    A few of you here have seen the chat and read what has happened.

    Tuesday evening an officer I call a friend was shot in the head and killed by a thug that should have already been off of the streets IMO. I have the HONOR to be able to help this family during this time with the funeral services for their beloved husband, father, son, brother. Another officer responding to the call was shot center of mass and thankfully survived because of his vest. Here is a brief summary of where we are today here in this city of roughly 30k citizens, and a background of the suspect. This is the first officer to be shot and killed in the line of duty here since 1950. The are numerous related articles as you can imagine that have run since Tuesday, but this one sums most of it up.

    There is another story that was published about the murderer's father, who is being held in prison now for murdering his cop-killing son's mother in 1993. I'm happy to say they may get to be acquainted with each other in prison, although the scumsucker's father is eligible for parole in March 2013, 20 years into a life sentence. Nice justice system.

    This officer leaves behind a wife, and three sons, ages 5,4,and 16 months. His obituary is here for those who care to read it.

    If you believe in prayer, I ask you pray for this family and his department. Anytime a life is taken is a bad time, and with Christmas here and three young children, it is especially tough.

    Just a shame stuff like that has to happen. If they would give them a quick speedy trial and hang them in the courthouse lots of that would stop. Prayers on the way.
