That's horrible, Lali. I hope he is okay. :hug:

Me too. :(

I was just at his house in May to celebrate the First Communion of two of his children.

Lali, I am so sorry. He and his family are in my prayers. I hope he will recover well.

It's such a bitter thing to live in a world so full of hate. :(

That's terrible, Lali! I hope he recovers completely.

He is home for now because they couldn't do the surgery due to swelling. He faces several reconstructive surgeries and a long road of healing.

They did later get into a shootout with the suspect after he opened fire on other officers, and the suspect is dead.

Honestly, I don't have the extra energy to be sad about that. I don't know his story, and I don't care right now either. I do know he was wanted for a homicide and several other crimes. I do know he drove up next to T and shot him for no effing reason. T thought he was just pulling up to ask for directions. I do know he's messed up T's life in a horrific way, possibly disfiguring him for life, and T is lucky to be alive. I know their (T and my BFF, J) dad had to hear all of this go down in real time and be helpless to do anything about it, just listen to his son saying, "Help me, help me" over and over.

So please forgive me if I'm not sufficiently sad over this criminal being killed. I'm relieved, in fact.

I certainly don't think that is anything to apologize for. Whatever this person's story is, he is guilty of doing terrible things.

Oh, Lali. I am so, so sorry. :hug:

What can men do, against such reckless hate?

Lali: I hope your best friend's brother can make a full physical recovery and that his psychological scars will not be too great.

A quick google search seems to reveal some positive news for T.: http://fox2now.com/2016/11/23/officer-s ... s-n-hoses/

Lali, if you think this link is inappropriate in any way, please let me (or the administrators know)

No, that's fine, Beutlin. Thank you for posting it. I was coming here to do so. :)

He is doing remarkably well. There is much to repair internally, and they are concerned about his eye (that the muscle or something might be injured). But, otherwise, yeah, he's doing really well. He will definitely need psychological help, too, though.

I hope he continues to do remarkably well, mentally and physically.

Not so good news for my coworker. Possibly really bad news, I'll hear more tomorrow.

As for T, the reality of it all is sort of setting in, and it's rough. He still needs thoughts and prayers.
