  1. One of the more recent stories comes from yesterday...a young police officer was killed. He had an infant daughter and a young son...two children who will grow up not knowing their father and a community loses a good police office, father, and good man. It breaks my heart.

  2. Another article is a mother who was pulled over for speeding (30 mph over the limit) and the officer found her to be driving under the influence with her 9 month old child in the car!
