Sent to, duh, I, Anonymous:

My sister and I want to thank you. I haven't had many serious run-ins with police in my life, but my limited experience has been anything but positive. Yesterday I saw you be a shining example of everything that a police officer is supposed to be. You were patient in a dramatic situation. You were not condescending. You were kind. Other officers at the scene were not. I very definitely understand that they were just doing their jobs and it was a shitty situation, but you were dealing with the exact same situation while still treating us as people that deserve respect. If you had not been there, it is very likely that things would've ended a lot worse. You probably won't read this, even if it does get published, but I have no idea how else to say thank you. So thank you. Times a hundred. My sister and I will never forget it.
