Police Chief Killed, Multiple Officers Shot in NH

GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) — Attorney General Michael Delaney says 48-year-old Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney was the officer killed during a drug bust-turned-shootout in New Hampshire that left four other officers wounded.
Delaney confirmed early Friday that Maloney was the officer killed as authorities were conducting a drug investigation in the small town of Greenland.
The incident started around 6 p.m. Thursday and the suspect remains barricaded in a home with a woman.
Maloney was due to retire in less than two weeks. He was married and has children. In addition to Maloney, the department had just six officers.
The four injured officers were from other departments. Two are in intensive care and two have been treated and released.

    Really. You think legalizing drugs would have prevented this tragedy? Tell that to the family of the fallen officer . To thinks husband and his fellow officers put their lives on the line for such ignorance is appalling.

    To everyone on this post, Virginia P Elder her real name is “Virginia P Poole” is a child abuser. She gave her own children away in the 1970′s Bayonne New Jersey because of drugs and alcohol. Her children were being abused in her home, and she did nothing about it. That’s the only reason why she would know about drugs and alcohol. She still drinks everyday. Virginia has a very bad habit as a liar and covering up her past. She is a child abuser and she neglected her children. She is a Monster.

    You want me to stop telling everyone what you did Virginia??? You owe my sisters and I an apology for what for what you did to us. You have no right to make us rot in those foster homes. I was abused in your home and then I was abused in those foster homes. You need to woman the hell up and admit what you did wrong to me and everyone else.

    Anyone can look at Bayonne NJ Public Records and Public Library to see what I am talking about. If it isn’t true Mom, you need to prove to everyone here, you didn’t abuse and neglect your own children.
