What a shame, with two young'uns to boot! There's just a total lack of respect for law enforcement, seems to me, all through the states...Never heard of so many being shot and attacked!!! Our prayers do go out to this man's family!!
The criminal element has become more brazen it seems.If I am pulled over next time I would not fault an officer for approaching my vehicle with their sidearm in hand, as times have certainly changed. My condolences to the family of the Deputy and law enforcement officers who must approach a strangers car wondering if they'll be greeted with a smile or a bullet.
May God comfort his family. I have always said the worst law enforcement job is that of the deputy sheriffs and Highway patrolmen as the nearly always work alone far from back-up assistance in sparcely populated areas.
The only good thing about this case is the killer won't waste taxpayer money for a trial!!!
I'm sorry to read this. I feel for the family. My prayers for them.
Folks around here appreciate our LEOs. About four-five years ago a patrolman was killed the same way. The funeral was packed and when the hearse left town with the body, word got out and everyone on the highway stopped their cars, got out and stood at attention for its passage.
