Dashcam video shows a daring rescue by a Texas police officer

Richmond PD officer, Ramon Morales, had only seconds to react as a train was speeding towards a woman lying across train tracks in the early morning hours of June 22, 2014.

Ignoring the oncoming train, Morales was able to grab the woman under the arms and drag her to safety only moments before the train came speeding by.

It is this type of police behavior and action that is what Americans used to expect when hearing the phrase “protect and serve.” Unfortunately, rescuing suicidal people has seemingly become just another excuse to bring out the military gear, or actual target practice on live victims.

Two weeks ago we reported on a lawsuit filed by a man who was shot in the face twice after a call that he may be suicidal.

At the beginning of the month we reported on a SWAT team, snipers, and MRAP responding to a suicidal man with a knife.

In July, a family called 9-11 after their seventeen year old son threatened suicide. The police showed up and shot him to death. His mother thought police would “save him, not finish him off.”

In June, a family in San Mateo, CA called the police to get help with their troubled daughter. When police showed up, they killed her.

Morales’ actions deserve to be commended and hopefully they will serve as an example to other police.
