This isn't a train hopping award. The same recognition would have been given if the officer had driven within 5 feet of the patient. The recognition, I might add, isn't a million dollars or a trip to the Bahamas, but a piece of paper and the sound of some hands smacking together. Ever heard your boss say 'hey... good job?' This is the equivalent. Yes, the headline seems a bit over dramatic, but the news is in the business of selling news. Oh, and for the disrespectful 'pig' comment I pose this question to you: what have you done, in your whole life, that has been good for the world?

'Life Saving Award.' The point of the commendation is to recognize actions that resulted in a life being saved. No better way to 'protect and serve' than that. The fact that there was a stopped train just adds to the story. While navigating a train may or may not be a herculean effort, it just shows that the officer did what needed to be done to go help somebody he had probably never met, and somebody he will probably never see again. A timely response along with successful defibrillation and great care by paramedics and hospital staff resulted in a guy having another holiday with his family... you should be so lucky when your time comes.

Perhaps Justin Foss can ask Dave Franzman about the police response to the accident he was involved in that sent a motorcyclist to the hospital the same day this story aired. I'm sure the police response to this burglary would have been faster if only their day was as slow and as boring as this reporters.
Foss makes reference to the average response time from 'a few years ago' as if the city hasn't changed a bit. The article also mentions that 15-20 calls were received at that particular time, and Rios felt the need to call back 2 more times. They get it already... your house was broken into...
Rios needs to move to Mayberry, or stop assuming that her missing Xbox was the most important event happening in Cedar Rapids at that particular time. Shame on her... and shame on whoever thought this was 'news.'
