November 22, 2011
A Seattle Police officer killed in the line of duty in 1935 has been awarded the state's Law Enforcement Medal of Honor.
Officer Olof Wilson was on foot patrol the evening of March 31, when he crossed the street to answer a police call box and was struck by a drunk driver. His daughter, Faye Ready, called the department to honor her father. The department's honor guard sergeant agreed that Officer Wilson was eligible, reports the Seattle Times.

I'm trying to figure out if you just don't know how to type or you don't know how to speak. I can't make heads or tails of what you are trying to say. I think you are trying to make a joke or be sarcastic but the effort is wasted because you don't make any sense.
