    Too bad that God didn’t tell the other police officers who have been murdered in the line of duty to put on the bulletproof vest. Too bad he didn’t tell the black people murdered by police officers to put on the bulletproof vest.

    Oh well, God works in mysterious ways.

    Good thing indeed. Of course the bad guys could have been using armor piercing bullets, compliments of the National Rifle Association, and this might have been a different story all together.

    It’s probably best to always keep those vests on…better safer than sorrier!

    Okay, for all haters out there, you can stop hating on this police officer now. He’s still alive, he gives God the credit for it, and there’s nothing you can do about either fact. So go back to sleep or something.

  • Jonathan

    Maybe God did, and they just didn’t listen.
    Have you interviewed these dead people that you are talking about?

    Is it me or does something not seem right about this story? A car with three or four African American men drives up unprovoked to a unmarked car in an empty parking lot in the middle of the night and shoot at the off-duty police officer sitting in the front. Why? And that line the officer says,

    “I know it sounds funny, but I’m glad that I stood in the gap of someone else not being a victim of these individuals wanting to cause crime in the neighborhood. I’m glad I was there to stop them from doing that and make an arrest on these guys before they hurt anybody else.”

    Don’t tell me its because they were black men and that’s just what ‘they” do. There’s something else to this story.

  • Rob

    Wow, Jonathon, you really are that stu​pid.

    The wounded, non-dead ones did not say that god spoke to them.

    God doesn’t exist, so it would be pretty hard for him to speak…

  • @Doc,

    “Haters”

    Is that supposed to be a defense?!
    Last time I checked you were a ‘HATER’ when Muslims used that same logic:

    “Allah wants us to chop off heads since he has provided us with these sharp swords!” – ISIS

    It is right and appropriate to hate it
    when people refuse to take personal responsibility for their actions.
    Since this policeman clearly cannot demonstrate any god did anything – he owes it to the rest of us to tell the truth and admit he doesn’t know why lucky things sometimes happen.
