Who are you to tell this man that he has no right to be upset that the POLICE didnt contact him when his son died? I am in school to become a police officer and im not claiming to know everything but what i do know is that if you dont have anything better to do than to sit there and ridicule someone who is grieving the loss of their CHILD then im sorry but thats pretty pathetic. Unless you have lost a child then you cant possibly understand what these people are going through. Yes some of the things he said were a little over the top but i would like to see what you would say if it were your child. You would be just as upset, unless of course you dont have a heart, which judging by your comment may be the case. It doesnt matter how old the person is, it is the Officer's job to notify the family. If the officer would have respected this man enough to tell him that his son was dead then he would have recieved respect in return. You have to give respect to earn respect. So next time you decide to pull yourself away from the couch long enough to post a comment, Put yourself in the other person's shoes. If I were the officer that made the mistake of not telling him, then i would be a man and apologize and admit my mistake. This comment is not to offend any of the officers of the Dearborn Heights police department. I respect you all and i pray that God keeps you safe ou8t there. Im just tired of people who think they can talk to people without any feeling of remorse for their loss. I have lost many people who were very close to me and i wouldnt wish it on anyone. I cant even imagine what losing a child would be like and I Respect this man for being as civil as he was. so Amy, the next time you decide to open your mouth and degrade someone who has just lost a child, Look inside your tiny shriveled heart and try to find a little bit of compassion, however hard it may be.
What a great job of stirring up old wounds. Amy is entitled to her opinion and you tell her not to be judgmental but yet you are doing the same thing. Amy does know what it is like to loss someone. We lost Officer Jason Makowski in May 2006 and it still affects lots of people. I like how you claim that you do not know everything and then talk like you do. There are three sides to every story, yours, mine, and the truth. Also as sad as it is, if you post things about how your son died on the internet then you open the door for all kinds of people to comment about, especially when its on a message board. Good luck becoming a police officer.
