    Otis' sister, texas_top_model, is a member here. I wonder where she disappeared to?

    Wow.
    Crappy situation.
    Nobody wins.
    My sympathy to the family.
    I guess there was some reason they were there in the first place though...

    There's always two sides to a story...I wasn't there, so I won't comment other than to say my condolences to Otis and his family.

    My sympathies to the family of Lernard Grigsby, including Otis Grigsby and his sister. God bless them.

    This is so sad. We're talking about a correctional officer here. We're not talking about somebody who might skip town. It just seems like the police could have handled this differently so that this wouldn't have happened. Now, though, a life is lost and that is permanent.

    I was struck by Otis Grigsby's video. I think his wanting to as much of this as possible into some kind of a positive by reducing the chance that this could happen again is a good response, and an important one.

    I think there are two main avenues. One, changes to police procedures. This starts at the unit level. The Illinois State Police seem to have questionable procedures, training, equipment, or tactics with regard to responding to domestic disturbances.
    Second, reducing the number of domestic disturbances that occur. This is a community responsibility that we all have. There are so many aspects to this.

    I hope the family of the deceased can find comfort in this time of grieving.
