Brian Joe Ramey

Officer Brian Ramey was killed when his patrol car was intentionally struck by a vehicle being chased by officers from another agency on N.C. 211.

State troopers had begun chasing the vehicle when it was clocked at 90 mph. During the ensuing chase, the suspect ran three other patrol cars off of the roadway. Officer Ramey came to the assistance of the troopers and parked his vehicle on the left hand side of the roadway. As the pursuit neared his position, the suspect crossed the center line and struck his cruiser on the driver's side at 80 mph, completely crushing the patrol car. The suspect was also killed in the accident.

Officer Ramey had served with the 11-person Bladenboro Police Department for two years. He is survived by his mother and five sisters.

Brian today an officer was killed in south salt lake and all of the memories came flooding back. My eyes leak the feelings of loss and missing your voice. Luckily I still can remember its sound. I wish i could not remember the officer confirming on my vacation you had passed, how police cars would flash their lights as my van with the yellow ribbon on the antenna sped through Idaho and home into UT just to confirm it was true with mamma. Packing , 1000's of officers in dress uniforms all the white gloves left the folded flags and the apology of a police force on behalf of a town a world away who could never repay for a brother who answered car questions (ps my check engine light is on- but you can't answer if i called),gave guy advice and mostly bossed me around. Lol. Everytime another officer dies its like the break in my heart hurts all over again. Another funeral a dinner tp deliver in a few weeks and a family who will slip into anonimity another name added to a wall and another senseless death committed by yet another bad guy who they "were waiting to meet to press charges for." Had he been charged another officer would be at work and a baby a dad and less hearts will be broke.
Be safe patrolling the streets of heaven brother.
Eternally your sister
