[Vision2020] tragedy

My heart-felt condolences to the family and friends of Moscow Police Officer
Lee Newbill as well as my sincerest best wishes and hopes to LCSO Deputy
Brannon Jordan and his family and friends.


Although this is truly a sad day for the town of Moscow, the question gnaws
at the conscience of our community:


What potential devastation would we have had to endure had it not been for
the immediate response of Deputy Brannon Jordan, Officer Lee Newbill, and
their fellow peacekeepers in the Latah County Sheriff's Office and the
Moscow Police Department, as well as other agencies who provided assistance
in Moscow's hour of need?


That is a price we will hopefully never have to know.


So, while we grieve for the families and friends of these fine officers, we
must also remember (and pay tribute to) those who continue to keep our
streets safe and secure.

This is a sad day for Moscow.  Our family is a big fan of our police
department and we thank them for serving us.  It is not an easy job and can
be a very dangerous one.  If anything good can come from this horrific
event, I hope that it can unite our citizens and bring us together, that we
not be so divided and divisive, and that we take the time to realize how
great of a community that we truly do live in -in spite of it all.

You've likely heard that Moscow Police Officer Lee Newbill, shot late last
night by a sniper, has died of his injuries.  Deputy Brannon Jordan of the
LCSO is in serious condition with multiple gunshot wounds.  The presumed
shooter was found dead in the sanctuary of the Presbyterian Church, along
with another unidentified man.  The church caretaker, who lives in an
apartment inside the church building, has not been accounted for.  A third
man shot last night as he walked through the area is in serious condition at
Gritman and also is unidentified.

My condolences to the Newbill family, along with the families of Dep.
Jordan, the unidentified civilian shot last night, the man found dead in the
church, and the sniper himself.  And thank God for the bravery of our police
officers and deputies, as well as the paramedics and EMTs and the LCSO
dispatchers who witnessed much of the rampage.

What a horrible, horrible thing to have happen.
