Three True Cops!

Created about 9 years ago

Description: This is a picture of one of my best friends. This is Pat Cocciolone. Pat was an Atlanta Police Officer from 1987-1997. Pat and her partner John Sowa were shot multiple times while returning a female subject back to her apartment. The suspect decided he did not want police officers at his front door and opened fire on both officers hitting them from behind. John Sowa was killed and Pat was left for dead. Pat was shot point blank as the suspect stood over her and took a final shot on her. Pat had to learn how to talk, walk, eat, write, all functions of a normal life all over again. Today she is doing great, it’s been a struggle but if anyone could do it, Pat could do it. A true hero and sister in blue! The other pictures is of my friend K. Baptiste another APD Officer and great brother in blue. He died on July 27, 2007 while having surgery. My friend Peter Faatz was killed in an accident responding to an officer help call during a fight. He was killed by an ambulance that entered the same intersection running code. He was dedicated to Atlanta Police Department and his service to our Country! Rest in peace.
