    My condolences to all involved. It has been a terrible 18 or so months in Delaware County. If my memory serves me correctly, I think it has been two or three LODDs and several serious injuries.

    Thoughts and Prayers with the family and dept.


    Rest Easy.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Heard something today that he had a cardiac problem and was fitted with a pacemaker.

    If that's true, why would the chief let him be inside? Also, why would he be going in for a pet?

    I realize it's tough to lose a brother but why do we do things like this?
