Folks, I am sure that by now you have heard about a San Diego police officer's good deed towards a young boy just before a suicidal maniac shot and critically wounded the officer. The officer died later that night. The killer was on a suicidal mission. When he was cornered, he was shot to death by the police after he refused to surrender.

The officer, and a true gentleman, served overseas in the military. And he only has been home a short time before all this happened. This was a totally senseless killing.

Look at the video where the officer was inside a McDonald's restaurant buying food for this young lad just moments before he was shot. The boy talked about it. I hope that the boy will become a police officer himself. I do wonder if the officer was a great role model for him.

The killing brought this whole city together. We were all saddened by this. An overflow crowd packed The Rock church where the funeral was held for officer Jeremy Henwood.

Now, for those of you who are Norman Rockwell fans, does anyone remember the painting "The Runaway", where an officer and another young lad are both sitting on stools inside a diner?
