Prayers to the officer and family. If you have never been thru a shooting of a police officer, you will never understand how gut-wrenching it is—-even after you have retired.

Wouldn't it be nice to go just ONE DANG DAY without an officer being killed????? I pray so hard for all our LEO's everywhere but so many people just take them for granted.
