This year sucks.
This has not started as a banner year for me. In the past month, 2 officers that I work with have died, and another that recently retired passed away. There was a crash in the village where I work that involved 9 teenage girls. 3 of them died. Luckily, I wasn't working, but I know the parents, and the grief they have is beyond comprehension. My youngest daughter broke off her engagement and has moved back home. My wife and I went on vacation to Cancun, and the second day there, I slipped and landed on my hard framed backpack and broke a couple of ribs. There's nothing like spending a day in a Mexican Hospital. If the rest of the year keeps pace, I'll be lucky to make it to 2013!For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

Holy Mackerel! You need to reset the clock and go back to New Years Day and redo the last 6 weeks. You've been thru a lot. Stay focused. Take care of yourself.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

Apparently you didn't read the travel warning about going to Mexico'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

Hope you mend fast. I pray that the rest of the year is better for you and the family.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Can only go up from here, right?The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.
