PA - Officer Brian Gregg, 46, shot to death, Langhorne, 29 Sept 2005
THE FAMILY of Robert Anthony Flor, Sr., who allegedly killed one cop and wounded another and an emergency-room technician last week, wanted desperately to get him mental-health care.
Flor’s history of violence, mercurial temper, and alcohol and drug addiction had taken its toll on relatives and his girlfriends, whom he regularly threatened and smacked around.
He twice tried to attack cops when he was arrested — once in 1987, despite being handcuffed, and again in 1994 when he tried to grab one officer’s gun and to hit others with an aluminum bat.
Then, last Thursday, cops say, Flor’s irrational rage erupted into a deadly rampage inside St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, where he had been taken for a blood-alcohol test after police stopped him on suspicion of drunken driving and of assaulting his girlfriend.
Flor, wearing a hospital gown, grabbed a .357 revolver from the holster of Newtown Borough Police Officer James J. Warunek, police said. Authorities say he fired until Warunek’s partner, Brian S. Gregg, was dead and emergency-room technician Joseph Epps and Warunek were wounded. And there were no rounds left in the five-shot pistol.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

From October 2013:
A jury in 2006 sentenced Flor to death for fatally shooting Gregg, 46, on Sept. 29, 2005.
The murder took place in the emergency room of St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown, where Flor had been brought following his arrest for drunken driving and domestic assault. Gregg's partner, Newtown officer James Warunek, had taken Flor into a bathroom stall so he could provide a urine sample. After Warunek uncuffed him, Flor grabbed the officer's gun and began shooting.
Gregg, who was just a week away from his one-year anniversary as a full-time police officer, was hit twice in the head.

In conjunction with National Police Week, Bucks County State Reps. Frank Farry (R-Langhorne) and Gene DiGirolamo (R-Bensalem) introduced legislation to authorize paramedics to conduct blood draws on behalf of municipal police departments in alleged driving under the influence (DUI) cases.
Under current law, paramedics are only authorized to exercise their skills under emergency 911 situations or when conducting a routine ambulance transport.
“The Officer Brian Gregg Act will allow paramedics to use their skills to assist our local police with timely blood draws if and when a paramedic is available,” Farry said.
