Being any kind of Law Dawg is a tough way to earn a living. I could not have done it. God bless anyone who tries to do the job. And it's like anything else, you get some mostly good ones and some bad ones slip through.
I have always understood that a Hero is a person, while everyone else around them is soiling themselves, keeps a calm mind and does what needs to be done to keep the bad guys at bay.
Based on my simplified logic, this Deputy surely fits the bill. There are folks alive tonight in Macon County that would not be if he hadn't wrecked the nutcase.
Well done Deputy Shipley, very well done.
