    Sorry bout that,


    1. My condolences to John Rolls Family, who have lost a *Real Hero* at the Mrs. Giffords meeting this week.
    2. Its a sad day for Judges all over this Nation, Judge John Rolls sort of fell through the cracks on this public debate, as many others did, but he didn't have to be there, just stopped by to ask a few questions.
    3. Lower the flags if possible, but also raise the flag for Judeg John Rolls, honor.


    Regards,
    SirJamesofTexas

    Realistically, I can't see where we can call him a "Hero," but he sounded like a very good person, one that will be sorely missed on the bench and as a person. My sympathies go out to his family and friends.

    I save the "Hero" distinction for those who are fighting overseas.

    How odd, considering how many Arizonians were very angry with him a few weeks ago.


    And condolences to his family...may they find peace after this senseless act of violence.

    I do think that the Media did a poor job of putting a face to the Victims aside from the 9yr old and the Congresswoman.

    R.I.P.

    Not a hero, but a good man. My sympathies and prayers to his family.

    To me, a hero is one who has a major positive impact on my life or the lives of my loved ones.

    His untimely death and the way it happened did exactrly that.

    So to me, I see him as a hero.

    My condolences to his family and my sincere regret over what happenned. I'm a little perplexed over how getting shot by a randon lunatic makes someone a hero though. Is every gunshot victim a hero? or, Just the ones who's deaths can be used to make political statements?

    Being downrange when a nut goes to busting caps makes him a victim not a hero. Condolences to the family.

    If getting randomly shot is the new definition of "hero".

    Then the Hood in any major city in America is packed full of "hero's" :doubt:
