A Colorado Springs (Colo.) Police Department officer died Tuesday afternoon when his police motorcycle collided with another vehicle.
Matthew Tyner, a 13-year agency veteran, was a member of the Specialized Enforcement Motorcycle Unit. He was riding his motorcycle and conducting traffic enforcement when he collided with a vehicle on Austin Bluffs Parkway near Oro Blanco Drive.
"Today proved to be devastating to the Colorado Springs Police Department," Chief Pete Carey told the Gazette.

It's very sad when another officer dies, but an execution is stopped. There is something very wrong in this country when more officers die a year than inmates executed. When we get to the point when there is more criminals executed than officers dying every year, then we are getting somewhere.
