OAKLAND, Calif. —
A gravely ill Oakland boy fulfilled one of his dreams Thursday thanks to the Oakland Police Department as he was made an honorary officer during the OPD academy graduation ceremony.
During the moving ceremony, a number of adults who wear a badge learned a lot about bravery from the little boy.
Eight-year-old Emilio Penn has always wanted to be an Oakland police officer, the kind that chases down the bad guys and keeps the city safe
"I love Oakland," said Emilio.
Though Emilio is seriously ill, the department helped make his dream come true in a packed auditorium as Oakland Police graduated 34 new officers plus one young honorary member.
Emilio got a uniform complete with baton and badge. And a few words of encouragement from his new "boss," the Chief of Police Sean Whent. more at link: http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/local/...police-/ngYw8/This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!
Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.
I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
