On CHP Officer Killed in Motorcycle Crash
Posted on November 2 at 7:06 a.m.
To rstein9's comment regarding "CHP Officer Killed in Motorcycle Crash" - For someone who would write such heartless, critical comments for the officer's family members and colleagues to read while grieving a senseless loss, shame on you. Your ignorance & implication that the officer was somehow at fault for choosing to ride a motorcycle is beyond comprehension. To educate you, Officer Martinez was considered an excellent, safe motorcyclist, and had just submitted his application to become a departmental motorcycle rider. It would serve the public better to suggest people driving a deadly weapon (car) adhere to all traffic laws and pay due attention to their surroundings.
Jarrod, may you rest in peace. It was an honor working with you & watching you develop into such a conscientious officer. The CHP has lost an individual who possessed flawless integrity and a strong work ethic. Your absence will leave a painful void at Shift Briefings, as well as through each tour of duty on C-Watch - a void which will never be filled by another. But know, Jarrod, we will carry on the same work ethic you demonstrated on a daily basis in your honor. Officer Jarrod Martinez, #19081, Santa Barbara Area CHP, End-of-Watch 10-29-09. Our lives are richer for having known you and we will do our best to care for your academy classmates and your family through this tragedy.
