Our hearts and respects go out to the family of fallen Phoenix Police Officer Travis Murphy.
I was woken up by my mother yesterday morning asking if my best friend and fellow shooter, RamRod, was working last night and if he was okay. Knowing his schedule and his precinct I told her he wasn't working and that the shooting didn't happen near his area.
However, it is always nerve racking waiting to hear from him after a shooting. Police do not truely have borders so they can be operating any where in the city and sometimes the state.
These men and women go out into a world that is just civilized enough for us to think its safe. But the police know the truth and there is no defense against an ambush like the one sprung on Travis Murphy.
