    I am so sorry for the loss of another police officer!!! It doesn’t matter what part of the nation they are in, ANY officer who dies leaves a hole in the lives of those left behind! We just Had the 1 year anniversary of a Kalamazoo Police officer on April 18. He was the first officer killed in the line of duty in over 100 years. I send all my sympathy and prayers to Brian’s wife and children.
