I am amazed this hasn't come up until now. Am I missing the thread?
Got me, I see a lot of dead cops pics online but none with that name
Sad and senseless.
The details have been pretty sparse until tonights news.
That was senseless. He was a reserve officer I believe.

Absolute senseless loss to his family!
This is close to home in more ways than one. Our prayers are going out to his family.
Procession cruised by my business today. Very a moving.
Makes you wonder...? Prayers for the family. R.I.P. Officer Libke.
"He Answered The Call"
Today in the sun, I bid him farewell
A man, a hero, I never knew well
Like many before him, who answered the call
Wearing a badge, he was destined to fall
Though by choice a long life and a happy old age
Would he have chosen, had he written the page
But the office he chose never promised long life
Just half of his salary, for his child and his wife
He went without fear, into the darkness of night
Bringing comfort to some, to some others light
Easing their pain and calming their fears
He did his duty, never asking for cheers
A husband, a cop, he answered the call
We bid him farewell for he gave his all
Sergeant ~ Norfolk (VA) Police Department
Prayers to his family.
He was the first police officer in nearly 100 yrs to lose their life in Oregon City.
This sounds like an intentional ambush. Light a fire, shoot a cop! Unless my memory is at fault, wasn't there an almost identical incident back east at the time of Sandy Hook?
RIP Officer Libke. Bless his family.
I would think so but the shooter was a 88 year old man. Really makes you wonder though of the why.
2nd that, and to him also. Everyone close to him.

ABOUT THE OREGON FALLEN BADGE FOUNDATION
There is a website that you can donate to the family.
My thoughts are, will his wife and kids get any benefits since he was a volunteer as a reservist and not actually employed by Oregon City ?
The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation (OFBF) was founded in the spring of 2011 by several Oregon law-enforcement honor-guard commanders and coordinators. It provides support for the planning and execution of law-enforcement memorial services throughout the state in order to ensure fallen officers are given the full honors to which they are entitled.
Funded entirely by private and public donations, the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. As such, all donations made to the foundation are tax-deductible. Anyone wishing to donate to help support and offset the costs of the memorial service may do so at this time on the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation website at:
Additional information about the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation is available on their site: Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation
I don't know why but i feel like it's worse that he was a reserve. I've looked closely into becoming one and what you have to go through and what you get, on top of still doing your own job, seems even more of a waste somehow.
Seems the old guy went off his rails, here's more info
