By his own hand
On wednesday night i saw my partner of eight years dead in his car. He retired last year. Throughout my career,this is the 7th NYPD officer that i knew personally that ended thier lives. This one really hit me hard, I cant stop the tears. He was very depressed over a divorce he was going through as well as other problems he was facing.He was such a great guy, always helpful and always joking around. I spoke to him very often during the past 7 months while he was going through this ordeal whether it was at 3pm or 3am i always answered my phone when i knew it was him..Getting him help didnt seen to work, although he did try. I will never forget what i saw that night. I have much more to say about this incident but am to upset to go on tonight....Please say a prayer for him and his kids
R.I.P my friend.....

I am really sorry to read about your friend, ghost. I am so sorry that your partner didn't seek professional help. Prayers go out to you and his family and all of the NYPD.The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” – Jeff Cooper'

Thoughts and prayers are with you.
As John Taylor said "While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil."In memory of Carlos Borland.
Trooper Borland was shot and killed when he stopped a car on I-80, just outside of Lovelock, Nevada, whose driver was wanted for not paying for gasoline. Unbeknownst to Trooper Borland, the suspect had just murdered two people in Texas and the vehicle was stolen. Before stopping the vehicle Trooper Borland had requested a check on the plates, but the plates had not yet been entered into NCIC. As he approached the vehicle the man pulled out a .38 caliber handgun and shot him in the head.
The suspect was apprehended later that day. He was convicted of Trooper Borland's murder and sentenced to death.
Trooper Borland had served with the agency for 1 year.
BE SAFE COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL WITH ALL YOUR CONTACTS, AND ALWAYS HAVE A BACK-UP PLAN ON HOW TO KILL THEM.
