Thank for your compassion

Thank for your compassion and sincereness. That is all we wanted was HELP. The unfortunate thing about this,{aside from Tommy's death is that I will now think twice for calling for help for myself or anyone. Where did it all go wrong?!? There was absolutely no negotiating done by the LEO, only a family member who was made to leave, thinking the LEO had someone to talk to him to help him. I know they have a job to do and the right to protect themselves. We just can't understand why they didn't back off a little, since they were obviously adgetating him, until he tired out or they had means to subdue or apprehend him by means of the armored vehicle that was on the way. He was not shooting at anyone, why not wait it out as long as he was on his own property and not shooting at anyone. This was a cry for help!!!! Who do you turn to now to get that. This has caused people to doubt the men and women who are there to protect and serve in these situations. I appreciate the job that they do until you experience something like this. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family and community that this has affected. I also forgive those who took this drastic action, because as a Christian that is what I am supposed to do. I just hope no one EVER has to go through anything like this. However, if something like this happens again, I hope many lessons have been learned. We are all only human, but there are people out there who love and care for us, he was not a mad animal on the loose, only a human being needing help. Please pray for us all and understand that we are all hurting.
