PA - Police Officer Shot
Officer Kevin Livewell a policeman in Philadelphia was shot at around 8:30PM this evening.
This is in a sense a miracle. Officer Livewell is in stable condition. He was shot in the leg. Officer Livewell and his partner Officer Brian Issel were on routine patrol when they spotted a van that was wanted for a prior incident. As the cops got out of their car the occupants of the van started firing with assault rifles.
Firing off assault rifles on police officers. News is still coming in and some suspects have been rounded up. No doubt our media will fly around in their helicopters hoping to catch the cops arresting someone in a rigorous manner.
Please pray for Officer Livewell. He's the father of two. Thank goodness he is going to be O.K.

You know I'm not Catholic, Filly, but I know my Rosary (got one right here) and I'll hold Officer Livewell (what a lovely name) in prayer. I know how hard that must be for you.

Oh Filly, thank you for caring so much about your city's police officers! Thank God this husband and father will recover! I hope he won't have any chronic pain or disability.
We just had two police officer deaths in two weeks in our city. One was an on duty motorcycle accident, the other a heart attack in a 48 year old man , non-smoker, healthy lifestyle, healthy weight with no cardiac history at all. The motorcycle cop left a wife, 13 yr old son, and grown daughter with twin 2yr old babies. My H is the cheif and these deaths hit him hard.
LE is a dangerous career in which you can be killed at any moment, even if you've done the same thing hundreds of times before with no problem. MY H absolutely loves his job, to the point of addiction...I can't imagine he will ever retire!
People like you, who care about people like us, make it well worth the stress! May God Bless you for caring!

I'm so sorry to hear about the two Officers in your city and in the same two weeks. We've had an awful few years here in Philly.
In fact I came to post about the bloomin arsenal found in the van they stopped. Also that Officer Livewell is undergoing surgery on his knee. T you know hard it is to keep them home from work. Officer Livewell will be climbing the walls until his knee heals.
One of the suspects was tackled by Officer Livewell's partner. Absolutely no information is being put out about this guy or them save for the van they were in had been towed months ago according to the company that owns it.
While running the two gunmen dropped.......................
(1) SKS Carbine
Found in the van..............................
(2) Bushmaster AR-15's assault type rifles
(1) Tec 9 Semi pistol
(1) Taurus PT24
Hello!Now what the heck were they up to besides shooting at cops?
