Domestic violence call... why was he alone? Why is any officer alone in today’s world?
Saw that right off. Everybody knows that the domestic calls are the worst ones.
Police scanner for the County http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/2305
Bingo!!! My thoughts exactly.
Cannot figger out the scanner link
Not that liberals give a poop.
According to Twitter the officer died in the ER.
May the officer RIP.
RIP, brave officer (our thin Blue line).
Sorry. For future reference, I normally just look for the scanner on that page that has the most listeners.
Sometimes back-up simply is not available.
Happened many times to me back in the late 70’s as a police officer in Texas.
“.......why was he alone? Why is any officer alone in todayâs world?”......
Simple answer, budget cuts. Instead of hiring more police officers, more than likely the funds are directed towards the “welfare” of the “gimmedats” street rats.
