    What the heck is going on. Since when do people have the gall to mow down public officials in this country ? I hope this ' trend' stops ASAP.
    RIP :(

    Every nut in America has a grievance and a gun.

    ITA!

    Officials that are dealing with the "war on drugs" and making major arrests seem to be "in the line of fire".

    Prayers to the Sheriff's family and friends.

    I wonder if the murders are all connected. It's almost unheard of to murder a top law enforcement official in broad daylight- in the parking lot of their local courthouse.

    Yet both this latest murder of this sheriff & the murder of the assistant DA in Texas had these same, extremely rare similarities. Granted they happened about 1,000 miles away, but it still seems too strangely similar to be a coincidence.
