This happened just a few blocks down from my house. My daughter goes to the Urbandale middle school which is right down the street from the highschool where one of the shootings was. It's heartbreaking. So glad they caught the guy responsible. He was a racist nutcase apparently.


 

 

We live close to each other.  I live a few blocks from where the Des Moines officer was shot.  It absolutely breaks my heart.

 

Yes, he was a racist and alt right.

Re: 2 police officers murdered overnight

One officer's funeral is today.  The other officer's funeral is tomorrow.   Thousands of police officers and firefighters from all over are in town.  My heart breaks for their families, for all officers.

 

My heart also goes out to the children of the killer.  He has 2 young daughters who are really struggling with what their dad did.

1. Why a person like this was in possession of a gun

2. Why white men who do these things are always labeled as mentally ill while others of color are vicious, hateful thugs.
