Remembering Deputy Michael Shannon
Nine years ago today at 10:49 a.m., Deputy Michael Shannon's life was taken from him. He wasn't scheduled to be on duty at that time but he had been in court testifying. After court, instead of taking the opportunity to return home, he stayed at the Sheriff's Department talking with another deputy. The call came in of a man threatening workers with a gun. Deputy Shannon knew this was a dangerous call and went anyway.
I was home with my girls at the time and received a call from a relative who had been listening to her scanner. She told me that an officer had been shot and then later called to tell me he died.
We are just as stunned and saddened today as we were 9 years ago. How anyone could kill an innocent person, especially a police officer, is beyond me.
We will never forget March 7, 2003. We certainly will never forget Deputy Michael Shannon.
Deputy Sheriff Michael Eron Shannon, Adams County Sheriff's Office, Wisconsin

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.

"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.
