As the wife of a former Police Sergeant, my heart & prayers go out to the family of Officer Kenyon Youngstrom. It is a dangerous job and I am humbled by those that choose to put their life on the line for complete strangers. God Bless!

This is a tragedy, for the family and the community. The police put their lives on the line every day, and are criticized constantly. I hope the critics that repeatedly voice their opinions on these on line forums, feel pangs of remorse, and change their ideas about our police officers.

Trevor Tooze,

May I remind you that this is not the time for criticism. It is the time to mourn the loss of two of God's children and comfort those who loved them.
