Couple of Thoughts On The Police Officer Shooting . . .

....today which happened in Tarrant County (but only a stones throw away from Wise County). The alleged gunman, after shooting the officer, reportedly fled to a random neighbor's house (occupied by a mother and daughter) and broke the door in. (1) According to Fox 4 News tonight "The mother managed to call 911 and escape but the daughter remained with the gunman." Say what? (Update: The "daughter" was 24 years old so that makes it a little different). (2) You have to like that shot of the the paramedic checking the guy's blood pressure after he had surrendered but before he was placed into the police car. (3) The injured officer (I hope it's only "injured") has a 9 year old daughter and 4 year old son.

The only thing better would if he did not have a blood presure to check.

I think the officer--shot in the head according to the "media"--is not going to survive. A tragedy.

Barry will probably offer to defend him for free and ask for a PR bond.

This guy is clearly responsible for this event. If he is mentally competent, he deserves to serve a long sentence. God will determine his ultimate sentence.

So proud of his Mom for telling it like it is. Apparently, she's had it up to there with him.
Perhaps, if more parents would stop ALWAYS defending their offsprings wrongs, the offsprings could take responsibility for their own behaviors.
