      Verlon (GoArmy) is one of the few people i have had personal contact with on lottery post i liked him from the very first time we started to communicate. I could tell from talking to him he was an exceptional man. I am very happy everything turned out for the best and that no one was seriously injured.

      It takes and exceptional man/woman to put themselves in harms way they are true hero's for coming to the assistance of the mother and children. To face someone with a knife once is a hard pill to swallow to do it twice is pure superman stuff. I am also glad that Ralph and Clarence were there to lend assistance in this matter. 

      GoArmy, Ralph and Clarence  you are a Super Dudes.

            Couldn't have said it any better. It gave me a warm feeling to read this and to know there are still people who will step up to the plate.

                  To all here,

                  Thanks for all of the kind words that you put out there for me. The truth is that the 26th of August was without a doubt the worst thing that I have ever seen in my life. The story is very close but there are a few discrepancies with it. The guy cut his own throat in three different places and he cut it so deep that he looked like he had gills. He cut his throat while he was still in the house and then he ran outside and lunged at me with a ten inch butcher knife. When he came at me I immediately went for the OC spray and thank God that I did. When he was unsuccessful at stabbing me he raised the knife in the air to stab the five year old (I wont put his name here cause the kid has seen enough in his life and doesn't need any more drama), that is when I sprayed him. The Navy made us get sprayed with OC and if you have never been sprayed then you cant imagine the pain. It is litterally hell on earth, it is as close to liquid lava as you can get. I was the first to complain about having to go thru it but the training saved my life. The spray got on everyone there including me but because of the previous exposure I knew what to expect and worked thru it.

                  Bob told the truth about us having to be put on HIV meds, but it was a precautionary measure until the Coroner could get his results back. He turned up negative so that was a complete relief. The meds are the worse things that you could ever take, they really have some hellacious side effects that are so bad that I wont put them here but we had to do it. I had broke my toe during the melee when Ralph was getting the boy from him but the meds side effects overshadowed it and the toe healed................I only hope that the boys and the mother can as well but I doubt it and it makes me sad. The 5 year old was covered in blood to the point that you couldn't tell what race he was and luckily there were two people there that took him up and cleaned him off, Wendy and Mike.

                  My Savior that day was Deputy Sheriff Weber with the San Diego Sheriff's Dept. I was lucky enough to get to meet him at the award ceremony but I was speechless. What do you say to a man that has saved your life? He showed up right when the guy had came at me the third time and drew his gun on him and made him drop the knife. Deputy Weber is the true hero for this day's event in my mind. He ended the madness and made the community safe again. He is on my mind quite often as well as the mother and her two kids. I hope that they all are safe from this day on and live a nice long life. Not only did the Deputy get the knife away but I saw him later trying to stauch the bleeding and save the man's life. Whether he should of or not is still a debate in my mind but he did his job.........to protect and serve and I respect the hell out of that. By the way, Deputy Weber's name never made it into any papers except for here yet he deals with stuff like this on a daily basis. Him and others like him make our cities safe on a daily basis and have the utmost of my respect. I was effected by the events of that day and I only dealt with madness for seven minutes.............they do it 24/7. That takes some hellacious men.

                  Domestic Violence is totally incurable, it is a disease that only get worse with age and eventually someone's death is involved. I cant even listen to the songs that promote it because I see the singers as complete idiots who haven't seen what I have seen. I will assure you that if they had walked in my shoes they would pull the songs from the shelf and end the need to make domestic violence acceptable in society.

                  This is already to long so I will end it here. I hope that you all stay safe and win tons of money. I havent really got the time to gamble now and I wasn't that great at it when I did. You guys take care and thanks for the post Todd.

                  TWO secrets to my success

                  1. Dont tell everything that you know.
