It's hard for me to get outraged over the health "care" fiasco going on in DC when there are more assholes ambushing and trying to kill our officers here in Washington State. I'm sure there will be more copy cat events.
Hubby has been off all month and I thank God for that.
My aunt called me last night at 10:30 to tell us this had happened near her home. Her best friend's husband is a Deputy. Thankfully he was not working, but of course he knew those involved in this ambush. Thankfully the jerk off who ambushed these officers is now dead. I hop he is burning in hell.
I really don't get it. Our officers are here to protect and serve. No, they aren't always perfect - hubby has had complaints that he's rude and he's worked on that and gotten better. But I don't care how rude he is if it brings him home safe to us.
Police officers are PEOPLE. They have fears and dreams just like everyone else. How have people fallen so low as to forget this and want to purposely take their lives.
My heart breaks.
