Doesn't sound good. Too bad this is all there is. Kind of like only reading the middle of a book.

IN MEMORIAM: OFFICER RICHARD MARTIN
Officer Richard Martin was intentionally struck and killed by a vehicle as he set up spike strips at the intersection of N Kirkwood Road and St. Mary's Lane during a vehicle pursuit.
Officers from the Houston Police Department were pursing the U-Haul van after it had been carjacked in North Houston. The driver of the vehicle fired several shots at officers during the pursuit before bailing out, carjacking a second vehicle, and fleeing again. Officer Martin was in the process of deploying spike strips when the driver intentionally struck him with the stolen vehicle.
The vehicle continued to flee until stopping on the 45 North Freeway. The subject attempted to commit suicide by shooting himself as officers initiated a felony traffic stop. The man was taken into custody suffering a non-fatal gunshot wound.
Officer Martin was a four year veteran of the Houston Police Department and is survived by two children; a 22 year old daughter and an 11 year old son.
Officer Richard Martin-gone, but never forgotten.

Edged Weapons Survival
There’s no doubt about it, working as a law enforcement officer is one of the most difficult, dangerous, and thankless jobs on the planet. Recent incidents in the US have outlined just how dangerous a job it can be, with officers being targeted both on and off the job by the citizens they are sworn to protect. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like this trend is going to dissipate any time in the near future, and officers will continue to be targeted as people lash out against the system designed to keep them safe.
Risk and risk management have always been a part of the job. How well you mitigate these risks by far and large determines whether or not you and your partner go home at the end of your watch. Situational awareness and target hardening are paramount in ever officer’s personal safety arsenal and are never more important than when confronted with an edged weapon.
Unlike civilians, law enforcement officers don’t have the option to escape and evade an individual armed with a knife, sword, or axe. They are also frequently criticized when they are forced to engage the threat with lethal force. It’s this damned if you do, damned if you don’t paradigm that can cause officers to hesitate, second guess, and end up as a statistic. This article will examine some of the physical and psychological implications of edged weapon assaults and some of the tactical and strategic factors that impact survivability.

THE BADGE
Do you see this badge?
Do you even know what it stands for?
Do you even care to know?
Well, I’m telling you. This badge is about a few ounces in weight but probably one of the heaviest things to ever carry.
For within it is everything that keeps you safe.
It stands for Justice. Honor. Valor and Integrity. It swears to keep you safe at night while you sleep, as the wolves are hungry… at YOUR door.
To find your child, render first aid to your loved one, catch the one who harmed you.
It is to uphold laws and yes, catch criminals, in what each circumstance is called for. It may seem brutal at times, and it is. The wearer of this badge is often beaten, bloody, or killed.
This badge represents you. It is there for you.
We are there to protect you. And yes, sometimes we need your help.
Do not judge what you do not understand. For these few ounces are heavy, and most unbearable at times.
You may not wear this badge.
