Here is the email from Patrick of redneckgarage.wordpress.com:
This past spring I went through our local Citizen Police Academy. THIS experience has given me a whole new level of respect for what our police officers do each day to make our communities a safe place to live. There are many parents, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, friends and children who have lost a love one because of the violence in our society.
I have two posts on my blog (redneckgarage.wordpress.com) that share my experience riding along with the police officer who facilitated the 23rd class for Livermore, CA.
A donation of $100.00 was sent to the Officer Down Memorial Page Inc.
