A very humbling reminder of all that the policing profession entails.
Oh these are so sad. Yet important to know. It is good Lee is mindful of this.
Last week Lee had a blog including a mobile vision monitor on the visor. However, since Mr. Lewis states this psycopath was caught up with later, there is no need to follow up. Except maybe to better understand how and what happened.
Sorry to hear of your loss Mr. Lewis.
