    Remember that slime that killed four Oakland cops? My friend from childhood got the drop on him that day. Thank you Derek. I have known Derek since we were kids, we lived together after high school and since he was in the Green Berets, we had great rivalries. This man is a true American and my friend.



    OAKLAND, Calif. (KCBS) -- The Alameda County Sheriff’s Deputy who fired the shot that killed a parolee responsible for four Oakland police officer deaths has been named Deputy of the Year by the National Sheriffs' Association.

    Deputy Dereck Pope was with the Oakland Police Department’s SWAT team on March 21, 2009 when it entered the building where Lovelle Mixon was hiding.

    Mixon had fatally shot two motorcycle officers during a traffic stop. Two other officers who had tried to enter the building to apprehend him had also been shot to death when Pope and the SWAT team made their move.

    Oakland Deputy Police Chief Howard Jordan praised Pope for “actions that demonstrate the brotherhood of law enforcement.”

    Sgts. Mark Dunakin, Erin Romans and Daniel Sakai and Officer John Hege will be honored this May at ceremonies in Washington D.C. and Sacramento.

    Derek has always been a great man, always there to fight for the weaker kid, to stick up for the picked on, as an Eagle Scout, family man and good friend, he epitomizes the essence of an American. Both his brothers are in law enforcement, one a sniper the other a patrolman, all of them good clean American boys who have always done the right thing. I am proud to know all of them and that Derek made it through this ordeal by finishing the job he had to do. Lovelle Mixon? Enjoy hell.

    There aren't enough people like him in the world, unfortunately.

    I'm glad he's getting the recognition he so richly deserves!

    Odds are, he's done LOTS of heroic things, he's never gotten more than a pat on the back for.
