Only describes a police officer who had been killed. Acting on suggestion at Wikipedia:Deadend pages. [[User:Poccil|Peter O. (Talk, automation script)]] 23:42, Dec 16, 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Gang shooting victims are not particularly notable. If you're going to make an article about somebody only known for their cause of death, it better be good, like being shot by aliens with laser guns on top of the Kremlin. [[User:Livajo|Ливай | ]] 02:03, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Victim of a crime. Alas, in the US such persons are altogether too common. Geogre 02:10, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, sad, but not notable. --Spangineer 02:32, Dec 17, 2004 (UTC)
  • Abstain. Is there a place where I can check the news from that period to check notability? - Andre Engels 02:53, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, nn, there's something going on between the lines on this one. Wyss 03:35, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete --fvw* 03:35, 2004 Dec 17 (UTC)
  • Abstain. There might be something notable in the foundation founded after his death.
    • Would it make sense to have an article about the foundation, and describe Jimmy Wilson, Jr. there? If so, then create a Jimmy Wilson Jr. Foundation article and Merge. If the Foundation hasn't done anything particularly noteworthy, then Delete. Wikipedia is not a memorial, and unfortunately a police officer getting shot is not notable. --TenOfAllTrades 21:59, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Wikipedia is not a memorial. Rossami (talk) 22:24, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
