eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord

Two police officers were murdered in New York yesterday. I'm sad, ashamed and disgusted.

As far as I know, I'd first pray an RIP for Brinsley's girl friend, if it is true he killed her before getting where he killed to cops.

Since he killed himself, it is not quite easy to know what exactly cops had done to him previous to his taking this vow, which he kept.

I do know, I am for one, a bit tired of policemen taking me for a spiritual twin of Brinsley just because I shot AT a cop in what I consider legitimate self defense in 1998, and I thank St Agatha for the occasion (both shooting and non-killing) every 5th of february.

If I had not tried so drastically to defend myself, shrinks would probably have made me a wreck by continuing their harrassment. And if I had killed him (which I did not try to do, despite allegations to the contrary - I tried to hurt him so he would let go of the pistol so I could take him hostage until out of the hospital), if I had killed him, I'd be doing time. Still, today.

But as how some people, among them Catholics, react to me, it adds up to me doing time even after five times the months given in the sentence.

Oh, sorry, misread:

Earlier on Saturday, law enforcement officials said, Mr. Brinsley shot his former girlfriend in the stomach near Baltimore. She survived.

Thank God.
