Item: Police chief Longo runs down suspect/DFO, HucksOnline
Christie Wood: I could tell you about several instances of the Chief literally savings
lives on duty (CPR and Heimlich, as well as backing up officers, the
rescue of fellow officers at Ruby Ridge, life saving efforts for his
dear friend Linda Huff etc.) but he is very difficult to promote. He
does not like to grand stand in any way. I normally have to talk him
into these type of press releases. He is not a braggart because he
understands very well the duties of a police officer, and he carries
them out without fanfare. We are very proud of him, and most importantly
we know he is there to back us up when the situation turns deadly.
Question: Would you rather Chief Longo risk his life occasionally to help apprehend a dangerous suspect? Or is he too valuable to the community to take such risks?
