Prayer and sympathy for all who were involved be they family and friends of the deceased and likewise concerning the defendant. Those who knew the Sheriff of this County, many of them would probably have a great deal of pent-up emotions regarding this matter, especially the family. In addition the defendant is alleged to have committed atrocious gut wrenching act which is contrary to the morals of most societies. This more than likely will probably become a death penalty case.

Emotions tend to run high in regards to these types of situations but that's one thing that we as a society cannot allow for we are governed by law and not by wim. When wim governs any peoples then that leads to a breakdown of society with the injustice of lynch mobs which gives rise to anarchy. This is why cooler heads must prevail. The evidence has to be critiqued and scrutinized to the absolute fullest for should we not do such then we would be no different than what we have accused the defendant allegedly doing. A death penalty case would be no light matter to take into stride for dealing with the human life must be a burden that any jury and/or any judge would have to weigh accordingly in the factoring of justice. In addition, what the person has allegedly done and what mitigating circumstances would have to go into contemplation also has weighed in the scales of justice. Every single iota of every single facet must be taken into account for the death sentence to be carried to contemplation or for a sentence to the factored into the equation.

You kill a L.E.O you should die & that goes for k9 also. This pos knew what he was doing when he shot this sheriff someone should put a bullet in his head as he's headed either in to his hearing or on the way back to jail no life sentence the only thing he deserves is a dirt nap

Once convicted he will never be the same. The inmates will no doubt violate him. Once executed then God will be the ultimate judge.
