What was Officer Beliso's BMI? At age 34, this event should not occur unless Beliso has a pattern of prodromal indicators such as high BMI, waist measurement beyond 44 inches, Blood work for LDL flagged as too high, HDL flagged as too low, and Triglycerides flagged as too high. If a cluster of the latter findings are in evidence, Stroke and/or heart attack would be expected when under stress such as a foot chase. When a Perp has these conditions and dies during a struggle with LEO's, onlookers blame the LEO's saying, "Cops killed the Perp. That is the nature of post hoc ergo propter hoc.

I don't believe your comment is completely factual. We have AEDs in schools and in athletic facilities, not only because older people or overweight people attend athletic events, but because sometimes unknown conditions exist in otherwise healthy athletes that have nothing to do with any of the above warning indicators. To immediately jump to question Officer Beliso's BMI and then move on to other obesity indicators leads the reader to believe that Officer Beliso must not have taken care of himself. Stating that a stroke or heart attack would "be expected when under stress such as a foot chase" is not real world reality. A large number of police officers would be fearful of exiting their patrol car should high cholesterol and waist size be certain indicators of a stroke or heart attack when under physical stress.

Additionally, my heart goes out to the family of Officer Beliso as they deal with this sudden loss of a husband, father, and son and fellow law enforcement officer in the line of duty.
