    Why are these vermin allowed to walk around our streets?

    They usually are not. We typically make them stay on station, and we only allow them to leave when a certain bell rings. Even then, they must leave on a large, loud, brightly colored truck so everyone knows where they are.

    Great job by the firefighter, I wonder what the sheriff thinks about concealed carry permit holders?

    "The firefighter used his firearm and probably saved the officer's life," Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said. "You just don't expect that."

    Fire-Rescue Chief Steve Jerauld said firefighters are trained to save lives, not take them, but he's glad the officer was rescued and no one else was injured.

    "It could have turned out much differently," Jerauld said. "It could have turned out having to attend a firefighter's funeral and a police officer's funeral."

    Good job all around.

    Great Job!!

    Here is a question? If You did the same thing and was asked to be honored the same way, Would you accept?

    I think I would pass.

    This begs a better question (IMO), and that is, would the police department have extended the same honor (the combat cross) to an ordinary lawfully armed citizen who came upon the struggle and performed the same way as the firefighter in this instance?

    Typically, I'd say yes. I've read a few articles about that happening in the past. I guess the firefighter was just that; an ordinary lawfully armed citizen.

    Cruz was released from jail just four days earlier on a charge of attacking a Rivera Beach police officer but was stopped in that case with a stun gun.

    That just has to make you wonder...
