I'll never forget that night. I worked the 3-11:30 shift at Eden Hospital in Castro Valley. As I walked to my car in the parking lot a Sheriff Deputy's car came screeching into the lot, very close to where I was walking. I thought it was going to jump the curb. I found out later that one of their brothers had been shot and they were understandably shaken. I have a couple of Sheriff Deputies in my family who are very fine men. I can't imagine.......R.I.P. Officer Monego.
