Sadness


Last night I took my first real sad call, although I know eventually something worse will top that call from last night. A girl called in screaming that her friend had jumped off the pier into the ocean and couldnt get back to shore. Towards the end of the call it sounded like they were losing sight of him. We dispatched divers, the fire department, our helicopter, the coast guards, another police agency, and I think they found his body 3 hours after the initial call... Pretty sad. And he was only 25. 

Another really sad thing that is weighing on my heart is the trial that started this week for my cousin Kyle who was murdered 2 years ago.
I just feel so bad for my aunt and his girlfriend from the time as they testify and re-live all this all over again. I wish I could be there for my aunt but with the job its not possible. I really hope justice is served in this although it will not bring my cousin back. 

I am now going to enjoy my three day weekend ahead....
Today I am having lunch with some friends, finally make my way to the Coach store, hit up the big Forever 21, get my car washed, and hang with my Frappy!

So wait he jumped off for what a joke? Or was trying to commit suicide? The kid couldn't swim? That is really sad regardless...

Wow, that first story is scary and sad... I wonder if he had suicide in mind when he jumped... =[ Poor girl who was there, though, that had to be horrible!

As for your cousin, I am so, so, so sorry. What a horrific story. I surely hope and pray that both men end up where they belong for the rest of their lives. His family must be heartbroken, still... Just so scary that someone would do that over marijuana, such a violent way to end a life... So sorry. I'll be praying that the trial goes the way it should, I hope you let us all know how it ends...
