 I just read the article on the officer's passing a few minutes ago.  Such a terrible tragedy, especially he and his partner being ambushed.  My thoughts and prayers going out to his family and department.  I hope the monster that killed him will receive the death penalty.

God rest brave Officer Tom Decker.  My very deepest condolences to Officer Decker's family and friends.  God comfort and keep them well.


Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.
