2 Officers Killed In Santa Cruz California

Just a few miles north of my old hometown. The shooter was also killed after a 30 minute foot chase.

Detective Sergeant Loran 'Butch' Baker
Detective Elizabeth Butler

Car Guy called me to let me know today. He knew Sgt. Baker. A tough day for my brothers and sisters. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and all their loved ones and friends.

End Of Watch 2-26-13.
Rest In Peace.

Always bad news when this happens, but especially when it hits close to home.

I'm trying to decide whether or not to go out for the funeral. I think maybe I'll stay home. Too damn many funerals lately.

I work cheap Kelly! BBQ, a warm spot to sleep and adult beverages. Oh, and maybe some shootiness!

Thanks NFO. I've decided not to go out for the funeral. We've been to too many these last couple of years.
