    Even in Idaho police work can be risky.

    We had an officer involved shooting a couple weeks ago. Our three officers are okay, but the suspect didn't make it. A rough thing to happen in Christmas. Here is a link in case you are curious.

    I was working that night and heard the call of shots fired,but I wasn't involved. Between the shooting of the five officers in the Seattle area and events down here in my area (the shooting and another suspect arrested for plotting the murder of a local police chief) it has been a very intense six weeks for cops.

    Another link about the plotted murder of the chief. Homedale is south of Caldwell. The Homedale police chief was one of my instructors in the police acadamey ten years ago. I've even worked a case with him whne I was a detective with my department.

    So for those of us who are cops in the so-called "greener" pastures let these two stories be a lesson to you. Stay alert.

    And to everyone have a merry and hopefully peaceful Christmas.

    Excellent work on behalf of the officers.

    Can't agree more, but I think those of us in "quieter" areas can get lulled into a false sense of security despite our best efforts. Those two inccidents show that sense of security is false.

    I agree.... I wish I could get some of my partners to remember this
    '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!'
