Yesterday, Omaha Police Officer Kerrie Orozco, 29, was shot down by a black thug hours before her period of maternity leave was supposed to begin.
Orozco and her fellow officers were trying follow up on felony arrest warrant to a fugitive thug named Marcus D. Wheeler. Wheeler began to fire at the officers, and Orozco was unfortunately hit. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, but it was already too late. The thug was also shot, but he managed survived his injuries.
Orozco has a husband and is the mother of three and recently gave birth to a premature baby girl a few months ago. She had made the decision put off her maternity leave until the baby was able to leave the hospital and come home. Wednesday was to be her last day at work.
This is another prime example of a sad, but true story that doesn’t get any media attention because it’s a black thug killing a white cop. No controversy there, therefore no story.
