No police officer expects to lose their life in the line of duty. But every day, they put on their badge after they put on a bullet proof vest. Yesterday the worst happened, two officers trying to keep peace in a small community were the victims of a senseless crime, committed by a coward. One literally sacrificed his life so the victim of a sexual assault would not be murdered by a psychopathic pedophile.
I cannot express our sorrow to the families of the officers. All We can do is band this community together to show just how much the police really are appreciated. Our hearts and prayers go out to the officer lost, and the families affected by this needless violence, and I hope that in some small way, you can take strength from the people of Hood County and realize that we are here for you.
If you would like to help, you can donate to our online charity that has been set up to help their families. http://www.gofundme.com/3fq288
you can also make a direct donation to the First National Bank of Hico, or mail in a donation.
The thin blue line remains. And where it is broken, others will bind to make it stronger.
