KOAT TV had an interview last night with Sergeant Robert Shepard of Lincoln County Sheriff's Office. Sergeant Shepard was shot by a fugitive on March 18, 2008. It was very emotional for me to watch and Sergeant Shepard showed what a great man he is when he makes a point of wishing condolences to the family of Kurt Sohrbeck the man who shot him. Kurt Sohrbeck was killed yesterday 3-26-08 when he was found in Otero County. I am glad to see Sergeant Shepard is doing better and my family's prayers continue to be with him and his family. I also thank god that the Otero County Deputy who confronted Sohrbeck survived the encounter and made it home to his family.
There is a saying in law enforcement that sounds harsh but is implanted in the back of every cops mind. "It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by eight."
