Important UPDATE!!!!

Kevvboy has started a diary with links on contributing to the family.
Please contribute if you can.

Around 4:40 PM Sunday, Police Officer Bruce St. Laurent was killed while riding his police motorcycle in the President Obama Motorcade near West Palm Beach Florida. He was struck and killed by a white pickup truck while performing his duties on I-95.

From CNN

The officer from the Jupiter, Florida, police department was transported around 4:40 p.m. to St. Mary's Medical Center in nearby West Palm Beach after being critically injured in a crash. The man -- identified as Officer Bruce St. Laurent -- later died at the hospital, Jupiter police Chief Frank Kitzerow told reporters late Sunday
Obama was notified of the death, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters after Air Force One landed in Washington. The president's thoughts and prayers are with the officer's family, according to the spokesman.
The President did not see the accident. No other motorcade vehicles were involved.

Please put Officer St. Laurent and his family in your prayers...
Please no politics.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
