Everybody always say things like "cops put their lives on the line every day", which is true BUT, there are a million other things that can happen that can really screw up your life. I do not envy you guys, and am in awe when I think about what you've committed to. Especially at 24 ! Praying for your full recovery I'm curious about exactly how this situation went south. A cop friend of mine told me when in the same type of situation he would put it on the driver, telling them something like "tell your friends to chill or you're all going downtown" and usually the driver would turn around and say something like "SHUT THE **** UP GUYS !" and problem solved. Sounds like these folks just didn't care and went down fighting.
