Rochester Cop Struck While Helping Motorist
ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) ― A Rochester, Minn. police officer is recovering after being struck while helping a motorist who had slid into the ditch.
The Minnesota State Patrol says 37-year-old Yemane Berhane suffered a non-life-threatening injury when he was struck Sunday night.
Berhane had parked on the shoulder of U.S. 52 to help some people whose car had slid off the highway. The patrol says another driver lost control on the ice and struck the squad car, pushing it into Berhane.
The other driver was not hurt.
Berhane has been with the Rochester Police Department for four years. Last year, he was named one of the top DWI enforcers in Minnesota.The views expressed in the above post are the sole opinion of the author and do not reflect any official position by the author's employer and/or municipality.

"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."
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.

I'm glad he is doing okay, that could have been alot worst'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!'
