Police Detective Benjamin Marconi, RIP
A Texas detective was shot and killed while writing a traffic ticket outside of police headquarters late Sunday morning. Later Sunday, two other officers were wounded in incidents in Florida and Missouri.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus identified the slain officer as 20-year veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi, 50. He said the suspect has not yet been apprehended, and a motive is not known.
McManus said Marconi had pulled over a car for a traffic violation outside Public Safety Headquarters in downtown. While Marconi was inside his squad car writing a ticket, a black vehicle pulled up behind him and the driver got out, walked up to the detective’s window and shot him in the head, McManus said. Then the suspect reached into the window and shot Marconi a second time, he said.
“This type of crime cannot and will not be tolerated. I ask for the community’s thoughtfulness and patience as the investigation continues and SAPD searches for the suspect,” she said.
McManus said the suspect is a black male around 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall in height, wearing a gray sweatshirt and black baggy pants. The suspect also has a beard, KENS reported.
San Antonio police released an image of the vehicle that was seen leaving the scene, as well as a person of interest who they said may have information in the shooting.
Crime Stoppers in San Antonio is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest of the suspect.
UPDATE II: Four police officers shot in US cities.
How did we get to a point in the United States where such a thing could happen. There was a time in this country where randomly shooting a police officer would be considered unheard of, and it was not all that long ago.
One policeman was shot dead and three others shot and wounded in four US cities on Sunday, coinciding with an epidemic of racially-tinged gun violence involving law enforcement.
Police were shot in San Antonio, Texas, Sanibel, Florida, and in the Missouri cities of St. Louis and Gladstone, local police departments said.
There was no known connection between the shootings.
In San Antonio, authorities were hunting for a suspect who fatally shot 20-year service veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi twice in the head after being pulled over in traffic in front of police department headquarters.
A police officer in Sanibel, on the picturesque island of the same name off the Florida coast, was shot and wounded during a “routine” traffic stop, officials said.
The suspect, who has been arrested, drove by and shot the officer after he had stopped another driver, Sanibel Police Chief Bill Tomlinson was quoted as saying.
In St. Louis, a suspect shot a police sergeant through his rolled up window as he sat in a marked police car in slow traffic.
In western Missouri, another police officer was shot in Gladstone but was expected to live, the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police said on Twitter. The condition of the suspect was unknown.

One San Diego police officer was killed and another one wounded when a driver they stopped Thursday night opened fire on them in the latest in a series of cop shootings around the nation.
The suspected shooter was arrested, and police said they were not pursuing any other suspects. Neither the police officers’ nor the alleged gunman’s names were immediately released.
The determination that the killer acted alone followed a long manhunt in the city’s Southcrest neighborhood involving SWAT teams, helicopters and squad cars.
Video footage showed officers out in force with numerous squad cars with emergency lights flashing lining a street, officers on foot, and a helicopter buzz overhead.
Police said the officers were shot while making a stop and immediately called for help. The officer who died was shot multiple times.
LA Times: 2 San Diego police officers shot, one fatally, in traffic stop; suspect held.
Two San Diego police officers were shot, one of them fatally, during a traffic stop late Thursday night in the Southcrest neighborhood, police said.
The names and tenures of the male officers, both part of the department’s gang suppression unit, were not released.
One of the officers suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at a hospital despite lifesaving efforts, police Chief Shelly Zimmerman said early Friday outside Scripps Mercy Hospital. The second officer underwent surgery early Friday and was expected to survive.
Police had one suspect in custody. He had been shot and was being treated at a hospital, Zimmerman said.
The two officers had pulled over a vehicle about 11 p.m. somewhere in the area of Acacia Grove Way and 36th Street. Immediately after, they called for emergency cover, Zimmerman said.
Other officers were in the area and arrived shortly after. They found both officers suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper torso. One was rushed in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died.
“Despite heroic efforts by officers on scene and heroic efforts by doctors to save his life, I’m heartbroken to report they were unable to save him and he is deceased,” Zimmerman said.
She said she went to the home of the officer who died and notified his wife, two children and extended family members who were at the home.
Rudy Giuliani Says We Have To Understand More About the Races; However, “Black Lives Matters” is Racist & Anti-American
RUDY GIULIANI SPEAKS THE TRUTH AND TAKES HEAT FOR IT …
Rudy Giuliani went on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ and did what Rudy does, spoke the truth that many, including the media, can not handle. As Jack Nicholson famously said in the movie, ‘A Few Good Men’ … “you can’t handle the truth.” Rudy stated, “Whites and Blacks both have to look at things differently.” He then went on to say, to the horror of an uninformed and agenda driven media, “Black lives matter” is racist.
Check out the VIDEO below tongue lashing and education that Mayor Rudy gave to the liberal MSM. Rudy stated that “Black Lives Matters” is racist and then backed up his assertion with facts. Because if they cared about black lives, they would care about the 93% of deaths where blacks are killed by black crime.
So what kind of a group claims they are for saving the lives of blacks and only focuses on something that happens 1 to 2 percent of the time and avoids 93-95%? Better yet, what kind of a media does the same and pushes a false narrative against authority and police officers?
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani says the Black Lives Matter movement puts a target on the back of police officers. Guiliani adds, “When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist.”
