How Far Would You Go to Save a Fellow Cop?

How far would you go to save a fellow cop’s life?  Here is a great story about two brother officers at the Denver Police Department that will amaze you.  One police officer donates a kidney anonymously to save… the other officer’s life.  I know both of these men, and they are both very private, and the only way that I found out about this was from this Denver Post newspaper article.  It’s a great story and one that all of us can learn from.  Congratulations to both Danny and Ed and “thank you” for reaffirming what it means for a police officer to sacrifice himself to take care of a fellow officer in need.
