The case of the former LAPD officer turned Evil Rambo took another violent and deadly turn today when two San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were shot. Tragically, one of those deputies died. Law enforcement at the scene bravely took the fight to the killer and he lost. He’s dead. It took too long and too many died but it’s over.
After going through all of this -- either directly or indirectly, but just as importantly, as a fellow brother/sister in blue -- how do you feel today?
It ended as it needed to, bad guy dead.
Unfortunately, there are a variety of media types blaming us, rather than the villain. Unbelieveable. Two cops dead, two wounded, two citizens dead and we're to blame.
Why am I not surprised.
I feel a sense of relief that no one else has to die, and that the threat has been neutralized. My primary beef is the media insisting on calling him a rougue cop. He's not been a cop since 2009; he needs to be indentified for what he was: a selfish, introverted, racist murdering terrrorist hellbent on destroying anyone and everything in his path, including himself. One look at his "manifesto" says it all. What pains me most is this murderer was a veteran, and a police officer, like many of us are. Yet, because of his actions, he sullies our professions. I'm glad this murderer did not make it to trial, a movie and a book deal, and get to bask in sensational media coverage, e.g. O.J. Simpson style. God Bless the LEO's that took him on.
