Pittsburgh Stanton Heights Shooting Officer Tribute Post

crossesfortributeblurUpdated (04/07/09) – see below

Normally SWB would rant on heavily about the shooter that killed three Pittsburgh Police Officers (Eric Kelly, Paul Sciullo, and Stephen Mayhle), but in honor to the service these officers have given (along with their lives) we will simply provide the following link for those not familiar with the happening and do/request the following listed below that link:

———–

Click Here for a link to the story from WTAE Channel 4 News Pittsburgh.

  • SWB will ask that you place comments and wishes to the families on this post (we moderate, so it may take a few hours until we can approve the comments, so please have patience). We are not sure any of the families will read it, but we will print a copy and forward it to the Pittsburgh Police Department hoping that the comments will get to the families.
  • Please also place any prayer requests for the officers and their families here and the main author will forward them to the prayer groups at the church he goes to.
  • SWB will observe the remainder of the day post-free in honor of the officers and their families (we feel that posting a rant about the shooter at this time is not what the families of the officers need – they needs our support and prayers)
  • SWB asks that you personally pray for the families of the officers.
  • We kindly request that the other local bloggers post a similar tribute page regardless of religious beliefs.

Update (04/06/09):

  • The three officers were awarded the Purple Heart and Medal Of Valor from city. Please Click Here for the article from The Tribune-Review. It also contains public and pivate viewing times.
  • Click Here for an additional posting from SWB.
  • Update as of 5:45pm: WPXI announced a discovery that Poplawski had been posting on white supremacy sites one of the quotes being “God is in your garden, God is in your gun”. Announcement was on TV news – no website link at this time.

Update (04/07/09):

  • City Council honors slain officers. Click Here for the article from The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
