In light of this, I want people to know how glad I am when Smith comes home after work. (And I understand how angry he is right now.)

How would YOU handle it on a daily basis if your husband and the father to your kids, had a good chance of not making it home at night? I'm lucky, I have family and a group of friends whose husbands are officers to rely on. I hope I never have to rely on them for the kind of support the families of Sgt. Mark Dunakin, Ervin Romans, and Daniel Sakai, are getting now. I cannot begin to imagine how the family of Sgt. John Hege must feel, with him in the hospital, waiting to see if he makes it.

I get a kiss every morning before he leaves, and I make sure to give Smith one every time he walks back through the door to me. Their families won't be getting that greeting anymore.

I can't imagine their pain right now.

I tried to write more, but there just aren't any good words.

Life just plain sucks. It isn't fair what that shitbag did to those officers and their families.

Well said. The grief we all feel as a big family in blue is immense. It's times like this I subscribe to Dante's version of Hell-and the above mentioned shitbag is in the worst ring of Hell possible.
