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 was a Unites States Army veteran and had served with the 11-person Bladenboro Police Department for two years. He is survived by his mother and five sisters.

Roy yo probably deserved it LOL. One thing about my brother BJ I know for sure was if you got him it was game on! LOL he loved his job so much, he loved the little community that had adopted him as his own and He was a Patriot through and through.
He went to the Army when I was a small child, like 5 or 6, since he was so much older than me, but I remember his letters home, the packages we would send and the sheer joy I had when he would return! He planned a time home as a surprise when I was the Grinch in the school play and one of the times i went up the mountain to my house in the play there he was! He got me. I loved him beyond measure even with all his little quirks he was tough as nails on me as a kid and I once walked all the horses all afternoon and did all the chores at 8 for putting a horse back wet and dirty. I remember to never do it again!

A good patriots day to you all who serve us, to those who can no longer serve and the patriots who passed on! We got it from here Bro.

Thanks BJ for all the years of support and love too bad we lost you so soon I could use a brother right now!
See ya on the other side save me a good seat next to Mom you have had her long enough.
