  • Nice to hear that there is still good people in this world.

  • What a great guy, we sure could use a couple of him in eureka that’s for sure.

  • Salute! A real man right there folks.

  • You have an interesting family,, as do a lot of us!

  • Oh, I remember when cops were like that….

  • To serve the public. I think there are many more like him. Sometimes people seem to stress a few bad actors.

  • Nice story, wish there were more
    like this to hear (or read)

  • This made my day.
    I, too, remember when acts like this were the norm in our area.

  • You must not have much interaction with police here.
    I have seen two good ones who actually help out in the twenty-odd years have been here.
    I have seen&experienced way more bad than good. Pretty much that way everywhere, they dont make much money&are expected to somehow cure society’s problems. It must suck but it sucks more to have them take it out on someone.
    Pretty amazing here that household break-ins are usually not investigated. After two break ins a friend had the crowbar used and fingerprints but the cops weren’t interested. And thats just crappy service to community.
    The police abuse is awful. A whole different subject, and have seen apd, epd, & sheriffs hurt people for no good reason besides they can. I don’t know anyone who calls them when they have a problem these days.

  • Myers Flat is proud of you Joe.
