That is very, very sad. He was much too young. It appears when the heart goes at the young of age it is genetic most of the time and nothing can change that. Jeez....live everyday to its fullest...we never know?

32 YEARS OLD. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO YOU OTHER COPS. TAKE CARE.

For Dave, above and all LEOS. As a Forensic Psychologist, and fulltime Prof, I emphasize in my classes that genetics = the seed. Fertilizer, watering, de-bugging insect damage, etc.= environment. LEOS can interdict the heart attack. Avoid donuts, fast food, soda pop, supersizing, Big Mac burgers, bacon and desserts. Take the Real Age Test on the Internet; pay attention to Dr. OZ show; invite wife to do so too. I know what LEOS eat; I attend TREXPO routinely.

I am a police officer and have been one for 24 years now. My heart goes out to this offiers family and the department. Its hard when we lose one of our own. I just wish there was readily available workouts that police officers, especially us older ones that can use that is cfompatible with our shiftwork, and one that allows us to maintain our muscle mass and cardiovascular health.
