Today, we learned that 2 Pottawattamie County Sheriffs office deputies were assaulted and shot by a convicted murderer. The cowardly thug then was able to escape jail, which resulted in a mulit-state pursuit before he was apprehended in Omaha.
Sadly, one of the deputies has succumbed to his wounds. This pain is something we are all too familiar with and mere words cannot describe the depth's of pain that the involved deputies families, co workers, and friends are feeling.
We offer our condolences to the families and friends of today's involved deputies.
There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends.
