Alas, in the fallen world in which we live, she took the chief’s advice and sent them to the hospital.Would they have fired at her if they hadn’t seen her go for her gun first, though? Yep, she says.

    In the darkness of a hotel parking lot, the fugitive task force moved quickly to stop the black pickup with the murder suspect riding inside. Only their fugitive wasn't in the truck. Instead, Henry Kiner, 27, was dressed in camouflage and perched on the hotel's second floor, where he used a shotgun to blast away at the unsuspecting task force members below, officials said. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel called it an "ambush" that backfired when officers and deputies fired back toward the hotel, killing Kiner just outside Room 212 of the Days Inn in Oakland Park early Wednesday.

    Two of the wisest sages of all time Mark Twain and Jesus Christ himself spoke memorably about the dangers of worrisome do-gooders run amok. Indeed, it is the curse of do-gooders the world over to find fault in everyone except themselves. And they usually do great harm when they fix things that usually are not broken all in the odious name of self-righteousness. Nothing so needs reforming as other peoples habits, Twain observed. And in the Sermon on the Mount, it was Jesus a famous carpenter, among other things who warned that do-gooders would be...
