Sgt. Harold Preston

End of Watch. One Houston police officer killed, another wounded in shooting; suspect and suspect’s son also shot

The two were shot at an apartment complex Tuesday morning.

The chief said Sgt. Preston was surrounded by family before he succumbed to his injuries. He served as a police officer for 41 years.

“We lave lost a wonderful human being,” the police chief said.

Even though Sgt. Preston was black, don’t expect Black Lives Matter to take notice. Or the media, or the Left in general to take notice. Doesn’t serve the narrative.

That is a small, but not meaningless bit of work on my part, so it will continue for a VERY short time.)


Sergeant Matt Ratana – London Constable

End of Watch, International Edition. Police Sergeant Shot Dead at Police Station in London

Police named the victim as 54-year-old Matt Ratana, a custody sergeant who was originally from the Hawke’s Bay area of New Zealand. A former London Irish rugby player, he had been in the London police force since 1991.

Much is being made of the details, and how can gun crime happen in gun-free London, but the story should be about the dead Sergeant.

Police said the incident occurred at about 2:15 a.m. while the man was being detained at the Croydon Custody Centre, where arrested suspects are processed. The officer was treated at the scene for injuries but died in hospital.

The 23-year-old suspect is thought to have then turned the gun on himself.

The bad guy did not manage to kill himself.
