Officer saved by his badge
LAS VEGAS — A police officer's badge may have saved his life when it stopped a bullet during an exchange of gunfire in North Las Vegas.
Police say the 31-year-old officer was patrolling just before 10 p.m. Saturday when he heard shots being fired in an apartment complex.
While investigating, the officer came upon a person with a gun and opened fire. The officer returned fire and was hit. But the bullet hit the badge, and the officer suffered only minor injuries.\

Wow, that's awesome! I remember reading about other instances of bullets bouncing off badges as well. LEOs' guardian angels must have "cop humor".

Yeah and usually the badge company will replace the badge free of charge. (whoop dee do) They should replace the entire depts badges, that be more like it!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

Now that's the kind of ending I'd like to hear of every time there's an exchange of gunfire.....the bullets just bounce off (not the bad guy though)...http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
