I need to make a correction. A CPD officers has informed me of the following: "Just a correction regarding long guns, ALL officers are issued AR15 rifles. New personnel may not have them due to waiting to receive training, but the majority of officers have them available. We however, can CHOSE not to carry them.
Just want to be sure that it corrected. Our Chiefs/Supervisors do the best they can for us."
Secondly, I believe that Lorin's last name is spelled "Johnston." Sorry 'bout that.
Bad guy was wearing body armor and some idiot (sorry but true) somehow only allows supervisors to have long guns. Bad guy captured alive but Ofc. Chapin was shot in the face and killed. Ofc. Johnson -- who gave a kidney to another officer who needed one, sustained possible injury to his one remaining kidney. PLEASE join us in praying for Tim's family, for Lorin, and the CPD family.
