Once in awhile a former gangsta makes amends. I hope the attention Mr Alexander gets, and rightly deserves encourages others. Certainly we don't want vigilantes to get in the way, but in this case the tides were turned and someone helped out a fellow officer, usually it is other way around. Good job Mr. Alexander.

Thank Mr. Alexander for "doing the right thing". Kudos to you for coming to the aid of my brother.

Good for you Mr. Alexander. You get a thank you from all of us in law enforcement. Good luck to you in the future, and I hope everything works out for you.

Excellent example of how the community can support us as we serve them. Thank you Mr. Alexander, you deserve recognition for your action. Bravo!

CCSPDO, well said, sometimes a gang member does choose to follow the right path and can help out. Check out the book "Run Baby Run" by Nicky Cruz, a former gang member that is now a minister and works with young people. Great stuff!
