When police officer Ali Perez received a call that an alleged criminal was suspected of hiding inside a woman's apartment, he led his team from room-to-room and eventually found the man who was holding a loaded gun and waiting for police to arrive.
Following a shootout with the suspect, Ali was injured and knew he was in trouble when he couldn't take cover. It was at this point that he realized he had two options: he would either be killed or survive his injuries and eventually return home to his family.
Wounded and laying hopelessly on the floor, Ali said Jesus came to him and spoke to him, telling him to bless the man who shot him. So as the man pointed a gun at him, he said: "God bless you, brother." The man then had a sudden change of heart. more >>

Eighty-one-year-old cancer patient Clarence Blackmon was so hungry and helpless that he called 911 for assistance, and thanks to the generosity of one 911 operator and local police, his cupboards are now overflowing and he's asked that people stop donating to him and instead donate to the Salvation Army.
When Blackmon returned home to Fayetteville, North Carolina, after spending months in the hospital battling cancer, he saw that he had no food and realized he needed help, so he called 911; the operator, Marilyn Hinson, heard his cry for help and took action.
Hundreds of police officers from across the United States gathered at Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on Thursday to pay respects to slain officer Benjamin J. Deen, who was gunned down in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop over the weekend. The New York Yankees also reportedly arranged flowers for the service.
A sea of blue filled the pews in the packed church as several hundred law enforcement officers, some from as far away New York City, attended the hour-long service for Deen, 34. The NY Yankees also showed their support by asking a Bronx florist to arrange flowers for the funeral through University Flowers in Hattiesburg.
