    Protect Those Who Protect Us


    On Jan. 30, 2014, Utah County Sheriff, Sargent Cory Wride, was shot and killed while on duty in Eagle Mountain, Utah. Shortly after Cory was shot, another Utah County deputy, Greg Sherwood, was shot in Santaquin, Utah. After being shot in the head, he is on the road to recovery but will be out of work for a while and will also have many medical bills. Both of these men are heroes, and so are their families. The Wride family is now supporting officers by starting a petition to protect them by adding bullet proofing to officer's windows. This will help from tragedies, like this family experienced, from reoccurring. 100,000 signatures are needed by March 7, 2014 in order for them to continue in their efforts to protect other officers.
    This is a link with Nannette Wride, and Nathan Mohler (Sargent Cory's wife and son) explaining more about the petition.

    Increasing the awareness of this petition and these families in, anyway, would be inexpressibly appreciated.
