    Prayers for Officer Bezdek

    Officer Bezdek, an officer for Cincinnati Police Dept, was injured yesterday trying to deploy stop sticks. He has not awakened since the accident and is currently still in critical condition. Please keep him in your prayers...

    Deploying stop sticks is always dangerous, as is our job, by it's very nature. I hope he pulls through.

    First of all prayers enroute for him and his family, I hope all turns out ok. Second what is a stop stick? I guess I could do a google search, but now I am curious, as I don't know what that is.

    *BUMP TO THE TOP*

    I'm pasting a post from another site by a Cincinnati brother about Sgt. Bezdek... please read it and watch the video. You WON'T regret it -- I promise!
    [mods if this can be reposted in a more prominent location, that would be great... I''m hoping to boost the votes as high as possible, jumped from 9,000 to 24,000!!!]

    ============================== ==

    Help a fellow brother who was critically injured

    Please follow this link to a video contest on modernmom.com

    In 2007 an officer in my department was critically injured in the line of duty while attempting to deploy stopsticks. As he was standing outside his vehicle with the sticks, the fleeing vehicle lost control and struck him almost killing him. He suffered severe trauma and was only saved due to the quick actions of fellow officers and a medical helicopter that was already airborne. His wife submitted this video she had earlier produced for a brain trauma conference.

    All we ask is that you first watch the video - it's quite moving. Then vote for it if you liked it or was touched by it! It is in the lower right corner of the page under Toni B. from Cincinnati.

    Here is the link to the news story
    http://www.officer.com/web/online/To...fficer/1$41287

    and the link to the video contest

    Thanks to all, and be safe.
