    Default Help one of Cincinnati's Finest - please read

    Please take a few minutes to check out this post over on FH's sister site, officer.com.

    http://forums.officer.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=115534

    The Bezdek's appear to be winning by a landslide at the time of writing this, but I'd like to see it skyrocket even higher, so I'm asking people here to take a moment and vote if you are able to.

    Thanks for your time...

    (Corrected spelling of CINCINNATI isn't showing up in the thread list, but I did fix it!)

    Wow, that was awesome. I am glad he walked out of the hospital on his own power. Two years ago a friend of mine, Chippewa County, WI Sheriff's Deputy Jason Zunker (http://www.odmp.org/officer/19124-de...ason-s.-zunker) was struck and killed while setting up at a semi truck fire on they highway. He was laying out cones and was struck and killed.

    It is a miracle he lived through it. I am happy for him and both of his families, home and the police dept. Had a problem keeping a dry eye watching that.

    I couldn't find the vote count but it's +1 because of me!

    I'm sorry for you loss, Jason. Thank you for taking the time to watch Sgt. Bezdek's story.

    On the morning of the 13th (after being on officer.com for 24 hours) the vote tally was just above 9100.

    This morning the 15th (after being listed on FH.com for 24 hours) it climbed above 21,000 22,000.

    Awesome!

    The tally is listed just underneath the video on the video page.

    Whoa. What an amazing man. I have tears in my eyes after watching that video.

    38041 votes as of now.

    Resq14, may I crosspost your original post on a dog forum to which I belong? I am sure many of the members, some who are K-9 officers, will vote.

    I clicked on the link but it just said my vote had been counted (which is brilliant!) but I missed the viewing the video bit. It sounds worth seeing. Way to go everyone! Those votes are certainly adding up.
    It's not the destination, but the journey that matters.

    Stay safe

    Voting is ended and has been tallied.
    With over 42,000 votes, the officer's family won.

    Saw it on the news here this afternoon.

    Thank you for the update!

    "The voting has finished, and a local police sergeant's family are the winners."
