Another Cop Dies In Car Crash

Lately, there has rash of accidents int he U.S. that have killed police officers while on duty.  the lartest occured today, in Milwaukee, WI>.
From jsonline:  Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Sergio Aleman died of injuries he suffered Tuesday in a two-vehicle crash in the southbound lanes of I-43 near Juneau Blvd., authorities said.
Sheriff's Inspector Edward Bailey said Aleman was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, where he was pronounced dead. The crash resulted in no other serious injuries, said Fran McLaughlin, speaking for the department.
"On behalf of the 1,200 men and women of the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, our thoughts and prayers are with Deputy Sheriff Aleman's family," Bailey said at a news conference.
Aleman was in a sheriff's pickup truck that provides service to disabled motorists, among other things.
The crash occurred at 12:17 p.m. and closed the southbound lanes of I-43 and one northbound lane of the interstate. The closure was expected to continue through rush hour into the evening as the Wisconsin State Patrol investigated the crash.  http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/sb-43-closed-for-a-time-due-to-crash-vn6akmg-164457996.html
In Las Vegas, we have these kind of trucks except they are run as a private business through NDOT.   In the past 6 years, there has not been a serious accident involving these trucks.
On the Officer Memorial Page, there have been 10 line of duty deaths for the month of July, which is way too many.  Some were assaulted while others just crashed their vehicles.
RIP Sheriff Deputy Aleman.


  1. RIP Sheriff Deputy Aleman.

    His family can apply for car accident whiplash compensation to get relief on the behalf of Sheriff. It may help them somehow to run their living.

  2. Dude, did you even read the story or even your first sentence? The guy died and he will not be getting whiplash compensation.
    I edit a lot of 3rd party commentators who only want to advertise via the comments section. But here is an example of a company that has too far.
    This company should be boycotted for their stupidity.
