When an active shooter moves through an area, you never know who they are going to target or why. All you can do in the moment is try to stop them.

Shooting Rampage

Around 2:45 p.m. June 26th, Nathan Allen took a plumbing companies box truck and crashed it into an empty home. Allen had two guns with him as he fled the scene.

According to WVIT, his first victim was 60-year-old Air Force veteran Ramona Cooper. Allen shot her three times in the back. Retired Massachusetts State Trooper David Green stepped in.

He was fatally shot. According to his neighbor and friend Nick Tsiotos, "That's Dave. He went there to save other people."

Helping Out

Tsiotos believes Green likely heard the crash and went to help.

“I think Dave kept people alive by heroically dying because this man was deranged. He gave his own life, made the ultimate sacrifice for others.”

In a press conference, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins called Green's death an "execution. The retired officer was shot four times in the head and took three shots to his mid-section.

Rampage Motivation

Green died at the scene, while Cooper was taken to the hospital for treatment and later died of her injuries. Rollins believes that the shootings were in fact, race-related.

According to investigators, Allen said "anti-Semitic and racist statements against black individuals." He also "walked by several other people that were not black and they are alive. They were not harmed.”

Green had served in law enforcement for 36 years, retiring in 2016. Massachusetts State Police Colonel Christopher Mason said Green began as a Metropolitan District Commission officer in 1980.

He moved to the State Police when the departments merged.

“Trooper Green was widely respected and well-liked by his fellow Troopers, several of whom yesterday described him as a ‘true gentleman’ and always courteous to the public and meticulous in his duties. From what we learned yesterday, he was held in equally high regard by his neighbors and friends in Winthrop.”

Laying Down His Life

Law enforcement, first responders, and citizens lined the streets so they could salute the procession as it took Trooper Green's body to the medical examiner.

Green knew that stepping up to help was the right thing to do, even if it was no longer his job. Unfortunately, doing the right thing cost him his life.

  1. This Trooper is an example of Law Enforcement’s bravery and selfless commitment to protect all people. He was a true hero and gave it all.

    1. RIP MR. GREEN !!!!!!!
      This is so sad, but with the DEMOCRATS pushing race BS,it's getting worse. Funny thing is, the black man that killed 5 people because they were WHITE and oppressing him, didn't make any headlines !!!!!!!!

    2. Unfortunately, there are more and more "law enforcement" agencies across the country were protect and serve are no longer even in their vocabulary. They are simply a money making mechanism for the municipality or entity they serve. I personally have witnessed vandalism on a school property, after hours, but when I informed a sheriff's deputy, literally sitting in his car a block away reading a magazine, I was told "I am not on duty for another 15 minutes." All he would need to do was simply show up but he was unwilling, Mind boggling.

  2. ...and the libs and demos want to defund police? ....and the defunders want protection when their lives are in danger at their homes?....FOR THE 2022 ELECTIONS VOTE OUT THE USA DIVIDERS AND DESTROYERS....We need Trump and his ideas.....America first!

    1. I would vote for removing the two term rule for Presidents if it were only Trump. He had done more for the country that any President that I have ever read about.
      As far as Mr. Biden, I think he is a fraud. He wants to remove anything that is good for the country.

  3. I say you bo NOT take these (people) alive, put them down on the spot. No need to be housing and feeding them the rest of there useless lives. Crime will never be a problem with that solution..

    1. Thank you for your service. There has never been a time when an officer has been anything but kind to me. (Even when one caught me going 65 in a 45 zone. Just a warning.)

      1. greatful for your service one thing wrong with these commits is many are to young to remember some of the great, what they did, who they are and were and that is important to some of us. It is not just who is today for many of us who were a part of then. and actually do remember

  4. RIP MR. GREEN !!!!!!!

  5. God bless our police officers and may these victims Rest in Peace. CRT is being pushed down our throats and is meant to divide our country apart. This is sadly the result of that. Our leaders have to know what they are doing is going to start conflict, and sadly it's working.

  6. i realize the first instinct it to repay violence with more violence. Think what Biden and company are trying to do. they want the violence to escalate to they can declare all conservatives as terrorist and arrest them like they did to the people on January 6th which was not an insurrection, can't have one without weapons.
    do not let them get the upper hand and declare all of us to be what they are in fact are.

  7. The Hampton, NH Police Department is the best in the entire state. They are having serious problems to hire new officers, as nobody wants to become a member of the police because of the false statements in all the media making the Police the enemy.

    The ultra left wing idiots are trying to ruin this country. And they are doing it. During demostrations that become violent, the police should shot a few of the LOOTERS. End of problem!!!

  8. The race dividing thats going on by the Democrats and there media has to stop ! There the reason this is happening there is mentality evil sick people out there and they feed off this garbage. I pray for the family's of both victims of this senseless violence and I I thank them both for there service to us all and may you both rest in peace with our lord.
    This race baiting crap has to stop it dosnt matter what color we are were all Americans and the Democrats and there media need to stop this dividing America sham. As it all by design . Stop it !!

  9. Another officer laying down his life, to protect the residents of his community .
    Imagine if these brave souls, were not around, because of the Democratic decision to eliminate law enforcement .

  10. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
