A cop's worst enemy...himself

"A Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy - whose flamboyant brother killed his girlfriend before leaping to his death a year ago - faced potential manslaughter charges himself and Monday night torched his car and apartment before shooting himself in the head."

Just two weeks ago The New York Times reported that a cop is two or three times more likely to die from suicide than in the line of duty.
It's estimated "that 400 to 450 officers kill themselves each year, compared with 150 to 200 who die in the line of duty."

Something to think about and something all those cop shows on TV hardly ever touch.

Tragic and sobering.
