HERO DOWN: Tupper Lake Police Mourn Young Sergeant’s Death

TUPPER LAKE — Family, friends and the Tupper Lake Police Department are mourning today after the death of Sgt. Matthew Dana, who was 27 years old.

He died Sunday evening at the Tupper Lake home he shared with his girlfriend. An autopsy investigation is still underway as several reports are pending, so the cause of death was unavailable Monday evening.

Dana entered the Tupper Lake Police Department as a part-time officer in 2012 after he finished college, then full-time in 2013 after he finished the police academy.

“Matt was very intelligent; he caught on very quickly,” village Chief of Police Eric Proulx said Monday. “He demonstrated those skills very early on that he could handle being a supervisor.”

Dana was promoted to the rank of sergeant on Sept. 21, 2016, on Proulx’s recommendation. Results of his country sergeant civil service exam have not been posted yet.

Dana actively pursued narcotics investigations with a strong desire to alleviate Tupper Lake’s drug problem. Sitting on the Franklin County narcotics task force, executing search warrants and performing undercover operations, Dana worked diligently and was well-liked by co-workers and the public alike.

“A lot of my officers looked up to him,” Proulx said, “even if they were older than him.”

Proulx appreciated his work ethic. According to him, when Dana took overtime, it was money well spent.

“I trusted him to do his job. I trusted his decision making,” Proulx said. “He made the community a better and safer place to live. He helped take a number of drug dealers off the street and bring them into the justice system.”

Outside of the police force, Dana liked to be outdoors, hiking and fishing. He was a graduate of Tupper Lake High School in the Class of 2008, North Country Community College in the Class of 2010 and the State University of New York at Canton in the Class of 2012.

He has many friends from college and the police academy, with dozens of them — along with his family and Tupper Lake friends — changing their profile pictures and banners on Facebook to an image of a thin blue line with his name to memorialize and remember him.

“He was an outgoing, enthusiastic, fair person who tried to treat everybody the same way and tried to make Tupper Lake a better place,” Proulx said.

Dana’s family said they would like to leave some time before commenting.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7 at the Tupper Lake Christian Center at 102 Main St. in Tupper Lake. A funeral service will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at the same location.

  5. 3 Facts you need to know about JEWS: FIRST FACT: The Holocaust never happened. Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page ebook. It proves the Holocaust is a hoax. SECOND FACT: 9-11 was done by Israel’s Mossad. Google “Masters of Deception PDF” and read that 240 page ebook. It proves that Mossad and top Jews in America committed the 9-11 terrorist attacks. THIRD FACT: Jews are the ones behind pushing for mass immigration from 3rd world countries into the West, Jews created feminism, Jews created communism, Jews control Hollywood, Jews control the banking system, Jews started all the wars as Jews are in top government positions that push for wars, Jews own the media (85 of the media in America is owned by jews).

  9. I will delete all my anti-jew posts if the Zionists offer me a job working as an online shill for them. I will use my website and my other methods of making content go viral online for the purpose of promoting the Jew’s agenda of multiculturalism, destruction of the white race, pro-transexualism, socialism, etc. I am ready to work for the Zionists and stop all propaganda efforts to expose the Jew’s agenda.

  12. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com

  16. The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!

  17. I was speaking with a good friend of my own on this and even about aptoide market too. I do think you made some good points here, we’re excited to read more stuff from you.

  18. The holocaust never happened. 6 million jews did NOT die!!! Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page free eBook. It’s time to wake up, people. Stop believing the lies the jewish media and Jew hollywood is constantly pumping out.

  19. We need to legalize prostitution immediately. The main reason is so that men can have an easy sexual outlet and thus instead of wasting massive amounts of their mental energy on trying to get sex from women, men can simply PAY MONEY FOR SEX and then spend the rest of their time doing whatever they want to do. Of course women don’t want to legalize prostitution. If men could get sex easily and cheaply, most men would no longer bother dating or marrying women and thus women would no longer be able to act as financial parasites off of men. Legalizing prostitution is the GREATEST thing we could do to sexually liberate MEN! Or, here’s an even cooler idea. American men could simply travel to Tijuana, Asia, Germany, Amsterdam, Thailand, etc, where prostitution is already legal. Most western women, i.e. WHITE women are useless shit anyway so even if prostitution was legalized in America, you would just see a bunch of fat ass white bitches becoming prostitutes. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! Even a fucking prostitute from a 3rd world country is a better deal than normal American women. That’s how fucking useless most white western women are. Anyway aside from that, I wrote an essay called “Are Prostitutes Better than Normal Women?” here: http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30801
