Hopefully the injuries on the scumbag who did this will be mortal.

Damn.

RIP, brother.

I spent some time in Rapid City last year. The downtown is very nice, but the area surrounding it seemed pretty ****ty.

I'm not an officer (as in I'm not sure if I should be posting here or not), but if you'd like, I'd be glad to pass along any information or updates in this thread if you all would find that appropriate.


Edit: http://rapidcityjournal.com/ will probably be the most current updates if I don't get to them first.

You are correct. In general, north of the downtown and south of the interstate is probably the tougher part of town.

Ugh.

One of my good friends at our department (I was in a OIS with him and lots of other hell) moved with his wife and kids and went to work for Rapid PD. He just came back this month because he couldn't handle the paycut and for personal reasons.

He is on vacation at the moment, and will be devastated to hear this if he hasn't already.

I don't look forward to this phone call.

I want to relate the only good news in this tragedy - the third officer who was shot a week ago walked out of the hospital under his own power today.

For those that read the whole article may have noticed that one car wrecked out on the way to the scene. Remember: YOU CAN'T HELP IF YOU DON'T GET THERE!

Sorry for bumping this. Last time. But, I didn't know if anything could be learned from the DCI report to help anyone in the future.

Story about the report:
http://rapidcityjournal.com/news/dci-report-man-who-killed-police-officers-spoke-of-suicide/article_5a69a2d6-ce12-11e0-ad80-001cc4c002e0.html

Raw report:
http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/rapidcityjournal.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/3/7e/37e80150-cdd9-11e0-bb53-001cc4c002e0/4e542ce512a71.pdf.pdf

Chief of police comments (basically):
http://rapidcityjournal.com/allender-shots-that-killed-officers-were-horrible-piece-of-bad/article_4ff465c0-ce12-11e0-8861-001cc4c002e0.html

Sounds like they did everything right by the book. Missed both BP vests on both officers on the left side (armpit area I presume) by inches or less. Man oh man. Sad.

RIP.

Only bright spot, third officer returned to work:
