Officer Down

I know this is not RV related but it's been hitting me pretty hard. We've lost another police officer in this country last night. Euless PD officer David Hofer in Euless Texas, was killed by an gunman last night while responding to a suspicious person call. I know there a lot of haters out there but for those of you who have a heart, please stop and think about these men and women out there. This is close to home as I'm a police officer in a city just 5 minutes away from him and we all know each other in some way or another. This is so getting old...Prayers to their department and families.

Thanks for letting me vent ya'll.

Prayers for your friend and his family. My nephew is what I call one of Kansas' finest. The police are kind of like the military they all try to keep us safe

This Officer was 5 years with the NYPD before he came to Texas and he was also newly engaged. Sad all around.

We had two MD deputies killed just South of me 2 weeks ago I guess, a VA Deputy was killed on her first shift.. Never made it through 8 hours before she was killed and her two partners shot. We had a pursuit yesterday where two officers were almost run down, one of their cars rammed with another officer in it... Then a 100mph chase for 30 miles.

Where are the riots... Where are the crowds screaming for justice... I am just told "well that's your job." Its sad...

Praying for the families and department.

Dwayne, after all this crap started I made a commitment to pray for our nation's law enforcement every time I see one in passing, and whenever else I think of it.

When I see officers in a restaurant or something, I try to take a minute to tell them I'm praying for them.

Now I'm praying for you, as well, my friend.

I have the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) app installed on my IPhone. As a retired Officer it always hit home.

The latest news report is stating the family of this scum who shot the officer is blaming the police for letting him out of jail too soon. Said it's their fault he shot the officer because he was still high on meth and they should have kept him. We certainly can't win. The thought process of some of these people blows my mind.


They said they know what he did was bad but he didn't deserve to die....
