    Memphis Police Officer Critically Injured

    Pushed off bleachers while stopping fight

    By Jody Callahan

    A Memphis police officer was critically injured Thursday afternoon in an altercation with a student at Fairley High.

    About 2:10 p.m., two students began fighting during a Christmas program in the Fairley gym.

    Officer Kedzie White, who is stationed at the Whitehaven school, moved to break up the fight, but was pushed off the bleachers, police spokesman Sgt. Vince Higgins said.

    White fell -- investigators aren't sure how far -- and hit his head.

    The 16-year veteran of the Memphis police was taken to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, where he was stabilized in critical condition.

    "We don't know what he struck his head on, but he was rendered unconscious," Higgins said. "Right now, we're just concerned about his condition."

    An unidentified 16-year-old Fairley student was taken into custody, but hadn't been charged late Thursday, Higgins said.

    The student was treated at Methodist South Hospital for injuries received in the fight, Higgins said.

    "Because the incident involved a police officer and there will be an investigation, we don't have a comment," said Vince McCaskill, Memphis City Schools spokesman.

    That is why Tasers are so worth it especially if you are within that 25' distance. Shoot the little shit bet that brings his ass down to you. At the same time though I have found if you just pull the Taser out and turn it on you get their attention really quick and they begin to comply.

    Will how is the officer doing? Hope all things on the home front are going well with him and his family.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
