Yet another officer down

Who is to blame?

Mayor Dick'em Daley, who has allowed gangs to gain so much here in Chicago? While being seemingly against more hiring of police officers?

Supt. Jody Weis, who is a poor excuse, but gets paid for TWO positions, one of which he does not perform?

Or Officer David Blake? He may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Why was he there, so far away from home? Perhaps he had a snitch in the car with him?

Nonetheless, last evening, Officer David Blake joined a number of other police officers who have died recently, by gunshots.

This scenario is something I and my family were forced to live with, as my own father was a Milwaukee Police Officer, and in 1953, became a Milwaukee Police Detective. Though things were not as bad then as they are now, we lived each day as a day...and my dear mother hoped and prayed her husband would come home, after the call that interrupted dinner, and left us without his presence for hour after hour.

My special condolences to any family of Officer Blake, and may he rest now, in peace.
