Bush Motorcade Crash Kills N.M. Officer

Aug 27, 2007 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press

“Any time there is a presidential motorcade, the officers, that's part of their job, they drive at a high rate of speed”

A police officer in President Bush's motorcade crashed his motorcycle and died Monday, less than a year after a crash in Hawaii killed another motorcycle officer accompanying the president.

Rio Rancho Officer Germaine Casey, 40, crashed at the Albuquerque airport at a point where a road enters an underground parking garage, said Trish Hoffman, a spokeswoman for the Albuquerque Police Department. He was pronounced dead at an Albuquerque hospital.

Bush had been headed to the airport after attending a fundraiser for Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M. Read more

Your hatred for George Bush blinds you to common sense. It is a tradegy that this cop died doing his job, and nothing else. Good thing he didn't die while Clinton was president, as he would have had a hard time explaining the hookers and beer bongs in the back of the limo!

Germaine Casey dies in a tragic accident and the only thing some people think to post are embarrassing attempts at humor and political attacks. That's just pathetic.

Pipe down limey, your country is our number one supporter in foreign affairs. You are probrably writing this while wearing bra and panties.

Your attempt at humor is about as clever as the ability of the English to defend their own country in WWII.

I wasn't aware that low unemployment, a strong economy, and a growing GDP equals running this country into the ground.

Agree, God Bless and God Speed P.O. Casey.

Other police officers have died guarding Bush's motorcade and here is a web site devoted to remembering all the fine police officers who have lost their lives or have been injured guarding U.S. presidents and candidates.

COPS: In the Line of Duty, They Lost Their Lives Protecting the President

President Bush had spent the night of November 20, 2006, at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii on his way back from a trip to Indonesia and Vietnam. The following morning he was being escorted by a group of Honolulu motorcycle officers to another part of the base to have breakfast with the troops when tragedy struck.

A light rain had caused some of the roads to be slippery. As the presidential motorcade made its way across the base, three of the motorcycles crashed on a slick spot in the roadway. Members of the President’s medical team, including an ambulance, responded immediately and the three injured officers were taken to the local hospital. Two of the officers were treated and released with minor injuries, but Officer Steve Favela, 30, was not so fortunate. One of the major arteries in Officer Favela’s leg was severed in the crash and he suffered a significant loss of blood. When a plea for blood donations was made, the outpouring of support from Steve’s fellow officers and the citizens he served was 'tremendous,' in the words of his wife, Barbara.

Despite all of the support, though, Officer Favela’s injuries were just too severe and he died on November 26.(cont...

How does something like this happen, not once, but twice? I mean, isn't there protocol in place to protect the lives of these officers??? Seems odd to me. Sorry to the family of fallen officer.
