Keep these kinds of posts comming, folks.  After all the bad crap I read about on the news sites, these things are great to watch before I head to bed at night, gives me renewed hope and faith.

In the radio and public safety equipment business, and I am sure others on this board can agree with me. I interact and meet alotta of peace officers. They are just ordinary folks although doing extraordinary professions. People act all surprised and or confused when they act just like a normal human being or are not just some kind of "nazi". My coworkers, those under me, and even myself sometime have a hard time seeing past the uniform. The reality of it is I can treat them like any other customer or person regaurdless of what they do and as long I show the respect and professionalism that is expected of me they will do the same. Treat them like a person and they will do the same 99% of the time. Younger/new guys see me interact with some officers and the way I treat em like just one of the guys makes the younger/new guys jaws drop.

No, this is a good story for this thread! 

I just hope "... a man in plain clothes holding a gun on the stabbing suspect ..." LAPD doesn't cite him for carrying.

Skunklings?

Fort Worth, TX police 'carjack' a vehicle at a McDonald's:

Three Fort Worth police officers recently saved a kitten stuck under the hood of a car.

Officer Simmons, Officer Pittman and Officer Galvan were called to a McDonald’s at Jacksboro Highway and Ephriham Avenue.

The car’s owner and some employees had tried unsuccessfully to get the kitten out.
Officer Pittman and Officer Galvan worked (to) lift the car using a jack. Officer Simmons took off his gear, crawled underneath the car and managed to retrieve the kitten safely.

ParaMedic and FireFighters in NC disrupt expressway traffic on Christmas morning:*

Justin Nalley is a WakeMed paramedic in Raleigh, North Carolina. He was just finishing up his overnight shift Christmas morning, when he spotted a dog in the middle of the 504 expressway. The dog was hurt, but still breathing, and he knew he had to do something.

Around this same time, Morrisville firefighters Michael Lindsey and Mike Chorney were ending their shifts and on their way home when they saw Nalley pulled over. They also decided to pull over and help.

They gathered up the injured dog and got her to the Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Raleigh. Emergency vet Curtis Ostrom said that their quick actions may have saved the dog's life.

“What myself and others did wasn’t so much an act of heroism, but something we do every day of our lives and is second nature,” Nalley said.

Ostrom said that the dog had a broken leg, and may have been hit by a car judging by the internal bleeding she was suffering from. As of the writing of this article, the four-year-old dog called Cora is well on her way to recovery.

“She’s a pretty tough dog, and so most of her injuries at this point have stabilized,” Ostrom said. “It’s mostly just her cuts and abrasions healing up.

* = FireFighters and ParaMedics are not bad cops, but sometimes their conduct gets them included into threads about bad cops...

Should we change the title of the thread to bad public safety people in the news?

No. I am the one that hijacked your thread by posting 'other than bad cop stories'. I apologize.

As far as this thread goes. I would leave it titled as is. Current society seems to expect stories about acts of kindness conduct from firefighters, ems, wrecker drivers, telecommunicators, emergency management, postmen, electric company workers, and similar vocations, so posting about them does not catch the reader's emotions quite like a post about a cop doing an act of kindness. We (LEOs) do those acts of kindness often. They just don't get reported in the same way. It is the media that keeps putting us in the negative spotlight (and overlooking the positive conduct). I think it boils down to: reporting about LEO bad conduct provides headlines, whereas reporting about LEO good conduct does not (very often).

Having a "Bad Cops In The News", limited to stories about LEOs, thread is good. I will refrain from posting 'bad conduct' stories performed by other vocations here..

Maybe a separate thread can be created for the other public service occupations?
