Nebraska Park's Dept. worker saves police sargent's life during shootout

Joe beat me to the post. I was LaDon's steward when I was in the Parks Dept. (AFSCME Local 251)

Park's Dept. worker saves police sargent's life during shootout

"They say you can always tell who police officers are. They're the ones running to the gunfire. I think Mr. Stennis has a little police officer in him." - Chris Circo, Vice President of International Union of Police Associations (IUPA) Local 101, Omaha, Nebraska

I got this story from Police Link, and I was really impressed by the actions of LaDon Stennis.

It happened on August 20th., 2008 (from Police Link):

Stennis had been out for an evening on his Kawasaki Vulcan on Aug. 20 when he rode into the shooting scene and quickly went to Latschars aid.

Latschar had been shot after he and Swanson, members of the Police Departments gang unit, stopped a car whose driver they recognized as Corey T. Allen, a gang member whose drivers license had been revoked. Allen is accused of shooting at the officers.

FULL story at link.

1. Very touching
What a brave individual. I doubt I could have pulled that off.
