GOD BLESS THE TROOPER THAT PASSED AND HIS PARTNER WHO I PRAY WAS NOT SERIOUSLY INJURED. AS A PEACE OFFIVER IN LOS ANGELES FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND HAVE WITNESSED AND ASSISTED IN NUMEROUS TA'S, I LEARNED LOOKIE LOUS KILL AND INJURE MORE OFFICERS IN MY OPINION THAN ANY OTHER INCIDENTS. YOU TROOPERS OUT THERE AND ANY OFFICER OUT THERE WANTING TO SAVE LIVES, PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR THOSE DRIVERS THAT JUST CAN'T RESIST TAKING THEIR EYES OFF THE ROAD TO SEE SOME GORE AND WHAT YOUR DOING AND END UP BECOMING A GOOD PART OF THE PROBLEM. PLEASE ALWAYS THINK ABOUT GOING HOME AT EOW AND TAKE EVERY PRECAUTION TO PREVENT BECOMING A NAME ON THE WALL OF ANOTHER OFFICER WHO GAVE HIS LIFE TO SAVE OTHERS. GOD BLESS ALL PUBLIC SERVENTS.

Prayers to Trooper Dees' family on their loss and prayers for Trooper Burch on a speedy and full recovery. My prayers are with both families and the Oklahoma Troopers as their extended family. A tragic loss.
