They just showed the clip again from when they were transporting him and it looked like he folded up the pendant and slip something between his fingers. Skinny guy so he was able to reach his low hanging necklace with his hands still handcuffed behind his back. The deceased officer is seen walking him to the car. Disgusting individual.
Well thanks for your service...I have always had a special place for law enforcement, military, and firemen. You guys go to work everyday and put yourselves in harm's way and it's just your job. I know it's overlooked all the time but times like this bring it full circle. Thank you and to all others who serve daily!!
I was actually down at bc rain working with some kids. This all happened with 100 yards of my kids. Heard someone empty a clip. Then heard sirens from everywhere and finally the chopper. After a couple mins we were told to leave by the cops. Crazy day.
Actually the pendant was hiding a box cutter type razor blade, it can be seen when rewatching the news clip of him being escorted to the car, I spoke with my brother who is a Mobile Co Sheriffs deputy and he was telling me that they pat them down and then effects such as necklaces are taken away when they are booked, I work as a Firemedic for MFRD, I was off duty today but I was shocked when i heard of this as we work so closely with MPD and I have several very close friends on MPD, I did not know the officer involved personally but the thoughts and prayers of my family go out to his and to all others who are involved in this line of work...
awful story. Feel terrible for the Green family

It's a thin line both ways though man..
"Educate the mind to think, the heart to feel, and the body to act."
I understand your anger.....I have seen the video along with many others while participating in training. I want to say though, I find myself being more angry at myself and fellow officers while I watch because of the complacency. Complacency will get you killed in this line of work faster than anything else. It's deadly and unfortunately it happens often. Events such as this serve as a reminder to myself and others that at any given time your life can be taken by someone without regard for even their own life. Rather than channel my anger toward the guilty, I use it as an advantage so that I can ensure I go home to my wife and son every night. My prayers go out to the fallen officers family. In the line of duty this year alone there have been nearly 130 incidents with officers injured and I believe the number is now 7 deaths. We just entered February...think about that.
I added a link that I hope some will take time to look at. They update it every day, unfortunately the numbers grow.
The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) honors law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in the United States.
Wallace was inside the Sally port when he attacked Green and stole his patrol car. He apparently rammed the door of the Sally port on his way out and led a chase to the DIP area and hid under a house. *just filling in the story for those that are curious
My thoughts and prayers with the families/friends of those officers... What a tragic situation... Just awful!!!
Steve is my cousin. He was a die hard Abbie. He wasn't just a cop he coached Lil league for about 10 yrs at peters park winning 4 championships. He always wanted to be a cop. He died doing what he loved. Pulse keep us in your prayers. We have a extremely large extended family
My Grandfather was in law enforcement for over 35 years, and was the DA Investigator when he died.
Just in the last ten years our society has changed unbelievably when it comes to disrespecting authority and disregard for human life.
That's why I say in this day and time, if someone is fool enough to pull a weapon, shoot em. To me, if it's a regular person these idiots are pulling a gun on, well, they may not use it..but if if they have the stones to pull one on a cop, you damn well better bet they plan on it.
I'm really sorry your cousing died serving his community. The little league thing hits me hard, because he obviously cared a lot about kids. We need more of these people.
I hope that SOB suffered before he died, but I have a feeling he got off easy...
You and your family are in my prayers. He sounds like a good man and I know he will be deeply missed. God bless your family.
I am glad they killed the sob Spoke to an officer that was there
and said mother had to come from huntsville can not imagine
what she is going thru I wish them all the prayers in the world
I know the family needs all the support they can get
Prayers go out to his family. My brother is the sheriff's deputy that was shot in Huntsville a couple months ago. He was fortunate in that the sob pumped15 rounds from a AK 47 into his cruiser. No direct hits except from sharpnel (sp)?, to face and neck. God was definitely with him.
If you are able to watch the news video where the murderer is talking it will make your blood boil with anger. Truly sad.
