Worcester Police Officer Manny Familia Was A Hero Who Proudly Flew The Thin Blue Line Flag, Which Now Symbolizes Him


It was a horrible day for law enforcement in Massachusetts as Worcester Police Officer Manny Familia drowned trying to save the lives of drowning teenagers, and two Braintree police officers were shot and a K9 killed by a shooter who ambushed them.

Manny Familia was a 2001 graduate of Doherty High School. Doherty was our arch-rival in everything at South, and Manny was an excellent basketball player. Although I did not know him personally, Worcester is a small town and those who did know him say he was well respected, loved, and a caring father of a 13 year old boy who recently celebrated his birthday.

On Facebook Manny commemorated the deaths of fall officers Michael Chesna and Sean Gannon when they were murdered in 2018.

Manny was a big promoter of the thin blue line, which has become under attack by mostly white liberals in wealthy towns, who have branded it as a symbol of racism and hate.

He didn’t shy away from it either. He appeared front and center at a back the blue rally at the Statehouse with Rayla Campbell.

Manny was not white, but proudly flew that flag anyway. He knew what it represented. The flag now symbolizes Manny Familia and the sacrifice he made on Friday. He gave his life trying to save children who were drowning. Children he didn’t know. It was another day at work, he responded to a call, and within minutes his life was over.

I don’t know the details of how he drowned. I know that the pond is part of Green Hill golf course, and I’ve never, ever in my 39 years of living in and around Worcester ever heard of anyone swimming in that pond.  I assume that water is filthy, filled with muck, gunk, and forms of life. Drowning victims flail their arms and legs and will do anything to survive, including drowning the person who is trying to save them.

It was 1:35 PM when it happened. The 14 year old who drowned was not a Worcester Public School student (this took place right near Worcester Tech High School), so why wasn’t he in school? Why were 3 kids swimming in this disgusting pond if they didn’t know how to swim? These are questions that deserve to be answered.

All I know is I never want to hear another word about defunding the police.

    Why don’t you go ahead and enlighten the rest of us what happened that day that caused the officer to drown then, and do you know if ALL the kids were from out of state? Why don’t you use your “google machine” and tell us, because I can’t find those answers online, and definitely didn’t know much of anything on the day this article was originally posted.

    Fun Fact:
    One of the most pernicious myths about police shootings is that officers shoot unarmed black men at an alarming rate, when in fact just 2% of the people who were killed by an officer were unarmed and black. Since the beginning of 2015, law enforcement officers across the country have actually killed 33 more unarmed white people than unarmed black people.
    Don’t Facts just Suck!

      Thank you Woodman for stating true facts about police officers. The data is there if only leftest cunt Cowley took her head out of her ass and did some fuckin research.

      If I remember correctly it was something like 10 unarmed black people were killed by police in 2019. Total. And most of them were only unarmed in the sense that they didn’t have a gun or a knife in hand at the time they were killed – a couple of them were killed in the act of actively trying to run a cop over with a car.

    Sad and unfortunate. But the first rule of water is you DO NOT jump in to save someone IF you are not a life guard/strong swimmer/have a flotation device etc. Even then it’s risky. Yes it would suck to see someone drown, especially a kid, but all you do is make the situation worse, and now there are two bodies instead of 1. Probably didn’t get clothes off, safety vest off, etc, and then went in and black murky water and a drop off and that’s all she wrote.
    There will be more, probably at Lake Quinsig. Happens every year because dumbass non-swimmers go in the water past their knees.

    Rip to the officer and his family.

    The family was from Virginia… and the kid knew how to swim… prob why they didn’t know not to go into the pond- some counties in VA school years end the first and second week in June-definitely why the kid wasn’t in school in Worcester at 1:30 in the afternoon. Not much of a conspiracy here TB, just heartbreaking tragedy. You should check out this new google machine- it’s like a magic 8ball- it knows all the answers

      Nobody said it was a conspiracy asshole, TB was just asking questions that many people have, (people that didn’t know the victim that is).

      This is tragic, I would suspect the cop either had a medical incident, or as you said the victim may have pulled him down attempting to save themselves.

        I didn’t know either of the victims or anyone on scene, the google machine gave all the answers! Like I said it’s a tragedy but a little investigating goes a long way assbreath.

    What goes around, comes around. On a positive note, he won’t be shooting any black kids or bipocs anytime soon.
