What have you done lately to help somebody out beside whine on hear all the time it takes a real person to step up and change the world not a cry baby like you..Nero did more then save lives he was respected something your not imagine a police dog a lair and thug having more respect then you will ever have now that very sad.

Here is a old saying about hatred that you seem to have a lot of by Booker T Washington.

"I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him"

It seems you are letting the bad cops win by tainting your soul with hatred buddy it show deeply you are one mess up dude. When you look for evil that will be the only thing you will ever find. How about the cop in the Albany area that put on a birthday party for a autistic boy that lair thug paid for that boys party out of his own pocket the mother never got in touch with police officer the policeman came to her after hearing her story about her son you are just so filled up with hatred you are missing out on many good people in this world. I'm glad I do not know you and that your not a member of my family!

Well Officer El Crappo, you piece of crap, I said I don't know what Dr. Phil might think, because I don't watch Dr. Phil. But I did watch the news last night and another fine cop, this one a 24-year veteran in law-enforcement was arrested and charged with crimes involving illegal drugs. So I guess you'll have to find another cop to get your illegal drugs from. Which should not be difficult, I'm sure. And I know you're just not going to believe it, but in the same 11 pm. news there was news about another cop in trouble. Whatever he allegedly got caught doing must be really bad, because news couldn't even say what he's in trouble for. Whatever that piece of shit got caught doing, it was being hidden it under "it's a personnel issue", where cops hide a lot a criminal shit they do.

HEROIC COPS SAVE BLIND WOMAN FROM FLOOD WATERS

911: Where is she?

Caller: About four foot underwater.

Monday night the hero officers who made the save spoke exclusively with CBS 12 News.

When the rain came down hard Thursday night and continued into Friday there were serious consequences for places like Boynton Beach.

"The whole city was basically underwater," said Officer Evan Esteves.

Drivers were stalling out by the hundreds, police officers were closing down streets trying to keep some kind of order in all of this.

But during the middle of one of the most hectic shifts in a long time, officers Evan Esteves and Rocky Zavattaro saved the life of a blind wheelchair-bound woman.

It started with a call for help around 5 oclock Friday morning.

The officers returned to the area to talk about how it all went down, when every second mattered.

They helped a homeless woman stuck in flood waters in a wooded area along SW 8th Street in Boynton Beach.  

We're told that the blind handicapped woman rescued is likely still in the hospital or at a shelter recovering.

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8)- Just days after he helped save a family from a raging apartment fire in Clairemont, a heroic San Diego police officer is at it again.

This time, officer Zach Bradley pulled a suspected drunk driver out of her wrecked vehicle. An SUV flipped over and hit a natural gas meter on the side of an apartment building in Clairemont.

It happened just hours after Bradley wrapped up a press conference where he spoke about rescuing a woman and her two daughters as they jumped from a second-story building engulfed in flames Tuesday morning.

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8)- A San Diego police officer who helped two teen-aged girls and their mother trapped on the second story of their apartment building to escape during a raging fire Tuesday morning is being heralded a hero.

OFF-DUTY COP RESCUES MAN FROM BURNING CAR, A 'CHRISTMAS DAY MIRACLE'

A bomb squad officer on his way to work and two civilians helped PULL A TRAPPED MAN FROM A BURNING STATION WAGON ON THE NORTHBOUND 405 FREEWAY IN SHERMAN OAKS ON WEDNESDAY, SAVING HIS LIFE, AUTHORITIES SAID.

Los Angeles Police Department Officer Don Thompson was southbound on the 405 on his way to work in the LAX area just before 2 p.m. when he saw the station wagon traveling on the northbound side crash into the center divider near the Ventura Boulevard exit, said LAPD spokesman Lt. Andy Neiman.

Thompson pulled over to the center median on the southbound side, jumped over the guardrail, opened the door of the car AND SAW A MAN IN HIS MID-TO-LATE 60S UNCONSCIOUS IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT.

"THE FIRE WAS STARTING TO SPREAD INSIDE THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT," NEIMAN SAID. "HE WAS ABLE TO CUT THE SEAT BELT WITH HIS KNIFE, PULLED THE GENTLEMAN OUT OF THE VEHICLE, AND TWO CITIZENS WHO ALSO STOPPED CAME UP AND ALSO ASSISTED IN PULLING THE DRIVER FURTHER AWAY FROM THE VEHICLE."

THE CAR WAS FULLY ENGULFED IN FLAMES SHORTLY AFTERWARD.

The driver, who has not been identified, was transported to a hospital with moderate injuries, officials said.

Thompson, who wasn't on duty yet but in uniform, sustained first- and second-degree burns, abrasions to his hands and knees and suffered from smoke inhalation during the rescue. The 26-year department veteran was treated at the scene and then taken to an urgent care facility for his serious injuries.

"NOBODY WOULD HAVE SURVIVED THAT VEHICLE BASED ON WHAT THE (LOS ANGELES) FIRE DEPARTMENT OBSERVED WHEN THEY ARRIVED," Neiman said. "It truly is a Christmas Day miracle. It's the best gift that Officer Thompson and the gentleman in that car could have received that day."

FORGET THE KNUCKLEHEADS, THESE ARE HEROES IN BLUE

March 15: In the middle of the night, Sgt. David Potter and police officers Jason Judge and Brian Dougherty charged into a burning apartment building on 2nd Street near Cumberland before firefighters or rescue arrived, pounding on doors to wake sleeping residents. They saved seven adults and nine kids.

Sept. 2: Police officers Patrick Keck, Raymond Diaz, Marvin Marson and Rafael Ramos did the same on Clearfield Street near C, rescuing three people. Afterward, Diaz was treated for smoke inhalation.

Just get them talking

Nov. 5: Detectives Gerard Winward and James Poulos questioned two males suspected of gunpoint robberies of iPhones in the 35th District. One of the perps was charged with a single robbery; the other admitted to five others - and to the rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Summer 2013: A team of officers from the Major Crimes Unit worked with officers from the 2nd District to nab a duo suspected of stealing "Chrysler-type" vehicles from the parking lots of hospitals, including (for shame) Fox Chase Cancer Center. In custody, one of the men confessed to stealing 35 vehicles in the Northeast. As a result,$150,000 in stolen property was recovered. Hats off to Sgt. Dan Buckley, detectives John Logan and Steve Kershaw, and police officers James Campbell, Chris McCue, Anthony Glaviano and Kevin Doerr.

Sixth sense

July 11: Long after curfew, plainclothes officers Brian Murray and Alexander Norat and Sgt. Michael Carr spotted a male bicyclist whom they thought was a juvenile and attempted to question him. The kid dropped his bike and took off through neighborhood alleys until grabbed by the officers. In his possession: a fully loaded .45-caliber handgun.

March 6: Sgt. Michael Carr brought a suspected shooting perp to the hospital for possible identification by a gunshot victim about to undergo surgery there. The victim denied the perp was the shooter, but Carr's gut told him to take detailed notes on the suspect anyway. After the surgery, the victim admitted that the suspect was, indeed, the man who had shot him but he'd been too frightened to say so. A warrant was issued and the shooter was arrested.

Payback thwarted

Nov. 1: Police officers Thomas Brown, Raymond Rutter and Joy Gallen-Ruiz stopped a van whose five occupants were reportedly about to retaliate for a prior shooting. Sharp instincts and faster reflexes allowed the officers to arrest the men without incident or injury - a miracle, considering the men carried a fully loaded sawed-off shotgun, two handguns and a big bag of ammo.

A HERO AMONG HEROES: A BOSTON COP’S STORY AT THE MARATHON

For Thomas Barrett, a patrolman in the Boston Police, what happened last Monday, April 15, hasn’t sunk in yet

Barrett thought it was a cannon, like the howitzer usually sounded on the Fourth of July. It took him a second to realize there wasn’t enough room for one at the finish line, and another second to figure out it wasn’t celebratory.“The white smoke started first, and then you could see there was black smoke,” he recalls.
FOR THE NEXT 10 SECONDS, HE AND OTHERS SPRUNG INTO ACTION AS THEY TOOK IN THE SCENE AROUND THEM: GLASS FROM BLOWN-OUT STOREFRONT WINDOWS HAD RAINED ACROSS THE NOW BLOODIED SIDEWALKS; WAIST-LEVEL METAL BARRICADES WERE COLLAPSED AND STREWN ABOUT. AND PEOPLE, INJURED AND BLEEDING, LAY EVERYWHERE.“YOU COULD SEE PEOPLE’S CLOTHES ON THE STREET. YOU COULD SEE FRAGMENTS OF—I’M NOT SURE WHAT IT WAS.”

AFTER PINPOINTING ANOTHER INJURED BYSTANDER, SOMEONE HANDED HIM A YOUNG BOY AND SAID “TAKE CARE OF HIM. YOU NEED TO GET THIS CHILD OUT OF HERE.” BARRETT’S BADGE AND FLUORESCENT YELLOW VEST GAVE HIM AWAY AS THE ONE WHO COULD MAKE IT HAPPEN. THE BOY, DRESSED IN A BLUE-GREEN FLEECE AND NAVY PANTS WITH TWIN WHITE STRIPES, HAD STRAWBERRY-BLOND HAIR. IT WAS STREAKED WITH BLOOD.

Sort of like that thing in NA, Sergeant James Foley, Rising Through the Ranks. The one who was arrested and charged in 2008 with indecent assault & battery on a child after he accidentally fell asleep in the same bed with the minor and woke up with his hand accidentally inside the young girls pajama bottoms. Accidentally, of course, after all, he's cop. And he was allegedly found not guilty, somehow. But that didn't end his career in law-enforcement. But something, something the mayor and the police department will not discuss has recently put an end to his long career in law-enforcement. If a cop doesn't lose his job for accidentally putting his hand inside the pajama bottoms of a young girl he's in bed with, and rubbing her, what must he have done to finally get fired from his job in law-enforcement? I found this sordid pajama bottoms thing, and the cop in the same bed with his hand inside the young girls pajamas bottoms in Policecrimes Officer James Foley of North Adams is arrested. Just in case you think I made it up.

"COPS SAID" oh, well then it must true, if "COPS SAID" it. Cops are LIARS and THUGS! AND SEXUAL DEVIANTS! AND MURDERERS! If I'm not mistaken Drew Peterson and Brett Seacat both SAID they did not kill their wives. And one of TOO MANY, cops charged with child porn, one of them SAID he just hogtied and gagged a little 6-year-old girl in his master bedroom to teach her a lesson about dangers of playing with ropes. Anyway, that's what that COP SAID, explaining why he gagged and hogtied a little 6-year-old girl in his master bedroom, and took bondage photos of the child hogtied, gagged and crying , in the cops master bedroom. I guess the COP was only one having a good time that day. And I wouldn't be surprised if the Massachusetts cop convicted of raping a toddler with a hot curling-iron SAID the baby made him rape her. I wouldn't be surprised if the cop SAID it was all the baby's fault.

OFFICER DOMINICK PEZZULO

Officer Pezzulo was stationed at the doors of a New York bus terminal when he heard the call for help at the World Trade Center. HE AND FOUR OTHER OFFICERS COMMANDEERED A BUS AND DROVE TO THE THE SCENE. ONCE INSIDE, ONE OF HIS FELLOW OFFICERS BECAME TRAPPED UNDER A LARGE SLAB OF CONCRETE. Working under extremely cramped conditions, Officer Pezzulo attempted to free the officer.

The collapse of the second tower triggered the settling of debris, and OFFICER PEZZULO BECAME TRAPPED UNDER A CONCRETE WALL. MORTALLY WOUNDED, OFFICER PEZZULO FIRED A SHOT FROM HIS SERVICE REVOLVER TO TRY AND SUMMON RESCUE WORKERS.

OFFICER PEZZULO’S LAST WORDS WERE:“WILLIE, DON’T FORGET. I DIED TRYING TO SAVE YOU GUYS,” REFERING TO WILL JIMENO, THE OFFICER HE FOUGHT TO FREE FROM THE CONCRETE SLAB. Pezzulo was honored in the Oliver Stone film “World Trade Center”.

OFFICER KENNETH TIETJEN

As a boy, Officer Tietjen was scared of two things: police cars and fire trucks. When he got a job that required him to ride in both of those, his family never stopped teasing him. On September 11th, Officer Tietjen heard the calls for help, commandeered a taxi, and drove to ground zero.

OFFICER TIETJEN RUSHED INTO THE NORTH TOWER, AND RESCUED SEVERAL PEOPLE. WHEN HE EMERGED FROM THE BUILDING, HE AND HIS PARTNER REALIZED THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE RESPIRATOR LEFT. OFFICER TIETJEN SMILED AT HIS PARTNER AND SAID,“SENIORITY RULES.” HE THEN GRABBED THE RESPIRATOR AND RUSHED BACK INTO THE TOWER—JUST BEFORE IT COLLAPSED.

OFFICER RICHARD GUADAGNO

OFFICER GUADAGNO WAS RETURNING FROM VACATION ON UNITED FLIGHT 93 when it was hijacked. It may never be known, but THERE IS REASON TO BELIEVE THAT OFFICER GUADAGNO WAS AMONG PASSENGERS THAT TRIED TO RETAKE THE FLIGHT, WHICH LED TO THE PLANE CRASHING INTO A FIELD IN PENNSLYVANIA, RATHER THAN ITS INTENDED TARGET.
