    Wife in wreck, good experience w/LEO

    My wife was involved in a car wreck this week (she is a little sore, can't say so much for the car).
    The PD got there first and talked to her through the broken driver's door (she couldn't get out of the car, had to get cut out), asked for her info and told her EMS was almost there. She gave him her DL and he started to leave, but she said 'officer, I have this too' and handed him her CHL. She told him 'I have a glock and a spare mag in my purse and 2 more spare mags in the console'. The LEO just smiled, giggled slightly, and said 'cool'.
    When my wife was transported by ambulance to the hospital as a precaution (pain in chest/shoulder) the officer secured her purse, wallet, and mp3 player and brought them to the hospital. I was in the ER room and he brought them in, told me her gun is in the purse and he set it on the counter by the sink, did his report, etc and left. I told him I'd take it all out to my car in a minute and he said no rush don't worry about it.
    I give big kudos to the officer for handling things the way he did. Its nice living here!

    Sounded like the ideal way to do things. Except the accident and the hospital of course. Glad she's okay. +1 for the extra ammo.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Despite some member's believing differently, I believe this is the way most officers would handle this situation. I hope the wife is doing okay - the car can always be replaced; family can't.

    Have to agree with Bumper. I think you'll find a lot more cops with a positive attitude, than a negative one. It's just like permit holders, you hear about the bad ones, not the good ones.

    Wow

    Glad she's OK. That is for sure worth a letter to the PD supervisor once everything is back to normal.

    Sorry for the car and the bangs on the Wife, hope nothing more that a few bruises. Great interaction with the LEO, and I love the giggle part.

    I was about to say the same thing; an attaboy to the LEO's boss is in order.

    I don't think I would mention the specifics though just in case the "Super" is not pro CC. I would just say he acted in a very professional manner and was very kind and supportive of your wife in her time of need.

    Amen on all of this. Many years ago my wife was in an accident and called me at work to tell me about it. She said "I am OK and Linda was in her car seat and she is OK" then dropped the conversation. I screamed "What about Jennie?" My wife said "Oh, she's at dance".

    Those are two of my daughters and I almost had a fit. Many years later the oldest one got in a car accident and I took off to see about it. As I drove up I made sure the first thing I asked was if she was alright. The car could be prepared. The investigating officer ran up to me telling me that he saw the whole thing and there wasn't a thing my daughter could have done to prevent it. It was almost like he was trying to calm me down before I go upset with my daughter.

    As Bumper says the car can be reparied or replaced. People can't and not all LEO are out to arrest anyone they come into contact with.
