    Modesto, CA PD officer down

    This happened just a few miles from me. Many years ago.

    Sgt May has been suffering from injuries from this collision for many years. At least he is now at peace and not suffering anymore. I have been expecting this for a long time but I guess there was some type of brain activity until now. The area in which this incident happened, better known as the Airport District, is a known high risk crime, drug, and gang infested area.

    My condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the fallen. May Sgt May rest in peace. As for the suspect, he died in the collision. Another son of perdition in hell.

    Sergeant Steven May, Modesto Police Department

    Sergeant May remained never regain consciousness and succumbed from his injuries seven years later.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
