Title: Get Some Sleep.
Post by: bohicajuan on April 07, 2016, 07:14:54 PM
One of my guys was on his way to a part time job Wednesday morning and fell asleep at the wheel and had a very bad accident. Multiple compound fractures in both legs, head injuries, shoulder and neck injuries. Internal injuries as well. It was touch and go for most of yesterday and we thought he might have to have one of his legs amputated. Thankfully the doctors are now saying they can save the leg. He's looking at years of rehab and I'm pretty sure his days wearing a badge are over. But he's alive and in time will recover from most but not all of his injuries.

Like a lot of cops he is divorced and has plenty of bills to pay for his kids from his first marriage and the current one. We have rules on how much someone can work an extra job, but the system is so full of holes not to mention legal concerns, if a guy worked 160 hours a week I doubt he'd get in trouble. Since they pay us next to chicken feed, everybody from majors to patrolman are working extra jobs.

But it seems to me that if you wind up dead you're not going to be able to use that money for much more than funeral expenses. He has two daughters from the first marriage and a son from the second. All three are under 12. If he died how would that have helped his kids?

We all work more for less these days and we can thank our friends in the democratic party for that. After all our taxes must go to pay for those who refuse to work and break most of the laws we have. Then our tax dollars have to go and pay for their lawyer fees, their incarceration time and of course they must be clothed, fed and properly housed. Haven't even touched on the extra goodies they get for being housed at tax payers expense.

It's not going to end in our lifetime either, but while we're still here, we need to remember who and what we are living for.

Mixed emotions on that , Bo. Sure glad he's gonna recover for the most part. I'm sure it will be a long road to recovery. Great that they can save the leg, too. I pray no compilcations set in that may reverse that decision.
 Dang shame, in this country, working 2 jobs seems to be the norm. Especially for any First responders. You guys put in alot of hours on the clock, more off the clock, deal with the lowest forms of life and with the constant uncertainty of making it home at night, for what ?? crap pay maybe a get out of jail free card and next to no respect.

And add much higher insurance premiums because of Obama's  :uglystupid2
insurance plan that crippled all of us working stiffs.  :tickedoff

I sure wish the best recovery possible for the officer, bo. It sounds like he is very fortunate to have survived.

Most of us are working lots of overtime because of the Dems. Today would be a normal day off but I will be on duty for 10 hours.  :sad:
