    FL - Man who saved Miami officer: “How could I not?”


    William Ramirez was driving to his boat-maintenance job Tuesday morning when he spotted a chilling sight on Northwest 79th Street: A Miami police officer was on the ground, trying to take cover as a man fired at him with a high-powered assault rifle.

    Thinking fast, Ramirez swerved his Dodge Caravan between the officer and the shooter, shielding the rookie officer. Then he opened the side door, pulled officer Rosny Obas to safety and sped off.

    The lesson from his heroic effort during a chaotic shootout on Miami’s streets: The best way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a van.

    “The police work to protect us,” Ramirez said Wednesday. “We have to help them. How could I not?”

    Perhaps there is hope for our world after all!

    Mr Ramerez thank you. You stepped up. You sir are a man I would be proud to meet!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Mr. Ramirez, you sir are a HERO! If you only knew how many would not only do nothing to help but actually revel in the demise of one of our brave and good policemen you would probably be astounded. My sometimes tenuous faith in humanity is restored, thank you Mr. Ramirez.
