They Were the Worst Days of My Life

By Chief David Oliver...
They Were the Worst Days of My Life
The family and I were at home. The weather forecast was dismal at best. That cold Friday night in January 2005 was ending with a bad winter storm bearing down. We had rented Spiderman 2 and just sat down to start the movie. And then, it started…

I had been the chief for less than one year. These were the days of pagers. We had cell phones; however, our department used the pager system. My pager sounded, indicating I needed to contact dispatch, with an added "911," meaning there was certainly an urgency to call in. I called and was immediately drawn back to the real world.

Our dispatcher advised that one of my officers was out on what appeared to be a double homicide. The other shift officer responded to a call, one road over, involving the same gunman. He was holding two people hostage, threatening to shoot them, but ended up letting them go. He then traipsed off into the woods.
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
