    Disgustingly sick...........

    Rest in peace, Sir.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                              It's a sad world when a cop can't even sit at a red light without being gunned down. Everyone expects this sort of thing to happen on a traffic stop, a domestic or maybe serving a warrant. This reminds me of the Lakewood 4, just minding their own business, trying to survive the shift. RIP Sgt Vann... and I hope the perp gets an express ticket to Huntsville!!!
