NYPD Detective Killed By Suicide Bomber In Afghanistan

Larry Celona and Natalie Musumeci at the New York Post report on the death of a NYPD detective who was killed in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber.

An NYPD detective nicknamed “Superman” by his fellow cops was one of six US troops killed Monday in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan, where he was serving in the Air National Guard.
Detective Joseph Lemm, 45, of the Bronx Warrant Squad was killed when a bomb-laden Taliban assassin on a motorcycle targeted a joint American-Afghan patrol near a major US air base.

  1. There is always a problem with stories like this one: the other people are treated as less significant; that is a terrible problem.

  2. Tim,

    I'm not sure if it is that the other victims are less significant, but more that Lemm's story is more compelling and tragic.

    Thanks for writing,
