My prayers will definately be with the fallen, his friends, family and fellow officers.

A couple of guy's trying to do a job that few others want to do and struck down in their prime. Wishing the families, the coworkers, and friends, the strength to cope with the tragedy. My avatar will also be changed during this grieving period. I salute the fallen..

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

That is so sad and unneccesary. If the guy was so adamant about not going in, he should've just left town, weak.

I just found out my brother went to the academy with the Deputy that was killed and they were pretty good friends. He was also the husband of my Aunt's best friend. I didn't know it, but I had met him several times at weddings and LE functions. Awesome guy 40's married with two kids.

The Reedley Officer was a Vet of the Iraq war with the Marines. He is on life support and is brain dead. They're keeping him alive for organ donor status. He was a rookie cop of 2 years. He volunteered at every community function there was. He was 28, married with a baby girl at home.

This just keeps getting worse. The suspect who shot himself was being investigated for taking pot shots at the neighbors, lighting a fire under the trailer of neighboring elderly woman. No reason yet as to why they didn't use the SWAT team for the warrant service.

I am so sorry Darin, it just makes it so much harder when you actually knew the officer.

Darin, we've been through this many times before and it still doesn't get any easier. It doesn't matter whether your an active, retired, State, Fed, Local, or County officer, when things like this happens it's as if the knife was plunged into us also. All we can say is pass on our deepest sorrow and condolences to those involved and to all who knew both of the officers.
