    Steelers' Ward gracious despite being handcuffed at gunpoint by police in LA

    For a brief time Thursday, Ward was detained at gunpoint in what was apparently a case of mistaken identity; car identity. Ward and a female friend were pulled over in her vehicle around 1:30 a.m. in North Hollywood after the woman driving the car had reported it stolen. Fortunately, Ward's experience went from a possible disaster to an opportunity for the Steelers wide receiver.
    According to Los Angeles Police Sergeant Maria Morrison, Ward was removed from the car and handcuffed because the responding officers had no initial way of knowing who was driving or riding in the car they were informed was stolen. The female, her name unreleased, had reported the vehicle stolen on April 19 after she was unable to ascertain where a valet had parked it. After finding it, the woman never called the police department to cancel her report. While the police verified that the woman was indeed the owner of the car, Ward remained cooperative and in secure custody. Once the story was verified, Ward was released and allowed to once again enter the vehicle and leave the scene.

    Ward, the usually hard-hitting player on the field, yet smiling teddy bear off of it, took the incident fairly well; insisiting to his fans via Facebook that he had no ill will towards the Los Angeles Police Department. His brief note to fans read:
    To my fans,
    The incident in the news that involved me getting pulled over. I want everyone to know that this was a complete misunderstanding. The police were just doing their job. Apologies were made and it's now in the past. Moving forward...Hines.

    Can't fault the police for doing their job.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    His response to the incident is refreshing to say the least.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
