U.S.: Detective who helped catch serial-stabbing suspect: “Just doing my job”

  • I was just doing my job. … It was a crazy day, but I’m thankful that I made it home safe.
  • NYC Detective Marcelo Razzo • Humbly taking credit for his role in stopping serial stabbing suspect Maksim Gelman yesterday morning. Razzo was one of three cops who helped subdue the man suspected in a series of murders, carjackings and assorted other violent acts. Razzo was off-duty – and just happened to be on the train – when he helped stop the suspect, who was dramatically caught on a subway train underneath Times Square. Razzo ran from the third car to the first to help subdue him. Good work. Better response. source

Politics: Guy nearly arrested in D.C. snowball fight has great insight

  • That guy in the drab, olive coat and fuzzy wool cap being dragged through the crowd by the detective, shouting, ‘I didn’t throw that snowball’? Yeah, that’s me. At my finest.
  • Daniel Schramm • Describing what he went through after being detained by the police officer who brought a gun to a snowball fight in D.C. on Saturday. Schramm, who wrote a column for The Washington Post on the incident, tried to look at what happened from a big-picture perspective, comparing the incident to his day job as an environmental lawyer. It’s a good read. source
