Stabbed...in the Head


"This serious attack," along with FDNY Lt. Richard Nappi's death Monday at a Brooklyn fire, serves as a reminder that "New York's Bravest and New York's Finest risk their lives every day to protect the rest of us," Bloomberg said.
------------------------------------------------------------
Amen. For those of you who haven't heard: NYPD Officer Eder Loor was stabbed in the head by an emotionally disturbed person while responding to a call in East Harlem. The suspect has at least four prior arrests.
------------------------------------------------------------
I feel like it's Groundhog Day. For anyone not familiar with this comedy classic: please stop reading my blog right now. You're not welcome here. Tongue in cheek...in all seriousness...it is a story about a weatherman who finds himself living the same day over and over and over again.
That is a comedy, this is not.
------------------------------------------------------------
Okay, so maybe the details differ...but I am tired of writing the same story; about perps who feel it is perfectly acceptable to assault, stab, or shoot NYPD Officers. It is wrong on so many levels.
------------------------------------------------------------
Police dispatched cars to Loor’s Orange County home, where Dina Loor received an odd call from one of her husband’s colleagues telling her the police were on their way.

“When I saw them coming (with) sirens, my heart stopped,” she said. “I had to pull myself together.”
-------------------------------------------------------------
This scene plays out for all of us on our worst days; the days when we allow worry to crowd the edges of our minds, the days where a text or call is long in coming. Dina Loor is currently pregnant with a son, and the couple already has a young daughter. I pray for their family, and that Officer Loor recovers quickly and completely.
