Heartwarming, Funny and Good: News About Police Officers

    I hope this qualifies - it's a great story.

    The family of murder victim Rebekah Bletsch was shocked and outraged when the defense attorney for murderer Jeffrey Willis announced that Willis' "desire" was to not be present for the family's statements or the pronouncement of his sentence.

    As Willis left the courtroom on Monday, Dec. 18, members of the crowd called him a "coward", and told him to "rot in hell." In response, Willis blew a kiss to Bletsch's family members.

    Josephson, her sister Nicole Winberg, and her mother Deborah Reamer, all gave statements after Willis left that included remembrances of Bletsch and her "vivacious personality." They expressed their anger toward Willis, whom Josephson called "the monster of Muskegon."

    Rebekah Bletsch was shot to death by Willis on rural Automobile Road in the early evening of June 29, 2014, according to MLive. Police believe she refused to get into Willis' van and that he wanted to sexually torture her before murdering her. Willis was arrested after a missing teenager escaped, and reported being kidnapped on April 13, 2016.

    At his trial, the prosecution argued that Willis intended to kidnap Bletsch so that he could rape, torture, and kill her, similar to videos that were found at Willis' home. Thousands of downloaded videos depicting the kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder of women were found on computer hard drives at Willis' home after he was arrested. Evidence of Bletsch's DNA was found on a pair of gloves and a dildo in the toolbox of Willis' van, along with various items of bondage, a handgun, syringes with insulin, gloves, Viagra, and lists of women's names and addresses. He was sentenced to mandatory life in prison without parole.

    Muskegon County Sheriff Michael Poulin wasn’t about to let Willis get away without hearing about the pain he caused to the victim's family members. Poulin had a CD created from recordings of the victim impact statements & gave the 25-minute disc to the officers who were taking Willis to the reception center in Jackson, where male inmates are initially quarantined :jail: by the Michigan DoC. They played it five times during the transport. :teehee:

    Kansas trooper saves driver from burning tanker truck

    WICHITA, Kan. Trooper Raul Carrillo was a half hour from home traveling on the Kansas Turnpike Wednesday afternoon when he saw a tanker truck heading in the opposite direction, careening toward him.

    "I mean it happened quickly, and the next thing I knew, he's losing control and plowing into the concrete wall," Carrillo says.

    The video, which hasn't been made public by the Kansas Highway Patrol, shows the tanker truck narrowly miss Carrillo's cruiser and instantly explode into flames.

    That's when Carrillo says he learned the truck driver was trapped inside.

    "I had access to the cab through the front windshield. It had busted out which was a blessing because that gave me easier access to him rather than try to climb on top of the cab and open the door," recalls Carrillo.

    Carrillo pulled the injured driver to safety. The driver then told him the trailer was loaded with more than 7,000 gallons of diesel fuel.

    Carrillo's colleagues and friends hail the trooper a hero although hearing his comment in the video, he is quite humble.

    Body cam footage shows Ohio police officers saving choking baby
    By Amy Lieu


    Body cam footage shows two police officers in Shaker Heights, Ohio, rescuing a choking baby, as the mother's vehicle was stopped in the middle of traffic.

    The police officers on Tuesday saw the mother Tamica Pruitte’s vehicle with its emergency lights blinking and pulled up behind it, reports said.

    “We saw a female exit the car, run to the passenger rear door and appear to be in some distress,” Officer Ryan Sidders told Fox 8 Cleveland.

    Boy battling cancer for 3rd time becomes honorary deputy
    A young boy’s wish has come true thanks to an Indiana sheriff’s department

    A young boy’s wish has come true thanks to an Indiana sheriff’s department.

    WXIN-TV reports that 6-year-old Brantley Taber became an honorary sheriff’s deputy for the Henry County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday at his school. Brantley is battling cancer for the third time and has maxed out his lifetime of chemotherapy doses, and the only option left for the boy is trial medicine.

    After learning that the boy has always wanted to be an LEO, the department made his wish come true. Departments around the state who got wind of the project also went to the school to welcome the young man to the force.

    "It’s such a great cause and such a great thing for him to have just one amazing day and to know he has so many people that support him and are backing him is just a great thing," Deputy Bertrand said.

    Brantley received a badge and got to participate in mock arrests.

    Kia, Brantley’s mother, said she didn’t expect to see so many LEOs come to the school to watch her son become an honorary deputy.

    "I’m fighting back tears walking up and seeing the 50 some police officers that are here and all the police cars outside, it's overwhelming,” she said.

    What a great poem.

    “The Meaning behind The Badge” is by Rebecca "Punchy" Thomason, a Deputy Sheriff II with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Department and 911 operator with the Forsyth County 911 Center, both in Cumming, Georgia. Rebecca has been in public safety for over 17 years.

    The Meaning Behind the Badge
    We work in a job most people wouldn’t do.
    The blood running through our veins isn’t red but blue.

    Many hours of training through blood, sweat and tears.
    The patrol car is our home a majority of the year.

    Some don’t understand the split decisions we at times must make.
    Whether it’s a life we must save or a life we must take.

    Just look through our eyes and take a walk in our shoes.
    Then you’ll know THE MEANING BEHIND THE BADGE we hold so true.

    It means we will depend on our dispatchers to be our lifeline and sometimes our ears.
    It means we will help calm you down through your sorrows and tears.

    It means we will run into the bushes or give chase through the trees.
    It means we will push through the exhaustion and the pain crippling our knees.

    It means we will comfort your loved ones and rescue the injured from wrecks.
    It means we will breathe for a child who is struggling to take a breath.

    It means we will stand there for hours and listen to those who just need to talk.
    It means we will search in any type of weather for those who are lost.

    It means we have seen the good and we have seen the evil too.
    It means we have laughed…and yes, even cried with you.

    It means we are brothers and sisters forever bonded by a Thin Blue Line.
    It means I am HONORED to face the unknown…to save a life at the risk of losing mine.

    Florida deputy saves unresponsive baby's life
    By Nicole Chavez, CNN

    Deputy Jeremie Nix was on his way home when a woman flagged him down and told him her baby was unresponsive.

    Shortly after, the officer was rushing to a Florida hospital with the 3-month-old boy in his arms.

    "I'm not waiting on medics ... I'm headed to the emergency room with the baby," he told a dispatcher Wednesday.
