INTERNAL MEMO OF THE MARION COUNTY, OREGON SHERIFF'S OFFICE
As most already know, MCSO Deputy Kelly Freidenberg, 33 yrs, died in an on-duty traffic crash at 2335 hrs., Sat, 6/ 16/07, on Hwy 99E near St. Louis Rd, (south of Woodburn).
Dep. Freidenberg was responding code-3 to cover a Gervais Officer. While responding, Dep. Freidenberg was travelling south on Hwy 99E, south of Woodburn. As approaching on-coming traffic yeilded to the right, another northbound vehicle suddenly swerved around the yeilding vehicles, crossing the center line, going into Dep. Freidenberg's lane.
Dep. Freidenberg's patrol car was struck head-on by the northbound vehicle. The impact area was near the right shoulder of the highway of Dep. Freidenberg's lane.
After impact, Dep. Freidenberg's patrol went into the ditch, then rolled several times and came to rest on the drivers side.
On the arrival of the first Officers, (from Woodburn PD), a fire had started in the engine compartment of Dep. Freidenberg's patrol car. Three Officers and a civilian tried to pull Dep. Freidenberg out of the patrol car but could not due to Dep. Freidenberg being pinned in. The responding Officers used their fire extinguishers in an attempt to put the engine fire out, but could not. The fire continued spreading and engulfed the vehicle.
On the arrival of Fire Dept units, the fire was extinguished. Dep. Freidenberg died at the scene.
In the second vehicle were the driver and two passengers. The driver was taken to OSHU in Portland, one passenger died at the scene and the second passenger left the scene and went to Salem Hospital. OSP is investigating the crash.
Dep. Freidenberg had been a MCSO Deputy for nearly two years and prior to that worked at Polk Co. S.O. for six years.
SPD Trauma Team is assisting the MCSO Trauma Team and with the memorial service. Once the time and date is set, another email will be sent out, (likely to be either Thursday or Saturday, 6/ 21 or 23). SPD Trauma Team contact people at this point are Ofc. Carpenter, Det. Bales and myself.
At this point, meal arrangements for the family are being coordinated through MCSO who will let us know of the needs. Currently, coverage for the next week is covered.
A trust account is being set up today should anyone wish to make a donation. Information will be sent out once we get receive it.
Additional information will be sent out as it becomes available.
This happens several times a day!!
This happened at least 3 times in Florida last year - Lake or Polk County, I think.
Counting down to the first person here who says, “Well, I’m sure Americans kill with their cars too.”
And ?Geraldo Rivera can’t wiat to go on TV and explain why the deputy sheriff was the one at fault.
Whorealdo was born in NY and his name is Jerry Rivers. A**h*** always tries to cash in as an Hispanic...POS!!!!
We’re looking at 20,00 American victims per year due to illegal alien robberies, burglaries, rapes, drunken driving murders, shootings, drive-bys gangs, fraud etc.
Mihad stricks again. We need to rise up.
With this leadership, it’s going to happen eventually.
send bush mama a photo of her south of the border mexican kin
cair is next
Then this will become a standard post for me on these kinds of threads.
RICO lawyers could turn it around in a few years and MAKE MONEY at the same time. Im surprised they havent done it already.
In the absence of enforcement, we can get the word out in the meantime that there is money to be made in filing RICO lawsuits against employers who hire illegal aliens.
Employers would have no trouble shutting down the border if they could get sued by someone under the RICO statutes for hiring these people in the first place. The next time an illegal alien kills someone in a drunk driving accident or somesuch thing, Im going to point out that the victims family might be able to seek compensation from the employer under these statutes in the hopes that it would catch on. If this did catch on, would see such a swift backlash against illegal immigration that no employer would go near these people and theyll all simply want to go back home.
the illegals and greyhound.....leave the driving to us!!!!
whore~aldo will go on Fox and argue that it is fault of the US not the illegals....he demands that the US not only give them drivers licenses...but also give them cars!!!!
stop amnesty/close the borders/kick them out!!!!
as jorge bush and congress polls numbers fall in the US ... they rise in mexico!!!
who are they representing..it certainly is NOT the US taxpaying law abiding citizens!!!!
What state was this in? You might put the state in paragraphs after the title.
It happened in Oregon.
Prayers for the officers family.
WHOOPS! No posting before coffee! Sorry!
Prayers for his family and friends....May God grant them comfort and ease their pain.
I would like to say something really nasty (but true and deserved) about Bush, who through his dereliction of duty contributed to this tragedy, but I’m simply too numb from this kind of thing any more. I never believed I could loathe a Republican POTUS as much as I do now.
Just say NO to Illegal Alien Amnesty!! Keep calling!! Its NOT OVER!!

Thanks, he was my son-in-law’s trainee when he came over the the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Like you, I hope he was killed suddenly. The rescuers had to back off because ammo was going off in the fire. I wonder what will happen to the illegal alien driving the other car.
I perused the online version of the Salem Statesman-Journal. Not one word about the driver and passengers of the car that stuck the officer. No names, no immigration status, big fat nothing. This is another attempted cover-up. Oregonians are fed up with the damage, human and otherwise, being caused by these illegal invaders.
“Prayers for his family and friends....May God grant them comfort and ease their pain.”
RK: I agree. However, if you note from the report, the author is very, very careful not to mention the sex of the cop, obviously for politically correct reasons, because “we’re all the same.”
But “Kelly” is the first name. Kelly is traditionally a female name in the U.S.
I assure you he was a guy. Wife, two daughters 13 and 3. His funeral was today.
I assure you he was a guy. Wife, two daughters 13 and 3. His funeral was today. The driver is an illgal alien returning from a wedding with two male relatives. The driver was seriously injured, the front passenger was killed and the one in the back seat was gone when additional officers arrived. he was found at a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Not to mention, initial reports say that alcohol was not involved. That stretches credulity.
Sorry, Inspectorette: I didn’t know you’re from the beaver state. We used to live there, but moved on. Dau & S.I.L. live and work in the Salem area and are intimately familiar with the details. It’s truly, as you say, sad and infuriating on many levels for us. Thanks for your thoughts.
Source please? I'm in Marion County and this is the first I've heard about this.

As you no doubt know, our legislature went Democrat in November, and of course, Gov. Kulongoski is a liberal Democrat. (Hard to imagine that, given his background growing up in a Catholic orphanage, and service in the USMC.) Needless to say, our politicos are in the tank for illegal immigrants. You probably also saw that Portland mayor Tom Potter was outraged at the immigration raid at Fresh Del Monte last week. :-(
Thank you for your service to our country, both in the military and in law enforcement
Thanks. It has been my honor and privilege to serve.
We pray it wasn’t so, but I don’t really know. What have you heard?
The Salem Statesman-Journal has been severely criticized for publishing an interview with the witness who attempted to rescue him from the burning vehicle. The account was graphic and disturbing. God bless this officer and his family, and the man who attempted to save him.
There was a 400 car funeral procession to the cemetery yesterday in Salem. They put a map in the newspaper for us!
His brother attends my church. God bless Kelly!
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
Please notify me via FReepmail if you would like to be added to or taken off the Oregon Ping List.

There was also an initial cover up by the state police on the legal status and even the names of the perps.
I guess Teddy will be adding drivers ed to the bill so those illegal Americans will stop killing us.
Here is the letter I wrote to the President:
May 31, 2007
The President The White House Washington DC 20005 Dear Mr. President:
Having been involved in immigration issues for more than thirty years, I feel compelled to tell you the story of why I came to the conclusion I have reached regarding this issue.
I was born in the State of Ohio in 1946 shortly after my father returned from World War II. The family moved to Burbank, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, and settled into the good life in the San Fernando Valley. The children grew up color-blind and without any prejudices as far as I know. We were permitted to play with the black children who lived down the street until they moved away after some bigot burned a cross on the lawn of their house. My family was outraged that such a thing would happen.
Later, I joined the Los Angeles Police Department. While employed there, I was tasked with publishing the Special Order that stated Alien status in itself is not a matter for police action. The order was published in 1978, and what followed was a virtual tidal wave of undocumented (illegal) aliens. For you see, the order was code for a policy established by the well-known and liberal Steven Reinhardt, (now 9th circuit court justice) who as you must be aware is married to Ramona Ripston, the head of the ACLU in southern California.
Previously, officers in law enforcement agencies across the states bordering Mexico acted as de facto border patrol agents, catching undocumented aliens and turning them over to the Immigration & Naturalization Service. This practice had the practical effect of suppressing the numbers of illegal border-crossers.
Since 1978, the problem has become a nightmare for law enforcement. Lawful arrests of aliens are frequently not prosecuted, murder, rape, robberies and other violent crimes as well as property crimes have ballooned, well, you know
So, now we are faced with a genuine crisis that can only be ignored at the risk of our sovereignty and we have a senate bill that offers a virtual amnesty if not an articulated one. The security of our borders cannot be delayed, or explained in terms of Well get to it as soon as we get this registration part done.
You have accused us, your base of losing its great capacity to absorb newcomers Mr. President, weve absorbed more than 12 million new comers whose first act was to violate our laws and sovereignty and dont want to assimilate!
We are not hate-filled bigots; we are the people who believe in the Rule of Law. We are the people who pay our taxes, go to church, work hard, vote, and just want those people who come to America to do the same. Is that too much to ask?
May God continue to bless you and your mission.
Great letter. I hope someone is reading them. I’m on a 3:3:3 schedule: 3 faxes, 3 phone calls, 3 letters, per day — at least until this fiasco is over.
Sometimes, seatbelts don’t help.
