As is so often the case, Tuesday's cop killer was a hugely misguided person, full of hatred, arrogance, a long criminal record, and demons in his head.
So when they came looking for the habitual offender for molesting a young girl, he knew he was at the end of his rope.
The truly sad thing is that one of Pearl's most respected officers would lose his life so that a longtime lawbreaker could be brought to justice.
Our thoughts go out to all law officers and their families who have to constantly deal with the refuse of society time and again and who serve in harm's way every day.
Detective Mike Walter epitomized everything good about protecting and serving.
Thankfully, his killer is no long around to harm anyone else.
That's my Point of View.
