Sad News

The first time I met Bill Juneau I was working on a story about the Chisago County SWAT team, which he was integral in starting and training. In fact, one of my few regrets over the last couple of years was that I didn't take him up on his offer to "flash-bang" me in order to better understand what suspects experience when SWAT comes through the front door.

That opportunity in now gone, along with Bill, who was killed in Iraq yesterday morning.

Bill made protecting people his life's work, and gave his own in that effort. My deepest sympathies go out to the Juneau family, who are mourning the loss of a son and sibling.

More thoughts here.

UPDATE: It turns out Bill was a blogger.
