As I previously reported, one of the two cops shot in Ferguson is the son of a DEA agent with whom I worked in the early 1980s. I have received an email from my former colleague, who informs me that his son underwent two hours of surgery to remove a 40 caliber bullet from his neck. In addition, a plastic surgeon closed the entry wound on his face. He is optimistic for his son's recovery and both are heartened by all the messages of support from fellow- retired DEA agents.
Finally, when the suspected shooter was arrested, guess whose handcuffs they hooked him up with.
