As of this writing, Christopher Dorner — the man who set out to murder as many policemen as he could entrap — has eluded capture. Hopefully, my neighborhood will be a little quieter today. As I mentioned in yesterday’s open thread, the ambush of two Riverside police officers occurred just around the corner and a few blocks away from my house. The police kept the street cordoned off all day and every news channel had set up shop in the parking lots of businesses surrounding the location of the shooting. A Catholic church nearby allowed Fox News to set up their equipment in front of the church.
My town is sad. They have not released the names of the officers who were shot — one of whom died — out of concern for the family member’s safety. The killer has vowed to harm the families of as many policemen as he could. Thank God it looks like the second officer will survive the ambush. A prayer vigil was held at city hall last night.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him and he with me. Revelation 3:20
