My prayers go out to Trooper Johnsons family. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for the well being of others. What a true hero he is. I worked in communications for almost three years at a Sheriffs Department. And everytime I sent one of my officers out to a call such as this I was on pins and needles. Just praying that it would all come out fine. And by Gods grace it always did. When you work in communications your not on the scene so you dont know whats taking place. And alot of times it was hard just sitting there waiting to hear them say that they were 10-4. I hold them with the highest respect and honor. May God carry each Fallen Officers Family through this difficult time.
