So much for the small escort lol. Awesome turnout!

Thumbs up JR's night out

Finally, we were cleared to get JR out. He was in great spirits (although, he was a little pissed he wasn't allowed to drink). Being our main-breacher before he was shot, he was a big burly dude. He's lost lots of muscle mass, LE career over, but he's very much alive and I am exceptionally thankful for that. Hats off to the docs/nurses/pilots at Cleveland-Metro, simply amazing (minus the person that stole his phone when he got there, fuck you, you'll get yours).

The picture is missing a few guys (on duty, couldn't attend), but I left myself, JR and our Medic (Mike) pictured. Mike is an emergency room PA and saved JR from bleeding out. Mike deserves every bit of recognition I can give him. County or his home FD haven't written him up an award for his actions May 31st, I'm currently working on that now.

To the new LE that may see this: expect violence on every call, door knock, or citizen encounter. At lease expecting violence will get your mind focused on the next action you need to take to win your fight. But do not use that as an excuse to talk down to our people. Provide the service you'd want your grandmother to get until they give you a "reasonable" situation not to.

I'm glad he's healing and out of the hospital. It is a dangerous world; thanks to you and your guys for making it a little safer.

They are not mad at what you did, they are mad that the dude was held accountable and represented the constituency. They had to deflect their deliberate effort to prey on the suffering of the same. Ergo, they make it your fault.

Now that JR is home and healing, I'll ask the obvious question.

When will we as a civilized society start banning these assault sodas?!? What person could have any legitimate need for any thing large than a 12 oz soda??? Maybe the inner cities could have a limit of no larger than a 10 oz soda because they are so violent?? We could completely ban sodas in Chicago, but then there'd probably be a Carbonated Pipeline smuggling sodas in from Indiana. We'd need to have a one-soda-a-month law in Indiana to prevent this trafficking in sodas.

No one needs 64 ounces in a soda! Do it for the children! The crazy thing is that New York City has already tried this. Lol!

They tried a soda tax in Cook County (ie Chicago) and it created more political unrest than any other issue.

Pookie kills Ray-Ray? WGAF. Add a penny per oz to the price of grape pop? REVOLUTION!
