Any DPD guys here know the guy? Any update on his condition?
Prayers to you guys, the officer, and his family. Also, don't go near the comments...for the most part they're supportive, but some of them will just enrage you, as they did my "friend", C4C5W1."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
