Tragedy in Greenland
posted at 4/13/2012 7:21 AM EDT
Police Chief Michael Maloney was killed last night while attempting to carry out a search warrant at a known drug house. Four other officers..all part of a combined task force, were injured, two remain in intensive care.
While it's sometimes easy to question and criticize law enforcement, especially considering the events in Sanford FL., we should all remember that the majority of these brave men and women put their lives on the line every single day to make our society safer for all.
Greenland NH is a small..close knit community not far from UNH and Chief Maloney was only 8 days away from retirement.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Maloney family as well as the family of all the officers injured.
