Kralicek Shooting Anniversary Passes

I didn't realize another anniversary of the near-fatal shooting of former Coeur d'Alene police officer Mike Kralicek had almost passed until I read this Facebook post from Mike's wife, Carrie, last night: “It has been 7 years today since K57 was “down”. Our lives changed for what “appeared” to be the worst. Things are not always as they appear to be and what appears to be is not always what it seems. We have found peace and joy through the suffering, and an understanding you cannot have one without the other. I love you K57 you are more than a number. I love the new Mike and what you can do for others through honestly and openly speaking to agencies about officer involved shootings, overcoming adversity, and disability etc. You are still a HERO and one of a kind.” (2006 SR file photo: Mike Kralicek and then state senator Mike Jorgenson)

Question: Any shoutouts for Mike, Carrie, & their family?

Carrie: Would You Tell Her Parents?

On Facebook, Carrie Kralicek asked for advice re: a situation that she faced recently. I’ll let Carrie set up the question below: “Okay scenario: your kid comes home from a concert telling you so-and-so was not allowed in the concert because she couldn’t pass security’s tests for being drunk. Would you inform the parents of this 15/16 years old? Just curious. Btw if it was my kid I would hope to be informed. Drinking and driving kills.”

Question: What would you do in Carrie’s situation?
