Victor Lozada-Tirado lost his life in the accident

A DALLAS police officer taking part in a motorcade escorting Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign entourage was killed on Friday when his motorcycle lost control along a viaduct.

Clinton, seeking the Democratic nomination against Barack Obama, continued with her campaign event in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, but stopped a rally that had been scheduled later.

"It is deeply, deeply tragic that this loss occurred and I know that our thoughts and our prayers are with his family, with those with whom he served on a daily basis to protect the people of Dallas," Clinton told her supporters in Ft. Worth.

She said holding a rally was not appropriate "because of this tragedy." Clinton aides said the New York senator planned to meet privately with the officer's family.

Dallas police said Senior Corporal Victor Lozada-Tirado's motorcycle struck a kerb and went down. As the motorcade passed, skidmarks were evident near the fallen motorcycle, which was in the left lane of the two-lane Houston Street Viaduct. The incident occurred shortly after the motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.

As the motorcade continued, a fellow officer attempted to comfort the injured motorcyclist before emergency medical technicians arrived. Dallas police said officer Lozada Tirado was transported to Methodist Central Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The picture shows 3 Kawasakis and a Harley, so how do you know...or were you just being a smart arse?

So Hillary's decided to cancel the planned rally "out of respect" for the dead officer? Since when did a nakedly ambitious presidential candidate cancel a campaign rally because one of the hired help (if you'll excuse the term) had an accident?

Considering that it's highly likely she's going to lose in Texas, it sounds more like she's using this as an excuse not to waste any more time and money campaigning there. Either that or it's a cynical attempt to sway the Latino vote.

If he was on a Harley it was probably suicide after someone he knew recognised him

So no jokes allowed about Darwin award candidates then???

FWIW ( not sure why I am bothering with you..) it was ACTUALLY a piss take about Harleys..but I forgot about the abilities of some people to actually read and comprehend..

I have picked up more than my fair share of dead bodies, delivered death messages, and helped people come to terms with their loss, including the losss of colleagues that were serving police officers....I feel I have earnt the right to take the occassional poke at an american motorcycle manufacturer...

as I said you really are a humourless twat

I wonder what it was that made him late for work that day?

gedge... i don't doubt you've done many remarkable things in yer life. i'm sure you're happy within yourself... no problem. i'm simply stating imo that the fact your taking the piss outta some bloke who happened to die is a little untoward... simple as that. i'm not making any underhanded comments, simply stating the way i felt after reading your comment. no hidden meaning

harley jokes, not a problem - i feel the same way.... perhaps it was the suicide reference

LENSKINED - this has what to do with you exactly? ... i'll bet you jump on any bandwagon going do ya?

As I said, I wasnt actually taking the piss out of the cop that died, on the contrary I am always saddened by such things.. You appear to be the only one that failed to see that it was about the Harley and not the death of the cop..if it did upset you then I am sorry....although I suspect if the death of stranger thousands of miles away upsets you badly enough to wish a fatal accident upon someone for writing such a thing then perhaps the internet is something you should steer clear of

Did that bloke that owns Harrods do it?
