Officer Bauer was killed when he was intentionally run off the road while attempting to stop a suspicious vehicle. The vehicle had been stolen and the occupants were wanted for the shooting of another officer two days earlier. As Officer Bauer attempted to stop the vehicle the driver intentionally struck the rear of his motorcycle, forcing him through a guard rail and down a 40-foot embankment. Officer Bauer was transported to Emergency Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries at 0200 hours.

I want to make sure that this hero is remembered. No matter how much time passes this is a tremendous loss for our nation, it always will be. You are never forgotten. I am a practicing Roman Catholic and I have said many prayers for this hero. I will be going to mass on Sunday February 7, 2016 for this American hero and again with my cursillo (cursillo is a retreat that Catholics attend) group on Tuesday night February 9 at 7:30pm EST. In the Bible John is the beloved and this John is loved.
