RIP-Maricopa County Sheriffs Deputy William Coleman Shot And Killed

Stolen From Wake Up America

Condolences to the Coleman family.

Via Southwest Border Sheriffs:

A Maricopa County Sheriff's deputy was slain early Sunday after a burgary suspect opened fire at him at an Anthem medical plaza, sheriff's deputies said.
The burglary suspect, whose name was not released, was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy after he opened fire, according to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Deputy William Coleman, 50, a 20-year veteran, the first deputy killed since 1995, was one of three who responded just after 4 a.m. Sunday to a report of a burglary in progress on Anthem Way just east of I-17, Arpaio said.

"Unfortunately, one of our deputies was killed in the line of today," Arpaio said. "It is extremely sad, for everyone. He was an excellent officer."

As Fred has often stated, too many times lately, "the thin blue continues to grow thinner."

The are the men and women who try their best to keep us safe and we owe them so much.

The scum of OWS loathe our finest who walk, ride and patrol the street so losers like OSW can be free to vilify the ones who protect them, it makes me sick.

Prayers and thoughts go out to the family and all law enforcement, and big thank you.
