Kevin Parker, 34, and Christopher McDaniel 28, were arrested for burglary, theft, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery, attempted robbery, obstruction and criminal damage.The incident occurred on Monday around noon after an extensive search for possible suspects from a burglary which occurred about one hour and 40 minutes earlier. At 10:20 a.m. Monday morning a Sumner deputy had responded to an alarm east of Wellington and discovered there was a forced entry into a home.Since that point, the deputies were on the lookout. At around noon that day, a deputy spotted a suspicious vehicle and started following it.Eventually the car stopped in the 1400 block of N. Hydraulic and the deputy saw an individual walk out of the front door and put something in the trunk.The deputy, Risa Stegman, called dispatch for back-up. She pulled the police car into the driveway to block the vehicle in. Stegman then showed her badge.The suspect in the vehicle, got out, ran to the deputy’s vehicle, opened the door and started to assault Stegman.“She started hitting and scratching and so she in turn did the same to defend herself,” said Sumner County Sheriff Captain Mike Yoder to Channel 12 news.That’s when the driver in the other car used his vehicle to push the deputy’s car out of the way. The other suspect jumped into the car and the two took off.Stegman followed the pair of suspects north on U.S. 81 and relayed information to Sedgwick County Deputies and Wichita Police. Sedgwick officers found the car and the suspects trying to get away on foot, before getting apprehended.They were transported back to Sumner County where they face the charges listed above. After a search of the vehicle, property was found connecting them to three separate burglaries that had taken place in Sumner County on Dec. 3.

I have heard all my life that I am a sinner even though I love God and I like to think God loves me too.I’m sorry Jack that I didn’t kiss you that day. I’m sorry Pastor Pete but please don’t be sad. Mostly I’m sorry Gramma because I know you tried really hard to love me when no one else would. I’m sorry I let you all down – I’m sorry but I’m just tired of all the hate.I’m tired and want to sleep forever but maybe I will wake up in Heaven and there will be no hate there and only love. No one will call me bad names or hit me or remind me of my accidental place here.Everyday I watch the news and see the hate against people like me and I realize I have no future. This country I don’t recognize anymore hates me and makes laws to punish me just because I’m gay.They hate me because I love too much and love too wrong.I learned that my kind of love is bad. I heard it enough to believe it a long time ago.Everyday someone comes along that tells me that I am worthless and my love, how I love, who I love is an affront to God as if anyone truly knows God’s mind.

Email us . I love beautiful things and I cry when they are gone. There is no more beauty left in the world. It has been replaced with this alien thing called hate. Bad people killed all the beautiful things. This is not a world I want to live in.This is my choice the only choice I was ever given and it is mine alone. I love you but I won’t miss any of this and I don’t think in the end I will be missed much at all in a world that looks at me like I’m something dirty they found on the bottom of their shoe.I’m sorry I was weak and that I loved too much.MaxIn the thread, Delacroix also advised: ‘Parents, if you have a queer child, hug them and tell them you love them.’‘Do this every day,’ he urged. ‘Tell them they are beautiful and have worth, no matter what anyone else might tell them. Be their armor against hate.’Delacroix peer counsels 13 other queer kids and said beautiful messages on social media are having a ‘big impact.’He said: ‘I cannot ever thank all of you enough for helping to start the healing process for us.’Read the full thread on Twitter:This morning, I found myself up much earlier than usual, so I decided to check my email and just generally screw around on my laptop. During this time, I received an email from one of the queer teens I peer counsel as a Youth Pastor at my church.1/— Peter “Little Doc” Delacroix (@DocPeteyJ) 5 May 2018If any of this is triggering, the youth pastor also listed the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline in the US: 1-800-273-8255.You can also access help via the Suicide Prevention website.See alsoNeed support?
