    Police Chief Robert Ruskowski said Dorman grew up in Folcroft and long aspired to be a police officer. At 16, he joined Folcroft's fire company, volunteering mornings and nights throughout high school. Last June, he joined the Police Department. And this summer, he was in the final steps of applying to work for SEPTA Transit Police, Ruskowski said.

    "He's the guy . . . that you don't want to lose," Ruskowski said. "That's how great he is."

    Friends said Dorman picked up extra shifts constantly because he loved being a police officer. Around town, they said, everyone knew him.

    "He just wanted to give back to Folcroft," said Vinny Ferraccio, 26, a Glenolden resident, who said he has been friends with Dorman since they were 6. "He is the funniest, goofiest guy; he was always just there. You know Chris was someone you could always count on."

    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20..._Folcroft.html





    Police say 33-year-old Donte Brooks Island - commonly known as Abdul Wahi - fired seven shots from a .40-caliber pistol as Dorman approached, striking the officer in the face through both cheeks, in his groin, in a leg, and four times in his chest.

    Since at least 2001, court records show, Island has been arrested multiple times in Philadelphia and its suburbs for dealing drugs, illegally carrying a firearm, and engaging in disorderly conduct. Whelan said there was an active warrant for his arrest.

    He had been released from prison on parole in a federal gun case.

    Confusing MSM language? Hair-splitting (by me)? Maybe I'm not reading correctly?

    http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/new...64e7ecc4d.html: June 24
    "A man charged with shooting ... has been accused of repeated drug violations while on federal parole in a gun case.Court records show a parole officer for Donte Island requested in September that an arrest warrant be issued and a revocation hearing held....
    Island had been in prison from about 2003 to 2013 for being a felon in possession of a gun. The three years of probation that followed was set to end Saturday.
    A probation officer reported that he tested positive for marijuana repeatedly last year." bbm sbm

    http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/is-federal-parole-system.html.
    "
    Is there a federal parole system?
    Under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, Congress eliminated parole for federal defendants convicted of crimes committed after November 1, 1987. But while federal prisoners can no longer look forward to parole release, they may nevertheless earn reduced terms for good behavior. And, even though federal parole has been all but eliminated, at the time of sentencing, judges can add a period of “
    supervised release” to be served at the end of a defendant’s prison sentence. (For more on this area of law, see Probation and Supervised Release in Federal Court.)" bbm

    Terminology/definition issue? Did reporter use 'parole' & 'probation' as interchangeable terms for 'supervised release'? JM2cts.


    In any case, glad to know LEO is expected to make full recovery and that suspect was apprehended.

    It seems that nobody notices when police arrest a suspect who has shot a police officer, without shooting the suspect.

    Thank you for the update. I'm so glad he's recovered well enough to go home.

    Of course people notice - what is to be said when the right thing is done? Most posters aren't looking for trouble imo.

    Folcroft Officer returns to duty after being shot seven times

    Folcroft Police Office Christopher Dorman returned to duty Friday night after being shot seven times in June.

    “Excitement. A lot of excitement and a lot of joy," said Officer Christopher Dorman. He’s back at work doing the job he loves after about three months off of the job. Friday evening he arrived an hour early for his first day back after he was shot last June. He rushed inside to get right into uniform.

    I think this case helps explain why cops are quick to defend themselves if they think the suspect is pulling something out of their pocket.
