Yep yep. There is really nothing for me to say as it was all said. Sorry I didnt provide you with your needed entertainment.

But I must ask how you could inject snideness and get stars for it at my expence when the thread is about the efforts of a brave man? I mean really, could you put a filter on it every now and then? Trust me, I know its hard, but do make an effort.

You never know what type of person you are going to be in this type of situation....I would like to think that we all have this potential but with a more positive outcome for both...touching post and it's important for the younger ones to see some of the important qualities of being a human being..

I agree, there are truly heroes among us who don't even know it until they are presented with the decision to act or not.

The world is a little worse since this young man left us.

Rest in Peace friend.

Not all of ATS members have video
So a synopsis is never a bad thing

But there are bad ways to ask for one.

Kudos OP for calling our attention to this. It is nice to see a good cop spot every once in a while.

"Cops show respect" huh? Well good for them, I guess.
I'll file that right next to the "Cops caught using unnecessary brutal force against man surrendering". Why the hell should I care that the cops showed ANYONE "respect?"??
Who cares??
Condolences to the family, but I simply don't care about one act of compassion showed by the thugs paid to enforce our ever increasing draconian laws.

A worthy person. It is a shame they fall and the others are what remain.

Honor and virtue are not dead. This man is testament to that being so.

That was great to hear about, sad but inspiring story.

Heroes are not a thing of the past. Let his sacrifice be an example to us all.....

thank you.

The point is
One shouldn't have to ask, on old ATS it was a given

I personally think the title should have been about the man who tried to save the kid...not about the cops but I get your point
