is West Bloomfield's first police officer killed in the line of duty. The husband and father of four young children was gunned down on the job.
The suspect, 50-year-old Ricky Nelson Coley, was found dead inside his home after a standoff that lasted many hours.
We've also learned that Coley was under investigation by the U.S. Labor Department and was accused of misusing more than $300,000.

So we have a corrupt executive gets caught and loses it and a police officer trying to help him loses his life. Please take a moment and pray for those close to him. Officer O'Rourke is the first officer killed in the line of duty in the history of the department.

Apparently Coley was under investigation for transferring $300,000 that was supposed too be used for employee insurance to himself.
I am so sick of this greed and corruption at the top everywhere.

Just imagine how much goes unnoticed.

Imagine what simple honesty could do for this country.


"Lt. Timothy Diamond said O'Rourke was part of a team of four or five police who responded to a 911 call that a man had tried to kill himself or needed medical attention. They called the man's name as they climbed the stairs to the second floor and "were met by shots fired through the bedroom door and the drywall," Diamond said."-wdiv.com

1500 that is amazing.



RCMP spokesman Sgt. Tim Shields said: “Individual officers believe that their attendance at this Memorial Service will represent the support of an entire Force, and an entire profession, for the family of the fallen officers.”
