Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Part of the problem... that no one knows who Jacob Ryker is.

But there's a big Wikipedia web entry on who Kip Kinkel is. (Which Ryker isn't even mentioned in!)

Let's fix that.

I agree, it's reprehensible thast the Wikipedia thing on Kinkle doesn't mention Jake and his fellow Boy Scouts who stopped the shooting.

In one of the sources footnoted at the bottom of the Wiki article, though, there is reference to a school hero being honored. I am gratified, and rather surprised, when I followed the source and found it was CBS News. That network has in years past, made a point of opposing 2nd Amemdment rights. The article may be read at - -

What a lovely day when a guy at the tender age of 17 can truly count himself a man. Good guy from an obviously good home. Bless 'im.

Well, it's a wiki article. Edit it, point the citation to the article you linked first. It is possible, however, that the young man in question wants no more attention and is editing his own name out of the article....

I attended one of the rival schools in Eugene. Thurston was always the school with the "bad" reputation. It was where the kids from the wrong side of the tracks went to school. In the mid-80's we were almost afraid to go there for games. It is nice to know that there are kids there that make the right choices and that the school may be on the right track after all.

I agree, so I fixed it.

The coolest feeling in the world must be pinning a medal for heroism on your own son.
I'd lose the weight to be able to fit back into my dress blues just to be able to do that.
Jacob would be 27, I wonder what he's doing now.
