Park Forest PD are a good bunch of people. Their chief came and spoke at our Guns Save Life meeting in Chicago. He didn't know us from Adam, but I think it's safe to say he liked us and we certainly liked both his presentation and his personality. On a day off, in everyday clothes, he's probably just like any one of us.
Anyway, one of his officers suffered grievous injuries while taking an armed offender into custody a couple of years prior to his presentation. Well, this March 19th marks the third-year anniversary of the incident.
While Tim Jones was not even expected to survive his wounds, he has beaten those expectations and is working hard to recover. He spent 14 months in the hospital recovering from a head wound.
Now, the Park Forest PD are asking for cards and well-wishes ahead of the third-year anniversary. If you have a moment, send him a card to thank him for his service and wish him the best on his recovery.
As for the bad guy, he's no longer stealing oxygen.
