Dorner - Finally coming to an end here in So Cal

Living here in So Cal is like a roller coaster at times.

Today ex-LAPD Officer and murderer, was finally caught in a shootout in Big Bear, but not before shooting two more law enforcement officers. One has died and the other is in critical condition.

I first heard the news of his re-sighting while going between buildings for a meeting. I couldn't keep my mind on business the remainder of the day, catching tid-bits of what was going on from fellow workers and colleagues.

Someone mentioned the shootout and another two officers down. then the news of the death of one of them. Two law enforcement officers killed and two more seriously wounded in a span of six days. A very bad week here in the South Land. And all by an ex-law enforcement officer. Very bizarre.

I followed the news all the home from work. A lengthy drive on the crowded freeway during traffic hour. It gave me some time to think about my recent complaints about how hard my commute is and how long the hours I put in everyday.

Shameful, now that I say a rosary for the fallen. I have a lot to be thankful  for.

It has been reported that the officer who died and a new born baby in his family. Very tragic.
It's even been reported that he was hold up in a cabin only a few yards away from the Sheriff Command Center.

I gave the wife a big kill an hug, told her how much I missed her today....so much to be thankful for.

Prayers for the lose of families involved. I'll dedicate my Divine Office, Night Prayer to those affected by this tragedy.
