    I don't like you calling non-police "civilians." We're all civilians - the police are not military.

    Why don't police vehicle have the key fob that allows one to do a push button start for the vehicle. If the police get far enough away from the vehicle, it won't start.

    A reminder on Memorial Day that the battle for freedom is constant and there is a war going on in our own home towns. Brave officers find themselves alone on that thin line and fight for us and the victims of violent crimes. One big difference is that these criminals are not sent by aggressive governments, they are selfishly self deployed.

    A man went through the lives of others like a wrecking ball. Worst of all he forced officers to meet his intentions with deadly force. He is dead and goes on to judgement free from the cares of this world. His calateral damages are left behind to deal with the monsters he created.

    Thank God for preserving our civilian heroes in yesterday’s battle of West Jordan. And may he have mercy on the soul of a robber who for what ever reasons suffered the wrath of his own decisions in a death of his own construct.

    Condolences to the thief's family and friends. It is terrible for an officer to have to do this on any day let alone Memorial Day. Also, terrible for the innocent people that were injured today.

    Crime does not pay people. How do we get that message across to so many people in our society? Whatever their reasons for committing crimes they need to think about the heartache they are also creating for their own families. This isn't your dream for your child, grandchild, or sibling.
