Rookie police officer shot dead on her first day on the job

A newly sworn-in police officer on her first shift with a US police department was shot and killed after attending a call about an argument.

Officers received a call around 5:30 Saturday evening in Woodbridge, Virginia about a “verbal argument,” Sgt. Jonathan Perok, spokesman of the Prince William County Police Department, said. It’s not clear how the altercation between the suspect and the police began but the suspect, a military serviceman, is in custody and was not injured, he said. Two other officers were also injured.

    Wait until they are 50% of the army and someone has to tells their daughters that mommy isn’t coming home any more because muslims kidnapped her raped her 24/7 and the beheaded her as they praised allah .

    Reading another account it sounded to me as if the accused was waiting for the police. Like an ambush…

    somebodies mom, daughter, lover , killed when placed in a position that she was not cut out for, just sad that is all.

    • I’m not sure that women can’t be cops. Front line soldiers, okay, probably not, but cops? Are you sure she would have survived if she’d been a man?

      Sometimes horrible things just happen.

        Sorry but having about 16 years experience in law enforcement, I disagree. I would however add that due to affirmative action quotas ( yes they call them targets instead) there are also plenty of visible minority men who are no better. I am not suggesting that all visible minority men would be unqualified, but the ones I witnessed hired due to the quotas were clearly not.

        • I’m not sure what you’re arguing with.

            Simple really. When people are hired based on identity politics (affirmative action) instead of qualifications, there is never a good end result. This applies to law enforcement, the military and actually every other job.
