Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo announced the incident on his Twitter feed, asking all to pray for the officer’s safety. In a tweet sent out shortly before 1 pm by national FOP President Joe Gamaldi, Gamaldi stated that Sergeant Harold Preston, a 41 year veteran of the Houston Police Department who was weeks away from retirement was killed in the incident. Few details are currently available as to the nature of the call or what transpired in the ensuing shooting.

Enough of this shit ! This is what happens when one political party feels its easier to convince people that their criminality is the result of society picking on them instead of their own personal selfishness, greed and dysfunction…. That they have a right to stand up against, assault and murder those that protect the civil society and uphold the laws of the civil society WHEN they violated those laws and ruleS….All for votes to stay in power…. They will appease the lower rungs of society for votes by saying their problems are not their fault, because that’s easier for them to do then helping them solve their problems…. If you think that sacrificing the police was tough for Democrats to do…Understand that in their sacrificing the life’s and safety of our police and defunding of our police departments effectively shrinking them and the blanket of protection they provide US…The Democrats are also sacrificing you for their power……
