I agree it is a sad world and our country is in the midst of many crises; financial, health care, psycholoigical, and sociological. Drugs are running rampant and drug dealers probably have one of the most lucrative and stable careers at the moment. Unemployment is at an all time high and the health care system fails us everyday. All of that said, many of these situations are self made by people trying to live above their means and looking for the easy way to make money.
However, regardless of all our societal ills, no one has a blank check to kill other human beings to get what you want. This is especially so for the police officers who serve and protect us. The answer is for our country to adopt a much tougher stance on crime, especially drugs. One way to accomplish this change is to think about who we elect to office. You may think that your vote does not matter at the polls but it truly does. We cannot change what happened and no one in their right mind would consider that it will never happen again so we have to consider a forward change.
Our thoughts and prayers must be with the families of the fallen right now and we must not let them think for a moment that as a society we do not care. Lets all remember them as they struggle to make peace with what has happened and the extremely devastating effects that this person exacted on them with a moment of bad judgement.
God bless all of those who watch over us and keep us safe.
