Colorado Police Victim a Pastor, Hero, and Servant

Colorado police victim was more than just a cop...he was a pastor, husband, and father too.

Garrett Swasey…the lone cop casualty when a man walked into a Planned Parenthood and started shooting  yesterday was 44 years old and father of two and a husband. Five more police officers were injured. Here’s what the media won’t tell you.

He was a championship ice skater. Swasey and skating partner Christine Fowler won the junior national ice dancing championship in Orlando, Florida, in 1992.

He was a volunteer pastor and elder.

Crowdfunding page set up for only a day has raised over 50k as an educational fund for his children.

Sadly, Obama didn’t allude to this hero in his statements about the tragedy. Again, his emphasis was on gun control. He said, “People need to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”  Oh and let’s not forget the anti-abortion crazy who shot up the place. But please, not all of us are like him.
