  • RIP North St Paul Officer

    http://www.kare11.com/news/news_arti...3854&catid=391

    NORTH ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A North St. Paul police officer was shot and killed and a Maplewood police officer was shot and injured Monday morning.

    Maplewood deputy chief David Kvam told KARE 11 that the officers were responding to a call around 8:30 a.m. at a North St. Paul apartment building about a violation of a protection order. It was a North St. Paul call but the Maplewood officer came out to help because the North St. Paul officer was alone.

    Authorities say there was some sort of scuffle and shots were fired. The North St. Paul officer was killed. The suspect was also shot and killed.

    The Maplewood officer is a female and is expected to recover.

    We will have more information as it becomes available on kare11.com and KARE 11 News at 5, 6, and 10 p.m.

        I believe names were being held pending notification of family members. KSTP said that there will be a news conference at 4 this afternoon, maybe they will be released then?

            My prayers also go out to these officers' families. We as officers take our jobs, and the implied dangers, for granted sometimes. Our families, however, do not. It is a situation in which no family member of a law enforcement officer wishes to be placed and have to endure.

            KARE11 is reporting that the Maplewood officer came to assist because the North St. Paul officer was working alone. How does a department of about 17 officers only have 1 officer working at that time of the evening? I know cities half that size that have 2-3 working at a time. I certainly hope that staffing levels, budgets and other political BS do not end up playing a part in this officer's tragic death.

              "A Part of America Died"

              Somebody killed a policeman today,

              and part of America died.

              A piece of our country he swore to protect,

              will be buried with him at his side.

              The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,

              with counsel demanding his rights.

              While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,

              and spend many long, lonely nights.

              The beat that he walked was a battle field too,

              just as if he'd gone off to war.

              Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,

              to his name they will add a gold star.

              Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,

              in your town or mine.

              While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,

              a cop put his life on the line.

              Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,

              and he stands at each new rookie's side.

              He answered the call,

              of himself gave his all,

              And A Part of America Died.

                The officer has been identified as 57-year-old Richard Crittenden, a nine-year veteran of the North St. Paul Police Department.

                I don't think they've released the name of the injured Maplewood officer, but the news said she was shot in the wrist, treated and released. She is a 10 1/2-year veteran.

                RIP brother Rick...

                  May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with both families. I pray they find comfort.
                  If you don't know what to do, you better look like you know what you are doing, and you better do something.

                    I saw my mom after work today and she broke down and cried in my arms. She's never done that before and I had no idea why at first.

                    Guys, remember to hug your family every chance you can get and to kiss your wife (or husband) and kids every single day.

                    Rest in peace brother....be safe out there.

                      "A Policeman was killed last night"

                      A policeman was killed last night.
                      He died while protecting your rights.
                      His creed was to protect and serve.
                      This fate he didn't deserve.

                      A mom and dad have lost a son.
                      So many other jobs he could've done.
                      His wife and kids are left alone.
                      Their daddy won't be coming home.

                      His fellow officers are hurt so deep.
                      For a fallen brother they weep.
                      The morning paper will print a story.
                      About a policeman who died in glory.

                      The flags will fly at half mast.
                      Politicians and citizens will seem sad.
                      The funeral is tomorrow at noon.
                      It will all be over very soon.

                      By next week they will have forgot.
                      That a policeman was killed last night

                        1+...many yrs ago when i was a civi, my sgt said no one really cares. in the end the family and friends r the ones to suffer the loss...

                        the political scum bags will use it for thier benefit and the civies will pretend to care, for awhile at least
