It’s obvious that you have no idea what you are talking about. Officer Patrick has been with the force for at least 3 years. I know this because he jumped in freezing cold water at Buffalo Run Park on Christmas day to try and save a life that was dear to me. This officier should be awarded for this brave act and you should never talk down on someone that risks their life everyday for you and everyone else. You say he is not a nice guy, probably because he wrote you a ticket for breaking the law. Next time, think before you start bashing our brave officers.
Editor’s Note: The officer who wrote the 71-year-old man a ticket for trying to see his pastor was not, repeat not, Officer Patrick. In point of fact, the letter accusing Officer Patrick of several things was NOT supposed to run. It was an oversight on the part of our editor. We do not run letters from people maligning anyone else, a police office or not, without some examples of said actions that are investigated. We humbly apologize to Officer Patrick, beg his forgiveness and applaud his bravery.
