Just talked to Jdubz and he is understandably upset.

Metro police officer dies from injuries after early-morning crash - Breaking News - ReviewJournal.comhttp:/www.lvrj.com/news/breaking_news/44521912.html

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I was contacted by Sho nuff that he was related to a fellow rider Big Baby.

I saw that this morning and it's horrifying. I immediately thought of JDub as I'm sure every member of Metro are felt as brothers and sisters. I watched the news conference and it made me sick to my stomach the reason and the how it occured. My prayers are with his family, friends and with his Metro family.

Definately a sad ending. Wonder what the protocal is for Metro to use their lights and siren. Several witnesses said both cars did not have them on. But from those pictures, they had to be moving at a pretty fast clip.

How about we deal with the fact that one of OUR family just lost a fellow officer and a brother. There will be plenty of time to question protocal etc... Let's give that a rest hear and allow people to deal with there grief and let the media and public speculate. I would hope that this site and family could be a haven for OUR Family in a time like this.

Sorry man, didn't realize he was a forum member.

Maybe one of you guys can create a RIP Forum, to honor everyone who has been lost.

he isnt a member, but a member of his family is on here... at any rate, usually tension runs high when something effecting the community happens. best to give it a couple days to cool down...
