Fourth Oakland police officer has died

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – An Oakland police officer shot during a traffic stop died Sunday, bringing to four the number of officers killed on the deadliest day in the department’s history, police said.

Officer John Hege, 41, died at Highland Hospital after being gravely wounded in the first of two shootings on Saturday, Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said.

A 26-year-old parolee wanted on a parole violation opened fire on Hege and 40-year-old Sgt. Mark Dunakin after they pulled him over Saturday afternoon, police said. Dunakin died that day. Hege was hospitalized with a major brain injury and survived through the night, his family said.

Suspect Lovelle Mixon was slain later Saturday afternoon in a gunfight with police that left two more officers dead. Thomason identified those officers as Sgt. Ervin Romans, 43, and Sgt. Daniel Sakai, 35.

Oakland police said never in the department’s history had so many officers been killed in the line of duty in a single day.

Police: Fourth Oakland police officer has died

The very 1st thing I have to say here is this: My most sincere and heart felt condolences to the families of these Oakland police officers. We ARE a police family and we truly share in your pain.

I am NOT about to denigrate the procedures and tactics these officers used, and I will NOT armchair quarterback their actions in the field, there is already far too much of that happening. I am sure the departmental investigations will find the truth and make those findings public, Internal Affairs and Shooting Boards usually do.

What I will question is this, WHY in the HELL was this guy out on parole? He had a warrant out for his arrest for violating that parole. IF the guy was that much of a violent criminal, WHY was he out on parole to begin with? Was that anything to do with the strain of intense liberalism, forced political correctness, and bleeding heart compassion that runs through the government, and a great many residents of the state of California?

Just as an after thought, if ANY of you doubt that this nation is over run with the most disgusting libber-pukes that the earth has ever seen, read the comments in the 2 stories linked here, Fourth officer in Oakland shooting dies and Soldier killed by Texas police in SUV dragging, they literally left me feeling sick, I mean sick in the pit of my stomach.

Both of the above linked stories are from that beacon of rabid liberalism, USA Today, and the comments are on a shooting that took place here in Texas Friday night, at least half of the comments were made calling the police murderers for doing their job. The Oakland story has a string of comments that are just as disgusting, with many of the comments appearing to be gleeful at the deaths of the officers, many were blaming the gun owners of this nation, the ones that really got me were the ignorant asses that believe the NRA sponsored this and the 2nd Amendment promoted it!

Ladies and gentlemen, we DO have a battle on our hands, WE being the legal, sane, safe and responsible gun owners of this nation. Liberal moonbats are the enemy, they have NO conception of REAL life, they have NO understanding of what a police officer or soldier go through on a daily basis and they have no compassion for the families of those troops and police officers.

This guy that did the shooting, Lovelle Mixon, was a known criminal, he quite likely should NOT have been on the streets of this nation to begin with, and you can bet your bottom dollar that he did NOT legally obtain the weapons that he used to murder these officers! The enemies of this nation are the criminals that DO these heinous crimes and socialists and libbers that insist that WE, the LEGAL gun owners, and the NRA, brought this tragic incident to being, those are our enemies, those that rant and rave regarding the disposal of ALL firearms in this nation.

Ask Germany how that gun control thing is working out for them, Teen kills 15 in Germany before taking own life, or ask the Australians how the gun ban is working for them too, Warring biker gangs brawl through Australian airport as travelers watch; 1 dead. You really want to know how well strict gun control works? Ask these guys, Gun violence jumps in Japan, I’m sure they’ll ALL tell you, it’s those outlaws that attend gun shows in Texas that are the REAL reason all of the gun incidents are happening.

I did NOT intend to get sidetracked and turn this into a 2A rant, it was intended to be a memorial to the deceased officers, but the more I put into it, the angrier I got at the sheer stupidity of the libber-pukes on the left and their disrespect for anything that the police do, even when that action involves making the ultimate sacrifice.

EDIT TO ADD: Police: 4th Oakland officer still on life support

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason announced the death of 41-year-old Officer John Hege earlier Sunday but later said that Hege was being kept alive while a final decision was made about donating his organs.

    My most sincere prayers go out to the families of those officers.

    My curses to those moronic commenters.

    Louvelle Mixon

    LaTasha Mixon, 28, of Sacramento said Sunday her cousin was “not a monster.” She said her family’s prayers were with the slain officers’ relatives.

    “We’re devastated. Everybody took a major loss. We’re crushed,” she said.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29817606

    LaTasha is a FOOL…

    Just what exactly would you call a MURDERING son of a bitch that killed 4 police officers doing their duty??

    He was a MONSTER and an ANIMAL, I don’t care how many of you bleeding heart family asses come out of the woodwork signing that same tired bullshit of “But he was such a good boy, he loved his Mammy” and all that bullshit…

    Crushed?? I fucking HOPE SO! My regret is, they can’t take that sorry son of a bitch out and kill him 3 more times…

    In remembrance of California, once my home state, now descended into anarchy and violence.

    Laws do not stop the lawbreakers, but bullets seem to do quite well.

    “everybody took a major loss”??????? Yikes!!! What an asshole to EVEN begin to combine this worthless piece of dog shit in with the officers who lost their lives. As far as I am concerned we had a MAJOR LOSS when the officers were killed, and a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT when this low life bastard got his just due. Like Fred say’s, too bad they couldn’t kill his
    ass 3 more times. Maybe we should go hunting, you suppose????

    Just look at his eyes. They are “dead” eyes. No human behind those eyes, just an animal. Compare to Putin: same “dead” eyes, just different color iris.

    The officers were doing their jobs. God bless them. Some one has to do that job.

    Why was this animal on parole? Because he was in California. That pretty much sums it up.

    The 2A wouldn’t have helped in this situation. The animal was armed and desperate and the LEO were handcuffed by regulations and PC.

    California has degenerated into a state of chaos, although it doesn’t appear too many people have noticed. I have. Have you?

    Damn Fred this just makes me sick. Been watching this on the boob tube. Your assessment of libtards is exactly so.
    Out here in the land of fruits, nuts, commie bastards and Arnie, courts are turning these animals loose.
    There was a forced release of many felons several weeks ago due to over crowding in jails. Instead of building more and bigger prisons the libtard pansy asses use the money to support libtard fantasy projects that fail.

    The police are the “thin blue line” that stand between our freedoms and chaos. Too many of these bastards out here hate cops.
    I’m headed for Texas just as soon as I can. People are leaving this state in droves thanks to liberal politicians and the libturds that support them.

    My prayers for the families of the fallen police officers. This just breaks my heart.

    God speed Officers Sakai, Romans, Dunakin, and Hege. R.I.P.

    Crap like this won’t stop until Parole Boards are held accountable for the criminals they release back into the public. With no accountability, their bleeding hearts are causing the deaths of innocent people throughout America.

    Gads… I was sick before this fourth Officer died. In all honesty I did not post about it at CLO because I was so twisted inside. Why? Check this link Adams County Colorado Deputy killed in drug raid – Google Search

    Have any of you held a dieing man in your arms like I have. Then busted your ass to play God and stop the inevitable..?
    It makes me sick, period.

    But Bob? I am very good friends with three, yes three convicted murderers that turned their lives around. Granted, they were all “crimes of passion” killers. They have, according to the FBI the best rehabilitation rates of ANY group of offenders.
    So, for all of you lusting for blood? Where do we draw the line?
    First, IMO, we take each case as it’s own thing, and sentence accordingly. Then, we give them a real chance at becoming a productive member of society. Blow it, even a damned traffic ticket the first year? Back you go…
    I fully expect to get hammered for what I just said. I expect it, just like I expected to get hammered when years ago when I said that the drug war was at the bottom of..? You guessed already. Another dead Cop on a damned grass arrest. Want the drug killings to end? Simple. Stop the war on drugs. Bankrupt the murdering bastards. Then hunt them down and kill them. One, at a time… Political Correctness? Not on my watch!

    One thing that I can most defiantly attest too after more than twenty years in Emergency Medical Services is that we, as a people have one hell of a difficult time distinguishing between criminals, and common folk.

    Got a problem with that statement? Fine. Tell us all about the War of Northern Aggression… Tell us about all the PC bullsh*t that we are taught as children about it. We have, as it is said in Public Safety, a History. Fred even pointed out in an earlier posting that there is a new movement set to destroy Americans. Obama’s Brown shirt’s; I think they will be hunting not only dissidents like myself and others. But people like… The LEO’s on this blog.

    As I have been saying at CLO, Here, at U.S.G.O.A., and other assorted places. Arm up America! Do so off paper because a weapon that can be traced can be taken from you.

    2A couldn’t have helped..? Click on the link to Front Sight Training for Gods sakes!

    Another negro wanted felon on the run, gets himself a gun for protection from the law, and also to make a criminal living, and then kills 4 white police officers trying to uphold our laws.
    I would not expect anything different to happen.
    This was a negro on white shooting. Period.

    Felony car stops, are always extremely dangerous, and will also be in the future. Even more so if the suspect is negro.

    Our prison populations are mostly blacks and mexicans, and way, way over their respective race percentage.

    The reason is the way they were conceived, then raised.
    Monkey see, monkey do.
    Follow yo baby mamma’s actions, and yo pappy’s standards.
    What would you expect, something different.

    Oakland, CA is just another a negro cesspool.
    Wouldn’t surprise me if the race war gets going on this.

    Why change anything if the Obama supporters are giving all them free everything,without ever having to work for it.
    Just pop out more babies to grow up criminals.

    This all makes me sick, too! We have the same problem up here where these murdering POS are wandering the streets when they SHOULD be behind bars..

    The insanity continues.

    My prayers with the officers and their families.

  11. comment number 11 by: Gawfer

    What can be said Fred, to make sense of this nonsense? I’ll tell you this; Oakland will no longer be a haven for nappy headed criminals wandering the streets. The look in the eyes of the Police Officers at Highland Hospital said volumes.

    It is a damn shame that 4 cops had to die in the line of duty to get Mayor Dellums and the Oakland city counsel to respond in an athoritative manner to the perpetual condition of that city. The bad part is Dellums is a politician first, and will eventually back down to the criminals. I’m guessing ‘Dirty Harry’ will make a long term visit though.

    My condolenses to the Families of the four Officers. As for the peice of “Shit” that shot them, hopefully he suffered from his gunshots before he died. These Officers did the job they chose and this dirtbag ended their lives while doing the job. I feel sorry for the families and I hope they know that we all mourn with them. I guess this dirtbag thought he didn’t deserve to go back to jail since he was an apparent outstanding citizen. As for these losers that mocked the Police, hope you don’t need anything in the future because these same Officers you mocked after their brothers were killed are the ones you will need to help your sorry asses when you get in trouble. God Bless these four Officers and their Families. God bless us all.

  13. comment number 13 by: Deron

    Oh i guess the “Tree Huggers” are gonna blame the Law Abiding Citizens for this and scream that we need stricter gun laws. If shit heads like this were in jail instead of on parole, we wouldn’t be writing these comments now would we. The Law protects criminals.

    What happened to ‘real time’?

  15. comment number 15 by: Bloviating Zeppelin

    The Fornicalia Bay Area — to include San Francisco — is already an armpit. East Palo Alto has the highest percentile of gangbangers in the state and the highest per-capita homicide rate. Black gangbangers congregate to Oakland in the north like they congregate to Compton in the south. It is an armpit that results in Oakland PD having to test for new officers constantly — the turnover is large. The crowd, by the way, surrounding the man who gave the one motor officer CPR screamed at him: “let him die.”

    Everyone in the Bay Area knows: stay away from Oakland. Ah yes, the city where Jerry Brown was mayor.

    My thoughts are with the department and family and friends of the four slain officers. God bless them.

    And may that dead maggot burn and twist in fucking hell.

    Nothing can make up for a tragedy like this.
    But Bob has the right idea.
    If you sit on a parole board and you release some scumbag who later on commits a crime, no matter the severity, you go to jail!
    You would see a lot fewer murderous assholes wandering the streets.


  17. [...] The shooter was arrested following a long standoff. Somehow that gives me NO peace. After the Oakland officers were murdered the Oakland PD took the murdering bastard OUT. Fourth Oakland police officer has died [...]
