Detective Kristen Hearne - Taken Too Soon

Polk County, GA Detective Kristen Hearne was gunned down today after responding to a fellow officer's call for back-up when he was investigating a suspicious vehicle that turned out as having been reported stolen in TN. The suspects, a man and a woman, reportedly came out of the woods near the vehicle. At least one (reportedly the male) opened fire on both officers as the officers engaged them in conversation, mortally wounding Det. Hearne and injuring Officer David Goodrich who was shot in his body armor.

Det. Hearne is survived by her husband, her 3 year old son and her parents. She was only 29 years old with a mere 5 years on the job.

The suspected shooter reportedly had a previous arrest for methamphetamine and weapons charges in 2015 but was released last year! He has been arrested and was reportedly naked at the time of arrest. A female suspect was also arrested. More at the source.

My condolences to the family and loved ones of Det. Hearne. My wish for a speedy recovery for Officer Goodrich, both physically and spiritually.

All the best,
Glenn B

It's Friday Night...

...and my wife and daughter just went out to eat and have a few drinks. My son-in-law just took his son to the mall, my mother-in-law went to bed (go figure - before 6PM - but thank God for that), my son is living in Arkansas. What is a fella to do?

I may just have to go for a walk for health reasons. Along the way, I may wander into a bar; that is if I just so happen to come across one in my travels. When I leave it (if I just happen to find one along my way), I will continue my walk and who knows - I may find and walk into another bar. If I find enough of them and walk into them, I may have to crawl out of, and to home, from the last one.

Is that what they call a Pub Crawl?

Later for U,
Glenn B
