RIP Officer Sean Collier
- Last night around 10:30pm, MIT Police Officer Sean Collier was killed when he responded to a disturbance on campus. Today, co-workers and friends have praised Sean for his kindness, good humor and courage.
Collier's roommate, who trained with him at the police academy, described him as “the guy who went to help” and faulted him for being too brave. He summed up last night's events in a tearful interview with the Boston Globe, “The best guy got shot down by the biggest scumbags.”
Godspeed Officer Collier. And God bless all the first responders who were a credit to their professions once again under circumstances that would break and shatter those who are so quick to criticize in other events.
