    Exmeplary police action recently

    I need to find an example of some exemplary police action that's made the news lately. A link to the news article gets you 5 bonus points

    This could be anything where the police officer(s) have went above and beyond the call of duty.

    Thanks in advance

    Who might you be, sir?

    Try and get over to the intro and tell us about yourself.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    Off-duty deputy hailed as hero after shootout



    03/09/2010
    By JEFF CARLTON / Associated Press

    An off-duty sheriff's deputy was hailed as a hero Monday for preventing further bloodshed by shooting at a gunman who was headed into a Walmart in east Texas following a shootout with police.

    Delta County Deputy Paul Robertson was shot in the chest Sunday as he exchanged gunfire with the man at the store in Commerce, Sheriff Gerald Teague said. The suspect died. Authorities say they are unsure whether Robertson or Commerce police fired the fatal shots.

    "Obviously, he saved lives," Teague said. "There's no telling what the guy was going to do in Walmart with those weapons."

    Authorities identified the gunman as 29-year-old Artenio Rodriguez of Commerce. A working telephone number could not be located for his family.

    The incident began when police received a call that Rodriguez was firing shots into the air in nearby Greenville, about 50 miles northeast of Dallas. Commerce police intercepted the car just outside the city limits, where the man exchanged gunfire with officers, city spokeswoman Marty Cunningham said.

    He then drove to Walmart and tried to enter the store carrying a handgun and an assault rifle.

    ...

    Robertson shot at the suspect six times, Teague said. It's unclear how many times the suspect was struck. Police also fired on him from the parking lot.

    ...

    The deputy was texting friends and talking on the telephone Monday and expected to be released from the hospital later in the day, Teague said.
