    So sorry to hear about this. I am a rider also. Folks in cars need to be more careful and put down the electronics while driving! Hope you make a full recovery and get back on the bike!

    I really hope he comes out of this okay, but one other thing bothers me: Why do you have to drag his job into this? It had nothing whatsoever to do with his occupation. If he'd been a plumber or a salesman, you wouldn't have mentioned his profession. One problem with being in law enforcement: People {and the media} can't look past the badge at the human being behind it.
