The Commissioner's action to promote Officer Estrada made my Christmas very special. Five stars to him and an incredible response by Officer Estrada - an exemplary act for others to follow............

If I recall corrrectly the shooter tossed his gun after shooting the officer and then fled on foot. Guess he knew he was toast if found with the weapon. There were "citizens" watching when when Estrada took the POS to the ground otherwise I would think a trial would not be needed. Outstanding job by estrada. Question...did he have a transfer request in for detectives or is this something NYPD brass did? No complaint - just curious.
