In the attack on Park Station,(Feb.16,1970) my sergeant, Brian McDonnel, took several of these. One was driven through his eye and into his brain and some of the others ripped into his jugular vein. Officer Bob Fogarty, who was standing next to him was a big man. Probably between 250 and 300 lbs. He took nineteen of these in his body and lost an eye. He retired on disability and worked as an electrician. He died in the past few years at the age of eighty two.

One of my friends,who was sitting at a desk, had just leaned his chair back against the east wall when the bomb blew out the south window. Had he not done this, he would have had his head blown off. When the guys rushed down from the upstairs locker room, they found him staggering around, talking incohently, in a daze, with his gun out. He was still out of it. A sergeant in the adjoining office was knocked unconcious and a couple of patrolmen suffered injuries.

Had the bomb not gone off early, the rest of the early midnight watch would have been downstairs, instead of in the upstairs locker room, where they were preparing to go on duty. The office would have been loaded with cops getting their hotsheets and notebooks updated and checking teletypes before the lineup(briefing)

I was the first car on the scene from the street and the first thing I saw was a buddy of mine, who had been tossed over the roof of his radio car, getting up off the ground. His partner was still on the ground, propped up on one elbow, dazed. The only thing that saved them from taking the brunt of the outward blast was that the sergeants car was between them and the window where the bomb went off. The cop who was getting up, just recently had another shoulder operation. His shoulder problems are a result of the bombing and although he could have probably retired on disability he didn't. He stayed in, made sergeant, and did his thirty years.

This is part of what inspired my book. The other incidents were also inspired by real events.

Before I forget. Thanks for buying the book. I hope you enjoy it.

I hope this comment comes out right after reading the serious post above this one, Para. I have followed this tragic mess for many years as it came in and out of the press and the last several here on socnet.

I had to get up at 0230 this morning and was having some espresso before hitting the road. I had downloaded but not started the book yet and I read chapter one, I found it extremely satisfying so much so I was laughing out loud. Pretty sure a copy will find it's way to Chicagoland...

Congrats on getting the book out. Have some good time for reading this evening.


RIP to those folks of which you spoke

Thanks.

FYI, I had and interview on a radio program on a Fox FM station out of Reno. It is "Tipping Point," with Boone Cutler. I discuss my book and the events that were the inspiration for the fictitional story. My part of the program begins at minute 30:51. It and the commentary about it, proceeds until the end of the program. The program can be found on YouTube.

I just finished this book. It was great. I love the way it combined several real people in a way that was fiction but yet you know it was not. That along with the name changes, the story line made it a good read. The Walter Mitty in me did surface from time to time. God Bless Ryan O'Hara wherever you are.

I was given the opportunity to be interviewed on Boone Cutler's show "Tipping Point" a few days ago. The topic of my interview was my book, "The Rampage of Ryan O'Hara," and the domestic terrorism that I experienced as a young cop that inspired it.My part of the program, which, incidentally, airs daily out of the Reno, Nevada area, starts at minute 30:51.

I liked it! I normally wouldn't like the good guy taking vengeance. Parajuevos you could really feel his pain and anger in his thoughts. Powerful character. Wish it was longer and I hope you follow up on it with another.

I'd not normally buy a book about the good guys taking revenge but being a SOCNET author I decided to support you.

Some people get away with things they shouldn't and those some people need to be disappeared. What chaps my ass is those people now have access to the highest office in the land and power.

Larry Grathwohl and I were interviewed last night. He spoke about his undercover experience in the Weather Underground and I gave my views from a police perspective. The Weather Underground, it's members and what they did served as the idea behind my book.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cfp-radio/2012/05/21 the hagmann-hagmann-report

The only shaky part of the show was when a woman called and started to interject religion into the discussion. It didn't last long, however, and the conversation soon got back on track.
