Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and
Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were shot and killed by an emotionally disturbed
person who was wanted for assaulting a police officer in Florida.
According to the “Officer Down Memorial Page.” The deputies had been
dispatched to the restaurant after the man's ex-wife had called to report
the subject was there. Deputy Dailey, who knew the subject, sat down at the
man's table and asked how he was doing. Without warning the subject
produced a handgun and shot the deputy in the head, killing him.
The man fled into the parking lot where he was confronted by Deputy
Logsdon. The subject shot and killed Deputy Logsdon before he was killed by
two other deputies.
Deputy Dailey was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the
Harford County Sheriff's Office for 30 years. He is survived by his two
children and mother.” Hat tip to my brother, Jason Tyler, for getting this
information out to us.
Please join me in prayers for members of our LE families all over the US.
Today, I ask for prayers for the Harford Co Sheriff's Department. Two
members of their department were shot down in cold blood yesterday, Wed.
Feb. 10, 2016. Both leave behind families, colleagues, and friends that are
heartbroken and shocked. Please keep them and their families in your
prayers. We pray for our greater community that is shocked and fed up with
the senseless violence committed against the very folks who protect us and
keep us safe. We are so heartbroken. Amen
The violence committed against our officers must come to an end. Our men
and women in blue must know that the vast majority stand with them and
appreciate their service to our community. And we stand against the
community leaders that trade in the empty rhetoric that attempts to divide
us or does not understand that without public safety you have no community.
