White Plains (NY) Officer Dies in Line of Duty After Chasing Suspect
White Plains Officer Dies in Line of Duty After Chasing Suspect
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- A police officer who arrested a mall shoplifting suspect after a foot chase in White Plains has collapsed and died.
Authorities say Michael Perry was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after arresting the suspect in downtown White Plains on Saturday afternoon. Perry was 43. The cause of death was unknown.
White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong says Perry's death has shocked the police department to "the very core." He says it was the first line-of-duty death for the department in 60 years.
Perry was an over seven-year veteran with the White Plains police. He is survived by his wife and 6-year-old twin sons.
Authorities say Perry ran after the 53-year-old suspect after he allegedly stole merchandise from a Macy's at a downtown mall.

My Condolences. Probably a heart attack.
We had a guy that was a level 1 reserve in my city's PD that collapsed at home while getting ready for work. He was between two shifts that he was covering in addition to his own. Perfect health otherwise. Heart attack at 52. I guess God needed him more.

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.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
