A National Award Nominee

How about trying for a little national recognition for a fellow officer? Over at America's Most Wanted All Star Board, Chicago has a nominee for the 2006 campaign. From the article:
  • Officer Al O'Connor is proof positive that police are always ready to respond, whether they're on duty or not. In March 2005, he was driving through Chicago's Engelwood neighborhood on his way to work, when he came upon the scene of a shootout between a uniformed railroad police officer and a suspect. The railroad officer had been hit three times, and it wasn't looking good. Officer O'Connor leapt from his personal car and managed to fire a shot off at the suspect - fatally wounding him. Officer O'Connor then managed to get the railroad officer life-saving help before he lost too much blood.
What to do? Well, this is Chicago after all. And the rules clearly say you can vote once a week. So let's get voting (voting ends 21 April)! Go to this site and vote for Al. Then hit the "Tell a Friend" button and get some more people to vote for Al. The do it again before next Friday. If we were able to get a few thousand people to sign the Hampton petition, we ought to be able to get a few votes for a deserving nominee (damn, we sound like an old time Ward boss).

What makes her think she has the right to contact anybody. Does she know this family? Why the hell would she contact them. I think its disrepectful and discusting.
As usual, just trying to make herself look important.

I look and look on screen and can't find the tell a friend button . Where is the button? Please help me find it. Is this a joke? Just where is that button? I am looking hard but I still don't see it. Al got my vote officers and if Al don't want the award give it to the A/2 gun team because they are the ones that get those guns from all them bad guys.

To 10:32 PM -
I have been running my police memorial for almost 7 years NOW.
MY Assistants have been busting their asses passing this petition around hence the reason you see Police Chiefs signing, C.O.P.S. and other people who are very incensed.

If you "feel" I don't have the right to contact anyone, then do us a favor: run your own police memorial. In fact, why don't you contact the CPD Memorial, Supt. Cline, Mayor Daley, Alderman, etc. and ask THEM WHY they are not doing anything for these people.

Yes, I'm trying to make myself look important by attaching my name to a petition against a very violent group!! It's why I have been very stressed and having chest pains, jagoff. I'm so glad you figured that one out yourself.

As someone posted on the petition: "piss off!!!!!!!!!!!"

Sorry SCC...

10:23 is a joke, or a troll. You do what 95% of us wont do unless someone else leads the way.
Never give up on your quest!
NEVER!

One right in the 10 ring and a stupid look on his face. Beautiful sight.. Hope that motherfucker is rotting in hell right now..
