    I was praying that this was going to be a better year for law enforcement. Even though they had said officers deaths were down last year we all know the assaults on LEO's had a sharp spike. I hope this trend doesn't continue this year.

    RIP brother. A speedy recovery to the other officer involved. You both did a great job.
