My best friend was shot last night. He is a police officer and was involved in a pursuit of a suspect involved in a "violent" carjacking. He was attempting to lay down stop-sticks when he was shot. He is out of surgery already and will be okay, fortunately. It was non-life threatening gunshot to the leg. The suspect was not so fortunate, and won't be shooting anyone else... ever. Just a reminder to have some appreciation and respect for your local law enforcement... most of them are husbands and fathers (and wives and mothers too!) just trying to "serve and protect" in their communities.
