Yesterday was a wet day here on the east coast of Iowa as the
rain came down so hard it almost floated us downriver. Shortly
after my first cup of coffee came news of the ambush, and death
of two Des Moines area police officers.
When updates from the media claimed the shooter was in police
custody after he found a DNR employee on a gravel road and
calmly told them to call 911 I felt the man must have mental
issues. At the time some said the police should have shot
him dead while others thought we need to bring back the
Once things calm down and disbelief turns into realization, I
think this will be another case of someone who is crazier than
an outhouse rat had access to firearms. And that will be a
rally cry for the anti-gun groups to call for more gun control.
But no matter how it turns out two officers are dead and
their families, friends, and our entire state, are mourning
their loss. Prayer chains have been started and flags all
across Iowa are at half staff. I’d like to think the rain
yesterday was all the Angels from Iowa crying.
Enjoy your Thursday and God bless America.
