I am sorry for the mom. I do hope she told the dispatch that her son stated that he would kill the police if she called them.
Pray for the officers and the families. R.I.P. to the officer that passed and prayers for all of his family.

My baby šŸ’” Iā€™m so sorry Jourdan


Sending prayers up for those officers and the mom. Mental Health is a serious and dangerous thing. You never know who or how it will affect someone. It’s no easy solution to this epidemic but to pray because the devil is busy and is collecting souls. May you find peace young man.
