Rest in peace.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.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

It's an oft over-looked problem among us...whether it's happening from street stress or internal stress, it happens way too much. RIP."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Brothers & sisters... don't be afraid to ask for help -- or to ask someone else if they need help.

While I can say I was never contemplating suicide, I went through depression, and probably a little PTSD, from a traumatic incident last year that I'm still getting over. And I know the feeling that asking for help is "weak".
We need to change as a culture to ensure that the people going through this know that it's not weak to recognize the need for help, and to ask for it. Like Dirty harry said, "A man's got to know his limitations".The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

This is another reason I started supporting LE.
I wish I could offer the support you need but maybe our presence here can help a little. I have 2 daughters that offer their support as well even though they're not members. You are not alone here on this site nor out there on your shifts. Our thoughts are with you and you are in our prayers...always.http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
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.
