Now where is the outrage? Do we see people lined up protesting anyone. No, truth here my brothers and sisters is we are all we have for each other. Not that this is a situation for a protest, but we need to be careful out there. There are too many of us getting injured and killed this year. I pray for a speedy recovery for the officer.

You hope that this never happens however it can in a heart beat. I had a similiar experience, definitely an eye opening event. I pray for your safety and recovery.

Every time I read a story like this, I know the Officer used poor tactics and placed themselves in this situation. Don't get in the doorway while the engine is running, don't try to take the keys through a window especially while the engine is running, have the person turn off the vehicle and/or exit the vehicle. Refuse to be the next dragged cop.

Rick> I don't know the entire story of the incident but I agree with you Rick. I don't know how many times I have told trainee's/rookies not to do what you said. A minute later, it's like they didn't hear a word I said. Luckly it was training and not the real deal. It's not worth putting yourself in that position. Poor tactics equals injury/death. Use common sense. and do the best you can. There will be another day to find the same idiot under a different circumstance where you will have the upper hand. I hope the officer recovers quickly and get back to work. Be safe and God Bless!!!!!
