Glad Officer Garcia will be okay.
Sounds like an outstanding man.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
The officer was lucky, glad he is going to be fine.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Glad he is ok...

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
After the funeral of the guy in the above story who was shot by Buffalo PD SWAT for shooting a detective, we have another interesting twist. Earlier tonight the younger brother of the deceased intentionally rammed into a squad car in front of Buffalo Police HQ and then led police on a chase that took them back to Trinity Place (the location of the standoff earlier in the week) where the younger sibling then jumped out of the car and threatned the police with what was almost certainly an unregistered / illegal handgun. (An update to the news story is now calling it a paintball marker)
Don't these fools ever learn? I give the cops a lot of credit for exercising restraint and not shooting him for his actions too. That would have made it two dead from the same family at the same location in the same week.
