The War On Police Hits New Disgusting Low In This Latest Attack

What happened to West Penn Township Police Officer Melissa Ruch is a reminder that there is no such thing as a “routine” call for cops. Whether on duty or off, a police officer’s life is always on the line. But this latest attack crosses a very despicable line.

Officer Ruch, who was apparently on her way to or from work, stopped to help what she thought was a disabled motor vehicle driver. When she stopped to help, she was attacked by the man, had her uniform slit, and was thrown 20 feet over an embankment. She was airlifted to a local hospital where David Boehm, state police trooper and public information officer for Troop L, Reading, said she is still being treated.

The driver was described as “a Hispanic male, 6’2″ to 6’4″, 240 to 260 pounds. He was wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans, the kind that go way down below your knees and possibly in a dark colored Nissan Maxima” and is still at large according to WNEP News.

Schuylkill Haven borough police Chief Jeffrey Walcott noted that what happened to Ruch is a sign of “how bad things are getting in society.”
