    I have been out of the area hauling livestock and did not hear about the tragedy until late this afternoon, but was told that it was 4 Seattle Officers. I know from experience that anything done in and around the Puget Sound area always seems to be taken as Seattle.

    Later a former partner of mine called and told me it was Lakewood P.D. Officers. I train and teach with 4 of them, so naturally the flags went up and I was on the phone.

    Talked with some of my fellow instructors from there and found that I know 2 of deceased. Also got the story of what transpired. All I can say at this point is FOX news seems to have the best account of what actually happened.

    I trained and taught with Sgt. Renninger, and knew Officer Richards through other means.

    I am starting a donation fund for all the families involved. I will accept donations from now until December 20th.

    Once all are collected, I will forward them to the designated person at Lakewood P.D. for disbursement. I will make sure they know the funds came from the members of NWFA Forum.

    Send to;

    Wichaka, do you have a PayPal account? Either way, I will see what I can do.

    I'd like to keep it off paypal, because of the fees they charge. Am trying to make the most of getting every cent to the families.
