Police officers save man from drowning, then he attacks themFour Atlantic City officers with lifeguard experience pulled a drowning man from the ocean, and he returned the favor by fighting them, police said Monday.
Police said they were called to the Arkansas Avenue beach at 11 p.m. Saturday about a man who was drowning in the ocean. Officer James Herbert, who had worked on the Atlantic City Beach Patrol, grabbed a floatation device and swam out to the man, who was grabbing onto a piling under The Pier At Caesars about 200 yards from shore.
Because of rough surf and the manís large size, Herbert could not rescue the man by himself, police said. Officers Darrell Catanio and Christian Garofalo, both former Atlantic City lifeguards, and Officer Sterling Wheaton, who is on the Longport Beach Patrol, swam out to help. The four officers brought the man safely to shore.
Once he was back on land, the man, Tyrone Keys, 26, of Rosemont Place in Atlantic City, began cursing, yelling and kicking the officers, police said. Restraining him was difficult because everyone was wet and covered with sand.

No good deed goes unpunished.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"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.

What Xiphos said. Just walk him out the pier and throw him over, Tell him to stay there until he can act civilized'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!'
