Re: A gift

A decade ago, a paroled murderer from Kansas City, Missouri and his accomplice came to Omaha, stole a truck and robbed a local Taco Bell, shooting the place up while they were at it. They crossed paths with a cruiser occupied by a couple everyday street cops out on patrol about ten minutes later... my partner Kirk Kunze and I.

What ensued was a 15 minute pursuit and rolling gun battle through downtown Omaha, a incident I couldn't have dreamed would happen and one I'll never forget.

Today, I had this made up of solid walnut and brass at a trophy and awards shop. I'm going to give it to Jason Pratt's wife tonight when I see her at the hospital.

I've been searching for something to do, something of true meaning, and this is what I arrived at.

Re: A gift

That's a beautiful thing to do, Chain. I'm sitting here typing with tears in my eyes. I wish your friend would pull through. I know it looks grim.

Re: A gift

That's very nice. I'm sure it will mean a lot to them.

Re: A gift

Good judgement call. Hopefully the department will do something along the same lines for him also.

Re: A gift

Very nice gesture, and now I have a lump in my throat.

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

Re: A gift

That is a truly nice gesture Chain, to give something that you earned while putting your life on the line. We at the .org are still pulling for your friend, hoping for a positive outcome. Hang in there Chain.
