I've been trying all week to find a way to adequately express the love and support we want to offer the families of the four brave and committed police we lost this Sunday past. Nothing seems enough. A lunatic savagely altered the course of so many lives. The arraignments of those who foolishly assisted him have been taking place across the street from my office.
I have great admiration for our local and regional police men and women, sheriffs, sheriff's deputies and emergency responders. They have all stayed to task, employing the highest levels of professionalism and control during tense times. Please keep them all in your thoughts; the four now lost, their families, friends, coworkers and the vast sea of people impacted by this weeks events.
