...a donation will be made in the memory of those killed today in College Station.
Details about where to send the $$ are not out yet that I can find, but I know the downed law enforcement officer will have something set up soon. I will spread the donations to any funds set up in honor of the deceased civilians as well.

Geez, I go away for a few hours and all hell breaks loose. Whoa!
Full disclosure, which I've told some of you privately - I set this up on behalf of a family friend who wanted to generate some attention. Yes, I plan on donating (well, I actually already HAVE donated), but I have 2 backers that are putting up most of the money (covering the "per upvote" portion). I don't want this to seem like I'm the one giving all the cash, but the other guys want to remain anonymous. Needless to say, they are going to be shocked by the response today! I'm not sure what their ceiling is, but I'm sure we've hit it. And hopefully we've driven others to donate.
I am not sure what the amount of the donation will end up being, but I will report it if I can.
Donations in memory of Constable Brian Bachmann can be made directly here - https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=St6voDIG-WsdfZVkhy9JAScFJyKMGWIJGV5O_4GZl2fZmf1IJ649ao5MjBW&dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8da6a0e86558d6153d8812cd76bf2fd83f (I did not set up this PayPal account, but I got it from an Aggie website and Aggie Clinton Haby has put his name to it. It's legit.)
According to KBTX and The Eagle, the family of Christopher Northcliffe is still setting things up on their end. Frankly, this is the family that is driving this post. We knew the officer would get plenty of attention and wanted to make sure Northcliffe's family was not ignored. If anyone gets info on how to best donate to his memory, please post.
I am personally unfamiliar with setting up PayPal accounts to accept charitable donations. If anyone wants to start one for this purpose, feel free. I am just marketing the cause of the Northcliffe and Bachmann families.

great move. thank you for caring to do this.
Thanks JKates for doing this.
Care to setup a donation fund via PayPal or something? There may be some folks on the board that would put a little money in.
#94. Awesome job JKates.
Great idea! If it happens, i will be more than happy to donate.
I know there's a PayPal set up to donate to the fallen officer's family (http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=bachmannfamilyfund%40gmail%2ecom&lc=US&item_name=Bachmann%20Family%20Fund%EF%BF%BDcy_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF%3abtn_donateCC_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted), but I'm going to wait a week and make sure I can spread this around.
Outstanding. Thank you!

Good stuff, thoughts and prayers with the families.

I'm sure someone fatfingered the dOwnvote. No one would do that on purPose.
And we have a new upvote record?! Nice job with this Jason.
Outstanding move. Thanks JKates.
I will throw a few dollars in also.
Done. Thoughts and prayers to the family, friends, community.
Wish I could upvote multiple times.
