While we're bashing the guys in Binghamton, let's not forget to give kudos to Officer Justin Garner, 25, who was the only police officer on Sunday morning duty in the town of Carthage when emergency calls came in about shooting at Pinelake Health and Rehab on March 29.

He went in cold, right away, told the guy to drop the gun, and then shot him once.

"The clean-cut outdoorsman with a passion for hunting and fishing raced to the Pinelake Health and Rehab Center. Armed with a .40-caliber Glock pistol, he entered the building to confront Robert Stewart, 45, in the hallway. Garner fired his weapon once, hitting Stewart in the chest, even though Garner had already been shot three times in his foot and leg."

They got the last part wrong, apparently he got 3 shotgun pellets in his foot and leg from one shot from the other gentleman.

(Just put that gentleman in to tweak you guys ). I know he's not a gentleman. To call someone who went into a nursing home and shot people in wheelchairs with a shotgun a scumbag would justify a defamation of character lawsuit from Scumbags of America.

IMHO the word hero is thrown around too loosely these days. Not everyone who simply does his job (answering the call of duty, so to speak) is a hero. To me, a hero is someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty. Answering a call and waiting 60 minutes for SWAT backup may be technically fulfilling the call of duty. Going into the unknown and taking fire alone is above and beyond. This guy is a hero to me.

I refuse to be included in the process of bashing any cop, unless and until proven deserving of it by his or her professional peer's.
That said, while I agree with Glypnir on precious little politically, or societally, on this we do agree completely. It's been a bad 20 or 30 days for LEO's nationwide. And we've all been able to see now, how thin the veneer is of good people keeping us away from the jungle beasts. Be grateful.

Agree. We need more cops like him.

Berea, Ohio PD.

No gunplay, no "heroics".

Just a willingness not just to do their own job, but of other agencies, and off the clock in the bargain.
