Violence hits home for me.

So this piece of shit came into my wife's hospital waving a gun and now is free on bond. My wife was the one who said "gun, gun, gun" and actually met eyes with him from inside the hospital. They're saying that her yelling scared him off and probably saved a lot of lives. Because of this my wife has lost 2 nights of sleep over it, and thought the Fedex lady at our front door had a gun and was coming to finish her off since she was a witness. She has to look over her shoulder every time she enters or leaves the hospital now. Amazing what people are let out for. I'd love to get 15 minutes alone with him with my trusty friend, Louisville Slugger.

Here's the new report on it

People handle stress like that in so many different ways. Make sure you help her out (obviously) and if she needs to see someone, support her all the way. When we got back from OIF 1-2, I knew a few Marines that were really messed up in the head, but once they knew that help doesnt mean their "weak" or "making things up" they start to get better.

too bad the piece of shit is out now,

damn E! you didn't tell me about that when i talked to you the other day. just tell your wife to erase more of your go-pro cards from our ride!!!! that should help ease her stress alittle

but seriously, our thoughts are with you and her man!!! truely something to be concerned about.

when i was born(1976), a dude called my mom's room at the hospital saying he was gonna kill her and take me. she was able to get officer's to sit outside of her room and the nursery for the rest of our stay at the hospital.

maybe your wife could ask a security guard to walk her in and out for awhile until she feels comfortable again

oh and i'll call you tommorrow when i get off work about this weekend.

Sorry to hear about the incident. I know what it feels like, as a police officer we get death threats daily down hear and there is alot of over the shoulder looking too. You never know who has what on their mind.

BUT what I can say is that most (not all) people are mostly talk and that once caught usually dont come after people. The power of that thought that your wife has must be broken and you need to help her and support her as she needs it. We as police officer become comfortable with the daily thoughts of an incident happening but your wife will need your support.

Please let her know that she acted: 1. Bravely 2. Quickly 3. Attentively and her actions saved lives and those traits will protect her every day. So she should not worry, but just remain attentive as she was that day.

If yall need anything let us know. Best wishes

i'm no head shrinker, but i will say that this sounds alot like post traumatic stress disorder. i would go ahead and get her seen as soon as you can, and as she works in a hospital, it may be easier to talk to someone "off the books" in mental health. also, she should be very proud of her situational awareness. her reaction saved lives that day. period. best of luck, my prayers are with you and yours.

Thanks for the advice and support guys. Unfortunately my wife is getting her masters in counseling. And the office she works in is ALL counselors. So she thinks she knows everything about mental stuff and all but refuses to go see someone. Fortunately there were other people in her office at the time too, so they are all kind of supporting each other. Plus she's doing a lot better. Now she only thinks the dog is after her.

I know a guy who is a SGT on a local police force here. I was talking to him about it and told him I was surprised how they would let him go on bond with the nature of the crime. He told me I would be surprised the things people walk out on.
