John Wayne Haddock - Law Enforcement - Mississippi

Captain John Haddock, age 50, was killed in Mississippi, on October 7, 2011, when he was struck by a suspect's vehicle while deploying spike strips.

John was a member of the Grenada Police Department, in Mississippi, and had 21 years of service with the Department. He talked about retiring in a few years.

Michael, Prince in Heaven,
Patron Saint of the Police,
pray for John
Deputies from the county sheriff's office were pursuing a stolen car believed to contain two burglary suspects along Mississippi Highway 8. As the vehicle approached I-55 Captain Haddock exited his patrol car to deploy spike strips when he was struck by the vehicle, which was traveling at an estimated speed of 100 mph.

After striking Captain Haddock and the spike strips, the vehicle went out of control and crashed. Both suspects were transported to a local hospital.

Police officials stated that John had a young family; and that he was really proficient when it came to weapons. He trained a lot of young officers. They also stated that his experience will be hard to replace. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that John W. Haddock is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
