Daily Life of a Marine Mom

A Piece of My Heart is home from Iraq

PLEASE PLEASE continue to support your local police department! They are the unsung heroes of American more often than not and face danger on a daily basis.

I continue to search for information about the preceeding post concerning the shooting by a San Bernardino CA deputy of Airman Elio Carrion this week. While I haven't been able to find any updated information concerning Elio's condition, I have to assume that he is continuing to improve in the hospital. His recovery remains prominent in mine and many other people's prayers.

I did however find some more information concerning the deputy, Ivory John Webb. In all fairness to this deputy he was doing a job that most of us could not and would not want to do. I also continue to pray for him and his family. He needs prayers too although I am having a hard time being Christian about it because I can't get the image of him shooting young Elio out of my head. But .. I am trying. Therefore I am posting a link to a story about Deputy Ivory John Webb. His friends were as shocked by seeing the video as we all are. Click here for that story. You can also access footage of the video at this link as well as footage of the driver of the car that Elio was in. Both videos are very enlightening.

Truly, how do I feel about this? I think that the deputy made a terrible mistake and that he definitely needs to go to anger management classes and face the reprecussions of his actions this week. It was clear that he was very angry during the exchange and I, for one, do not want an angry person (police or not) pointing a gun at me. I think he forgot his tenet .. which was to 'Serve and Protect'. But that is just my opinion. You are going to have to make your own on this one.

Please remember to be nice to your local police and Semper Fidelis.
God Bless us all.
