Chicago police sergeant among Top Cops honored in Washington

A Chicago Police sergeant was honored at the White House Saturday evening for successfully capturing two assailants in an armed robbery in the Hermosa neighborhood late last year.

The made-for-TV drama ended with the officer freeing six people – three of them children -- who had been bound with duct tape inside a store.

Sgt. Don Jerome, who works in the Grand Central district, received a TOP COPS award from the National Association of Police Organizations and was honored by both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden during a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden.

Awesome. This copper represents most of the people on this job, unfortunately, the news ALWAYS puts the spotlight on the few shitheads in the department. But when one gets a medal, it reflects on all who matter.

Some gave all, all gave some! That's what counts...funny, all the Occupiers screeching about being the 99%. What's our percentage?
