Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Officers Benjamin J. Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 24, of the Hattiesburg Police Department were rushed to a hospital but did not survive, Mayor Johnny DuPree told CNN.
“The men and women who go out every day to protect us, the men and women who go out every day to make sure that we are safe, were turned on tonight,” DuPree said.
According to the Reuters news agency, Tate was a recent graduate of the police academy and Deen, who was named officer of the year in 2012, was a police dog handler.
Saturday marked the first shooting death of a Hattiesburg officer since 1984, according to the Clarion-Ledger.
