    I searched a couple times in the last few hours to see if this had been posted yet. Either my search isn't turning it up, or it hasn't.

    South Floridians likely have heard, but others may have not, that today a tragedy took place, sadly a couple miles from where I post this.

    here is the story:

    I have multiple family members on staff at the hospital where Mr. Hernandez is currently and from what I've heard, it doesn't look good.

    He and his family are in my prayers and I hope that fellow THR members will say a prayer for him.

    A lot of THR members get down on LE officers for some reason. I simply ask that we all remember that these men and women put their lives on the line daily in the ultimate interest of making our communities a better place.

    I also would like to urge any officers that are THR members to read an article in the July 2007 issue of Guns & Weapons For Law Enforcement by Matt Berger entitled: Traffic Stop Do's and Don'ts. It ironically covered this very topic and for all I know it may save a life, so I wanted to mention it. I would scan it, but I'm afraid I'd be violating copyright law. (btw - I don't work for the magazine or its publisher - just for the record).

    Anyways, again I ask that we all say a prayer for Mr. Hernandez and hope for the best. Despite what we all know about ballistics and what I've heard from hospital staff, we can all hope.

    Prayers to the family.

    And I second Matt Berger as an excellent choice in real-world law enforcement writing. He sticks to the basics, and explains them fully.

    All prayers for Detective Fernandez and his family.

    Seems to me that a lot of the shootings of LEOs I've read of in the news lately have occurred during traffic stops. Not the shootouts or apprehensions of dangerous felons, but just walking up to the car.

    I have seen patients with similar injuries survive. The quality of life appeared to be pretty darn good to me. I am quite hopeful, actually. I am on staff at MRH. I can't disclose any info, but I will say... On Tuesday, I didn't believe that he would survive. Wednesday, I was alot more hopeful. Today, I totally believe that he will survive. And I think he'll do well. I will pray.

    I went to high School with Maury, but never really socialized with him. Even though I didn’t know him, he did make an impression on me. He was always positive, and honestly a man of integrity (a word he often used).

    Our High School has a “tradition” of announcing the students GPA in our Auditorium. Grades 7 – 12 would all gather in here. They would basically call on A and B average students to stand for recognition. Every grade but the senior boys followed suit. When the B average boys were called, none of them stood up (including me), but when Maury was called, he stood with a big old grin across his face. I honestly can’t remember if anyone followed his Example, but I gained a lot of respect for him that day.

    I haven’t prayed in a long time, but for Maury I can spare the time.
