Northbridge Officer Stabbed With Spear After A High Speed Chase
NORTHBRIDGE (CBS) – A Northbridge police officer was stabbed with a double-bladed spear following a car chase Friday morning.
Police say the officer, Thomas Dejordy, was helping Milford police stop a blue 2003 Jaguar that was clocked going 70 mph in a 30 mph zone.Apparently the dude made it to his home, sprinted upstairs where he grabbed a spear, and proceeded to stab the cop through his protective vest. The officer - even though wounded - was able to subdue the suspect without shooting him 15 times and took him into custody. Bravo, officer. That you managed to bring him in despite your wounds is excellent. That you were able to do it without shooting him multiple times - something that I don't think anyone would have faulted you for doing - speaks volumes to your professionalism as well as your sheer badassery.
Dude stabbed you with a spear and you still took him down. DAMN.
Second point: Can we please put to rest the idea that we have a gun problem and instead focus on a social problem? Where on earth does someone get the notion that it is an acceptable response to a) travel well over twice the speed limit; b) run from the police; or c) assault a police officer? Ironically enough, if he had shot the officer, he might have done less damage - the vest would have stopped a handgun round. That his first instinct was to grab a weapon, period, speaks volumes.
Ban guns and the criminals and insane find other weapons - do we need a Coalition to Stop Spear Violence next?
That is all.
