    Young officer down.

    Officer Robert Langley was a four-year veteran of the University Police Department.





    UM Police Officer Killed During Traffic Stop
    First UPD Officer Killed in Line of Duty

    10/21/2006

    OXFORD, Miss. -- A University of Mississippi police officer was killed early Saturday morning while conducting a traffic stop near the university campus.

    Officer Robert Langley, 30, had stopped a vehicle for speeding when the driver suddenly pulled away, dragging him approximately 200 yards. Langley suffered severe head injuries and was taken by helicopter to the Medical Center in Memphis where he was pronounced dead.

    Within 30 minutes of the incident, Oxford Police detained 20-year-old Daniel Cummings, a second-year UM student from Germantown , Tenn. Cummings has been charged with capital murder of police officer and is being held in the Lafayette County Detention Center .

    A four-year veteran of the University Police Department, Langley had returned in April from serving with the National Guard in Afghanistan . He is survived by his wife Lisa, two sons and two stepdaughters.

    "There are no words to describe the heartache we feel. This is a tragedy for so many people in so many ways, and our hearts are grieving for Officer Langley's family," said Chancellor Robert Khayat. "He served his country when it needed him and, like police officers everywhere, he was dedicated to making our communities safe. This is a tragic event for us all."

    The incident is the first death in the line of duty for a University of Mississippi police officer, said UPD Chief Jeffrey VanSlyke.

    "We are a small department and something like this hits everyone very hard," said VanSlyke. "Every law enforcement officer knows the potential danger every time they go to work. Robert Langley was a devoted father, a respected police officer. He was our brother."

    Rest in peace, brother.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    What is wrong with people?!

    When they throw that sorry POS in jail, they should have a 6' x 6' blow up of the ticket he would have gotten on the wall, just to remind him of what would have happened if he'd obeyed the law.

    R. I. P brother we have your watch now.
    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)

    so sad to hear this...
    thoughts are with those who knew and loved him
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
