VIDEO: NYPD Officer Wounded in Hatchet Attack Cheered by Comrades as He Leaves Hospital

Six days after he was savagely attacked by a madman with a hatchet, a rookie cop left a Queens hospital Wednesday to the wild cheers of hundreds of his brothers and sisters in blue.

Officer Kenneth Healey, his head and right arm bandaged, was wheeled out of Jamaica Hospital about 3:30 p.m. as 200 uniformed officers clapped and cheered and members of a police bagpipe band played Irish tunes.

An emotional Healey, 25, wiped tears from his eyes with his injured hand, the New York Daily News reports.

In a dramatic move that made the cheers even louder, Healey got out of his wheelchair — which was being pushed by his father, a Nassau County police detective — and walked the last steps to an ambulance.

Officer Healey is a true hero. All should watch the short video of his L.E. Family being at his release from hospital. Excellent display of camaraderie.

Sad thing about it it's a wonder that Erica`von With-Holder @ Dept. of No-Justice wasn't there with his G-Men (GANGSTERS) to arrest Officer Healey for hitting the terrorist's axe with his head. A strong note of sarcasm, but that's the way I feel about this U.S.D.O.J. & the thugs running it.
