RIP- fallen officer YRPD Const. Garrett Styles



http://www.cp24.com/servlet/an/local.../?hub=CP24Home

York Regional Police Const. Garrett Styles was killed in the line of duty today.

"Const. Garrett Styles was dragged for 300 metres on Highway 48 near Newmarket after the vehicle he pulled over accelerated as he stood at the driver's door.

The unlicensed, 15-year-old driver of the minivan eventually lost control at the wheel, causing the vehicle to rollover, pinning the officer beneath."
Styles was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Styles, who had been on the force for seven years, was a father to two small children – a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter and a nine-week-old son. He would have been 33 come this Sunday.
Transcript of Const. Styles' radio call for help

For those who don't know 10-33 is the code for emergency, need backup/help me quick/emergency situation.

If you've not nothing good to say about the police, please keep your comments to yourself..

I don't think a cops life is more important than others, but it's sad when anyone dies this horribly.

I was thinking about this earlier and I really hope this kid doesn't get away under the YOA with some bullshit excuse of him being scared or nervous, I remembered dumbass 15yo kids in my school used to drive their parents cars all the time. Always hated it.

I think it is to some extent. Sure they aren't all John McClain, saving the world every waking moment. But unlike everyone else out there, they are not bystanders. They take on a job that requires them to not look the other way. I think that deserves a measure of assumed respect.

RIP and i hope the kid gets what he deserves, not by the law...but karma.
No doubt he would walk away with nothing more then a slap on the wrist.

I still dont see how this is more tragic then a truck driver loosing his life on the road, or construction worker in an accident building your house. No body should die at work, but people like solders/officers/firefighters DO have that possibility and should be fully aware before they take the job. If you look at the # of police officers who died on the job, you will see its safer then MOST jobs out there....(in the GTA it was about 8 in the last 30 years or so!)

agreed 100%.. a police officer is a safe job honestly. a lot of people get killed on the road in Ontario every year. What about that man who got hit by the 22 year old Mazda girl. He died on Farther's day, and left behind a wife and two children who were with him in the car he was driving.

I heard on the news yesterday that the kid fractured his spine in several places...and I think I heard the van was stolen?

Its sad to see anyone go because of stupid decisions made by other people who don't see or care what the consequences of their actions will be. RIP.

+1 farming & construction are way more dangerous statistically.

I want to see some evidence that working on a farm or construction is more dangerous than being a cop.

Even if it is, it's not the same. Cops and firefighters die helping others. People die doing other jobs solely for their own gain.

No ones life is more important than anyone elses, everyone is weighted the same. More people are sadened at the loss of a community member over some Joe Smoe that no one knows. Doesn't mean that Joe Smoes life wasn't important, just that less people know who he was.
