    Why I need to quit whining...

    Here's a cool story (search on his name for more articles) about a cop in Cleveland OH who is called "Supercop" by his neighbors. If you read the article you might say "this stuff happens all the time, so what?" You would be right, except for the details:

    Simone has now been in 12 gunfights in his 35 year career.

    Simone has killed 5 badguys in his career.

    Simone has been shot 2 times.

    Simone has been stabbed.

    Simone has been struck by cars.

    Simone has been on the street (not a desk job, he was doing actual police work) for 35 years.

    Simone is 60 years of age.

    Simone credits God and his love of family.

    Simone does not glorify his actions.

    So, now I feel like I have no reason to whine about anything anymore. Officer Simone is older than me, has more years on the job and is still a hard charger. This man has given me renewed interest in the job and I hope he does the same for other officers.

    Somebody doesn't stop when ordered by an armed LEO and reaches inside a vehicle is probably gonna get shot,most cops would rather be a little on the cautious side than to make an error that costs them their lives
