I know them both. Not only are Paul and Ed true stand-up guys, they and their department have a real emotional investment in this case. Josh can burn in hell...

Think the "court supervised visits only" order could be extended after death, otherwise he must stay a minimum of 500 feet away at all times?

"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.
