Death of Sgt. Greg Moore

A northern Idaho police officer was shot and killed Tuesday evening by a man who stole his patrol car.

Sgt. Greg Moore, 43, was rushed to Kootenai Medical Center shortly after the event occurred where he was pronounced dead at 5:50 in the evening, police spokeswoman Sgt. Christie Wood said in a statement (Huffington Post).

Sgt. Moore was out on patrol doing nightly checks of neighborhoods that had high car burglary activity. At 1:30 in the morning he was shot after checking on a suspicious person in one of the neighborhoods, Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Lee White said (NBC News).

A neighbor nearby heard the gun shots and called police after seeing the man stand over the body lying on the ground.

Police arrested Jonathan Renfro, 26, after a high-speed car chase that reached 125 mph. A police dog found Renfro underneath a tractor close to a nearby Walmart. He admitted in court that he pulled the trigger to investigators. “Renfro allegedly said he shot Moore because he had a gun in his pocket and knew Moore would find it. He admitted to shooting Moore with a 9mm Glock pistol he had in his coat pocket according to court records” (Krem).

Renfro was charged for attempted murder in the first degree, theft of a police vehicle, theft of an officer’s gun as well as being a felon with a gun. His bail was set at $2 million. He is now being held in the Kootenai County jail in Idaho.

There was a candle light vigil held for 16-year veteran of the city police department which a large crowd turned out for.

“”Our community has been wounded,” said Coeur d’Alene Mayor Steve Widmyer. “We have lost a great man.” (NBC News).



A girl gets hit by a school bus because of teen bullying.

It was a school year that was suppose to start like any other, except this time it was Cady Heron’s first time every attending a public school. Up until this point Cady lived in Africa with her parents and was homeschooled.

The first day of school is never easy, but Cady was able to befriend Janis Ian and Damian. However, she was also able to catch the eye of the three most popular girls in school, Karen Smith, Gretchen Wieners and most importantly Regina George. All Cady wanted to do was fit in and if that meant hanging out with the group who was referred to as “The Plastics” then that was what she was going to do.

Cady started to shop with “The Plastics” and hang out with them. She started to become one of them. With this new found popularity, Janis and Damien had a great idea to seek revenge through Cady for all of the horrible things Regina had done to them. They did various stunts to break up Regina and her boyfriend Aaron Samuels as well giving her “diet bars”, which were actually bars that were suppose to help you gain weight, not lose it.

Once Regina found out what Cady had been doing behind her back, she had her own plan of revenge. “The Plastics” had a scrapbook that was called “The Burn Book” and Regina was about to reveal all of the secrets which were written in it. Flyers were thrown all over the school halls and posted on all of the lockers of pages from this awful, gossip filled book. Some things that were said on the flyers were accusing a teacher of pushing pills, calling girls inappropriate names and even accusing someone of making out with a hotdog.

Regina ran out of the school once she had found out Cady knew what she had done. Cady ran after her to the sidewalk where Regina was standing. Trying to get away from Cady, Regina ran into the road where she was hit by an oncoming school bus.

A few days later, it was the schools prom night. Cady felt bad for everything that she had done over the year and planned on making amends. She was crowned prom queen and apologized to everyone she hurt by sharing part of the crown with them. After that night, everyone learned that it is better to work out your problems then seek revenge.
