    "Police Officer Accidentally Shot By Fellow Officers"
    A police officer was accidentally shot to death by his fellow officers in Bowling Green Kentucky. Police responded to a call Tuesday of a man threatening a woman with a knife. After they arrived on the scene, police say the suspect tried to attack Officer David Whitson with 2 knives. The other officers opened fire, striking both the suspect and Officer Whitson. Both the suspect and Officer Whitson died as a result of their wounds. Whitson had been with the department for 8 years, working in patrol. He was married with 2 children.

    R.I.P bro we have your watch now

    To your family and friends our prayers are with you.
    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)

    I went to college at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, and I have been to training at our Criminal Justice Training Center with several BGPD officers. When I was at Western, I dealt with the officers of BGPD a few times and they were always great people. In fact, they are the reason that I chose LE as a career. My roommate went on some ride a longs with them and told me how cool and exciting the job was. Then, I was interviewed by BGPD when a guy in our dorm had been shooting out his window at cars in the parking lot.

    My heart goes out to all the officers and their families.
