🚨 America's law enforcement is under attack—physically, professionally, and rhetorically.

2021 was one of the most dangerous years in recent history due to the increase of violence directed towards law enforcement, the crime crisis fueled by rogue prosecutors, and the pandemic.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol Member Dies During Traffic Stop

RUTHERFORD COUNTY- A preliminary investigation has revealed that on Monday, January 3, at approximately 8:58 p.m., a member of the State Highway Patrol was struck by a responding Patrol member during a traffic stop at High Shoals Church Rd. and Goodes Grove Church Rd. Trooper James N. Horton was responding to assist with a traffic stop being conducted by Trooper John S. Horton when Trooper James Horton lost control of his vehicle upon approaching the traffic stop. Trooper James Horton collided with the stationary patrol vehicle and subsequently struck Trooper John Horton and the detained driver who were standing along the roadside.

Trooper John Horton, a fifteen-year veteran assigned to Rutherford County, was transported to a Spartanburg hospital where he died of his injuries. The detained driver, who has yet to be identified, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Trooper James Horton was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries and has since been released. The two involved troopers are brothers.

"Our hearts are broken with the loss of our friend and our brother, Trooper John Horton” said Colonel Freddy L. Johnson Jr., commander of the State Highway Patrol. “For all involved in this tragic event the coming days will undoubtedly be difficult, but we are committed to stand alongside with them with our thoughts, prayers and unwavering support.”

Further information regarding the ongoing investigation should be directed to the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation. Additionally, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol Collision Reconstruction Unit is assisting with the investigation.

As snow continues to fall, we ask that if you do not have to be out driving, please stay home while crews work to clear the roads. If you must leave home:

• Make sure your vehicle is ready – check your lights, oil, antifreeze, brakes, tires and windshield wipers
• Clear ice and snow from your car
• Don’t drive before your car is defrosted
• Ensure your headlights are on during inclement weather
• Keep an eye out for black ice and be aware of potentially icy areas such as bridges
• Create a safe stopping distance between your car and other vehicles

12/31/2021

Unfortunately, another one of our Brothers was taken from us by su***de. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Former family and his law enforcement family of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

If you are a first responder in crisis, immediate resources are available at COPLINE by calling 1.800.COPLINE. COPLINE offers a CONFIDENTIAL 24-hour hotline answered by retired law enforcement officers.

You can also reach out to any of the Executive Board, any time. Take care of yourself and each other, the world is better with you in it.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is sad to announce the su***de of one of our own.

On December 29, 2021, just after 7 p.m., Hillsborough County's 911 center received a call from a family member of Deputy Christopher Former, 49. The caller said that Former made suicidal threats to a family member over the phone.

Deputies responded to Former's home in the Mira Lago neighborhood in Ruskin and made contact with Former who briefly interacted with deputies and then barricaded himself inside his home.

Deputies and Negotiators worked to bring Former out of his home peacefully. SWAT entered the home just after 11 p.m., and Former was discovered deceased inside, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Former had worked with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for 23 years, most recently serving as a Community Resource Deputy in the Ruskin area.

"My deepest condolences go out to Deputy Former's family and those that knew and loved him," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "While this is a very difficult time for our Sheriff's Office family, it is times like this where we rely on each other and the community for support. Together we will grieve and try to make sense of what happened."

Sheriff Chronister would like to remind all employees at HCSO that resources are available, including Peer Support, a professional mental health clinician, and other resources through HCSO's insurance provider.

Anyone experiencing a mental health crisis is urged to reach out for help. You can contact the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay at 211 or call 911.

We applaud the cooperative efforts between agencies to help stop a suspect that willfully struck a VSP cruiser, then fled, endangering others on the highways in attempts to elude.

We are thankful that the Trooper only received minor bruises on what could have been worse.

Here is your GOP republican support. A Republican Senator tried to get rid of police unions in Virginia today in a proposed amendment to a comprehensive police reform bill that was up for debate. Sen. Bill Stanley (R-Franklin County) proposed an amendment to exclude law enforcement from unionizing.
