(ReliableNews.org) – Each day, officers leave home with the knowledge that they might not return that night. For one Georgia officer, his first shift at a new department was also his last.
On Friday night, October 8, Alamo Police Officer Dylan Harrison, 26, pulled over a driver in a Circle K parking lot across the street from the police station. He had to tase the man for not complying with orders, but eventually, he got the suspect under control and arrested him. Around 1 a.m. on Saturday, police allege Damien Anthony Ferguson, 43, shot Harrison in retaliation in an ambush-style attack outside of the police station.
Officers arrested Ferguson at his home on Sunday morning and charged him with Harrison’s murder.
Being a law enforcement officer in the US has always been a dangerous job. However, it seems to have become even more so over the last few years as anti-police movements have taken hold on the Left. Although not all officer deaths result from those beliefs, it’s not hard to see why agencies are fighting so hard to make sure pandering politicians who promote anti-law enforcement propaganda don’t defund their departments.
Harrison leaves behind a wife and a 6-month-old baby. His family has set up a GoFundMe to help pay for funeral and living expenses.
