The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to honor the Jackson police officer shot and killed while responding to a domestic dispute call four years ago. The House passed a bill naming the post office on Michigan Avenue in Jackson after officer James Bonneau. Bonneau was shot on March 9, 2010. He was able to radio for help to save the life of Blackman Township public safety officer Darin McIntosh, who'd also been shot. Congressman Tim Walberg sponsored the bill. "Officer James David Bonneau gave his life in service to the Jackson community. We acknowledge his ultimate sacrifice and we will never forget what he lived for, duty over self," Walberg said on the House floor Monday. The bill is now headed to the U.S. Senate.
