Lowered flags in NH to honor slain MIT police officer


CONCORD – Gov. Maggie Hassan has ordered flags to half-staff on Wednesday in honor of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, who was shot and killed last week by the Boston Marathon bombings suspects.

"The bombings at the Boston Marathon and its aftermath have affected all of us in New England. We are united in our grief and in our pride in the law enforcement officers who gave so much to protect our people and bring the perpetrators to justice," the Governor said. "Sean Collier's dedication to protecting others reflects the very best of the American spirit.

"As we have heard so often in recent days, all he ever wanted to do was serve as a police officer and work to keep those around him safe, and his senseless murder has taken him from this earth far too soon. The people of New Hampshire join our neighbors in Massachusetts in mourning the loss of Sean Collier, and send our thoughts and prayers to his family and loved ones."
