A week ago, Fresno experienced a murder/suicide tragedy. I was one of those who was close to the action. So much happened, so fast. But I wish to comment on those who faced the risk without pause.
The Fresno police were on scene within minutes in full force. Deputy Chief Pat Farmer and Lt. Mark Salazar were in command. The police actions were courageous yet caring. Recent problems at the department were not in evidence. There was only methodical, efficient police work. I would not trade this organization for any other. I, for one, will never forget.
