President Trump calls murdered detective's son

Now President Trump has a phone and a pen.

And he used it to call Dane Gregory Marconi to offer his condolences over the murder of his father, San Antonio Police Department Detective Benjamin Marconi.

The lead investigator into this crime, Crime Scene Investigator Annie Patterson Campos, posted on Facebook:
President-elect Donald Trump offered his condolences to the family of slain SAPD Det. Benjamin Marconi Monday, his son said.
That was according to the San Antonio Express News. Her account is not public.

From the newspaper:
Benjamin Marconi, 50, was shot and killed Sunday during a traffic stop in downtown San Antonio around 11:45 a.m. McKane is accused of pulling up behind Marconi's cruiser while the detective was issuing a traffic citation and firing two rounds through the passenger window.
After a 30-hour manhunt, police arrested Otis Tyrone McKane, 31, who is accused of killing Benjamin Marconi. He told reporters Monday night he "lashed out at somebody who didn't deserve it" due to an ongoing custody battle for his son. 
"I've been through several custody battles, and I was upset at the situation I was in, and I lashed out at someone who didn't deserve it," McKane said. 
Detective Ben Marconi, a 20-year veteran of the police department, was rushed to the San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, KSAT-TV reports.
Police Chief William McManus said he was planning to meet with the family of the slain officer at the hospital after the press briefing Sunday afternoon.
Marconi was the father of two children, who are in their 20s, and became a grandfather earlier this year. 
Marconi’s late father, James Marconi, was a San Antonio police officer for 32 years, retiring as a detective investigator.
Too often we concentrate on the murderer and not the victim.

Now we have a president who cares about law enforcement officers.

God bless the Marconi family.


"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.


  1. RIP to Officer Marconi and my condolences to his family.

  2. Mr. Trump has CLASS. Looks like pretty high class.

  3. We note that Obama did not do this.

  4. His sons were always the criminal.

  5. The more of these families he calls the fewer of them there will be because he will show he cares which itself is intimidating to the reckless. Obama cares not jot which says"again is ok, try harder"

  6. I expect the Black Liberation Movement (Black Lives Matter) will be labeled a terrorist organization in two months.

  7. Obungler and Holder rooted for the thugs.

  8. Well, Dindu won't have to worry about child custody anymore.

    1. Damn straight there, brother. Time to dust off Ol' Sparky...

  9. A President actively supporting and promoting law enforcement should have a profound effect on their morale. Look for the police to re-energize after the continuous derision by the Obama administration. - Elric
