Zero Punctuation - Demon Thing

12-100.

------------------------------------------------------------------
In the United States of America, a police officer is killed
approximately every 57 hours. This is wrong. In a country
where we demand freedom and liberty, we take the lives of
those who seek to keep our country free of crime so that we
CAN live the life we desire. I honor those men and women
who have laid, so valiantly, their lives on the line so that
I may walk the streets daily.

Rest in peace, Deputy Richard Herzog. The King County Sheriff's Department lost a good man.

THIS is the reason I still support the death penalty.

As many of you know, my father is a sheriff's deputy in Oregon. Every day my father leaves for work, my mother and I have to come to grips with the possibility that WE MAY NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN. Herzog left behind a wife of 20 years and two daughters... My heart breaks for them. Herzog was the same age as my father...

20 years in the US Army, in the Special Forces. Seven years with King County. One moment... and it's gone. Crackhead took it all away.

My father's been with the Benton County Sheriff's Office for longer than I've been breathing. I don't know what I would do if something like this happened...
