No greater man is he,than for a man to lay down his life for another. Deputy Dickerson my brother, you did just that trying to protect the Citizens your were sworn to protect. May God bless your family and the lowlife who put himself as God,May the wheel s of justice punish him to the fullest extent of the Law.
