Some cop hating asshole murdered Officer Natalie Corona of the Davis, CA Police Department last night, for absolutely no reason other than he hated cops.
The war on cops continues.
According to a friend who was there assisting Davis PD through the night, the piece of shit murderer who I will not name, ambushed Officer Natalie Corona while she was working a car crash. He rode up on his bicycle and shot her. I am told he dumped two whole magazines at her. Then he pedaled his piece of shit ass home.
A short while later when the cops showed up to deal with him, he continued his fucking cowardly behavior and offed himself.
Rot in Hell for all eternity you cowardly mother fucker!
I did not share this on social media last night because I could not bring myself to type this. I went to bed to let my feelings temper, but sleep was elusive as my mind would not stop, and my anger and sorrow only grew. This incident happened in Davis, CA, an ultra-liberal town located just west of Sacramento. During my college years, my friends and I spent more than a few nights in Davis at a bar called The Graduate. I know the town fairly well.
Davis, from a law enforcement point of view, is a pretty safe little town. Natalie is only the second officer from the department to be killed in the line of duty, and the last one was killed in 1959.
Officer Natalie Cordova was only 22 years old. She was just a kid. She went through Sac PD’s academy, from where she just graduated last year.
She had only been a cop since August 2nd when her father pinned her badge on her. She was barely out of FTO training, by only 2 weeks. She was serving her community. And for that, she was senselessly murdered.
The picture of her that is sticking with me is the one of her in the blue dress holding the thin blue line flag. She took that photo two years before she became a cop. This is what she said when she shared that image on social media:
I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country. #LawEnforcement#Blueline#Thankyou#Lausphotography
She was a beautiful young woman with her entire life ahead of her, all snuffed out because of what she was wearing, her uniform. Her loss is senseless and tragic.
Her father, Merced Corona, served 26 years as a deputy with the Colusa County Sheriff’s Department. Only five months ago, he proudly pinned her badge on her when she was sworn in. Now, sadly, for no reason, in a week or so, he will be burying her.
No parent should ever have to bury their kid, especially one murdered for no other reason than the profession she chose.
Natalie was only a few years older than my oldest kid. Her father was a deputy and served only a few years longer than I did. More than one of my sons has at one point or another expressed interest in being a cop. I cannot help but put myself in Merced Corona’s shoes. I cannot imagine what he is going through right now.
My sincere condolences to all who knew Natalie. My thoughts and prayers go out to Natalie’s family and friends. And when I say family, I mean not only those related by blood, but also the members of her blue family. I did not know Natalie, but she was my sister.
