Seems like the consensus is we are sorry he died but it was 5 years ago and people die all the time at work. How about the poor garbageman killed a few months back on Rt 28 while doing his garbage route? Barely a blurb on the news. Obviously his job was just as dangerous as any cop job around here. Howabout the girl that died delivering newspapers? The towtruck driver that was killed on the thruway? Nobody is naming highways after these folks. Howabout we let Corr rest in peace and move on.

Why dont you complain to the news stations and the papers..and to his parents. Instead you are ranting on here bringing his name up...again. Let his name rest in peace. "He" has no control about what his family and the "public" do and say. Joe would have never wanted any of this. He has moved on. Either do something productive to change it.. or keep your opinions to yourself.

America’s 10 Most Dangerous Jobs
1. Fisherman: Fatality rate: 200 per 100,000 – Median wages:$23,600. I was surprised to see fishermen top the list of the most dangerous professions in the US, but then I remembered watching a few episodes of Deadliest Catch. Fishermen are routinely exposed to the elements and heavy equipment, all of which can be dangerous. The recent oil spill in the gulf exposed thousands of fishermen to oil and other chemical pollutants, so we may see the effects from that in the near future. Is it worth it? Some Alaskan fishermen have earned up to $100,000 for only a couple days work. But as you can see, most fishermen only scrape by, earning median wages of $23,600.

2. Logger: Fatality rate: 61.8 per 100,000 – Median wages:$34,440. Logging is the number two most dangerous job on the list, but a quick look at the numbers shows over 3 times as many fishermen die from work related injuries than the number two item on the list. Loggers work with heavy equipment and often in remote locations; the location and lack of full medical facilities often increasing the risk of injury related deaths.

3. Airline Pilots: Fatality rate: 57.1 per 100,000 – Median wages:$106,240. This statistic might be a little misleading as there aren’t many commercial airline crashes in the US in any given year. Most pilot deaths come from small one and two engine aircraft. The salary might be slightly misleading as well – it seems to be skewed toward higher paid commercial airline pilots, who generally have a safer job than other pilots. Still, piloting is a dangerous profession, even with new technology and arguably the safest aircraft and procedures in the history of man.

4. Farmers and ranchers: Fatality rate: 35.8 per 100,000 – Median wages:$32,350. Farmers are exposed to the elements, heavy machinery, large animals, and many other dangerous activities. Many farmers also work under pressure. For example, growing crops takes all season, but harvesting usually needs to be completed as quickly as possible because the machinery often needs to be used at other locations.

5. Roofers: Fatality rate: 34.7 per 100,000 – Median wages:$33,970. Roofing is a difficult and dangerous profession with injuries related to falls, tools and equipment, hot tar, exposure to the elements and more.

6. Ironworkers: Fatality rate: 30.3 per 100,000 – Median wages:$44,500. Have you ever seen a skyscraper being built? It’s amazing to watch those guys walking across a couple inch piece of steel several hundred feet above the street. It’s also incredibly dangerous. Safety measures and regulations have come a long way in the last few decades, but this is still one of the most dangerous professions.

7. Sanitation Worker: Fatality rate: 25.2 per 100,000 – Median wages:$32,070. Large equipment, and exposure to chemicals and the elements make this a more dangerous profession than many would assume.

8. Industrial machinist: Fatality rate: 18.5 per 100,000 – Median wages:$39,600. Accidents with heavy machinery are the most common cause of death for this career field.

9. Truckers and drivers/sales delivery workers: Fatality rate: 18.3 per 100,000 – Median wages:$37,730. Truck drivers don’t lead the list the list in terms of deaths per 100,000 workers, but they actually lead the list when it comes to total numbers of deaths because there are more truckers and deliverymen than the other professions. Accidents and weather are the main causes of death on the job.

10. Construction laborer: Fatality rate: 18.3 per 100,000 – Median wages:$29,150. Heavy machinery and accidents with construction equipment lead the way.

Well I doubt that many dead cops have scholership funds in their names. Maybe a bar trailer or a publicity parade or a highway but education isn't what I'd say is very high on most of today's cops agendas what are you talking about?

Well it seems like people want to move on but the annual media blitz makes that pretty tough. If these people wouldn't have wanted this then why do the people who were closest to them allow it to go on? I never saw anything like this except in this area where public safety jobs are the be-all and end-all of someone's existence. They shove this crap down your throat you have no choice but to hear it and see it. I didn't kill any cops I have lived my life playing along with all the hypocracy and self-promoting lies and police propaganda. I pay a fortune in property tax ands O God school tax for all these union dependant jobs and people who I doubt could do anything else BUT work for police departments. I never thought I'd say something so blunt but they are gone get over it we all lose people for some reason or another. It's a good thing none of the media people around here are good at TV or movies or we'd have a miniseries replayed every year on tv if these attention hungry ghouls had their way!
