This book was suggested to me by an FTO in 1985. It left quite an impression. This murder happened the year after I was born. That is too long for a cop killer to live. I'm just glad he was never paroled.

Continued peaceful rest to Officer Ian Campbell.
As for the guy getting his last headline today...may he spend eternity missing the warm embrace of the California correctional system.

It's a shame it took so long and yours and my tax dollars had to try and keep him alive while someone else was starving on the street.'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!'

"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.
