Another Sad Day

Today thirty-two year old Trooper Joseph Longobardo died as a result of injuries received in the line of duty. Trooper Longobado was shot in the thigh, the bullet severing an artery.

On Thursday, August 31, Trooper Longobardo and his partner, Trooper Donald Baker were ambushed in Fredonia, a town near Buffalo, NY. Trooper Baker was also severely injured when bullets fired by a high powered rifle pierced his abdomen; he is now in stable condition. Both men were participating in a massive manhunt for a man accused of shooting another NY State Trooper just eleven weeks ago.

The ambush was in all likelihood perpetrated by escaped convict Ralph Phillips, wanted for the June 10th shooting of Trooper Sean Brown in the town of Veteran, about 65 miles south of Syracuse. Although severely wounded, Trooper Brown is recovering. Phillips escaped from prison on April 2 by using a can opener to force open kitchen ceiling tiles. Phillips was in jail for violaton of parole and was due to be released in only four days when he escaped.

Trooper Longobardo is the third Trooper to lose his life this year. Please pray for the familes of these brave men.

9/4/06 UDATE:
The last I heard, Trooper Baker was in a medically induced coma. The bullet went through his body armor and out his side. Trooper Longobardo was stationed out of Saratoga County north of Albany. He was a member of the NYSP MRT and was assigned to the Task Force hunting Phillips.

Phillips is a complete waste of oxygen. God willing, this will be remedied shortly and a more abundant supply of precious O2 will be available. He is a predicate felon with a very lengthy criminal record, has served time for eight felony convictions and has sworn to kill police. This is probably the only time this worthless POS has ever kept his word.

Phillips' reputation has assumed heroic proportions on NY's Southern Tier among dirt bags, trash and other oxygen depleting reptiles. Since he has native american ancestory, he is receiving assistance from other native americans as well as his family, several of whom have been arrested already. The Troopers were shot while staking out the home of Phillips' ex-girlfriend.

This is a map of where Phillips has been tracked by the NYSP, leaving a crime spree of burglaries, stolen guns (41) and stolen cars in his wake.
