Such a senseless tragedy that in a probable 45 mph zone and doing nothing wrong, these two heroes died after someone not obeying the law crashed into them. Naturally the offender survived. I'm just weary from the heartache that every death brings. My career was cut short at 23 years from an on the job injury and my first agency suffered the loss of two officers the years I served there. Too much blood is being shed of officers blood and some K9 officers. Praying for all that gave all, and for all active officers. Be safe.....
