My next door neighbor Robert and his partner are getting awards at the Heli expo for thier actions.Heres the news article.
Latapie and Ramar will receive the 2009 MD Helicopters Law Enforcement Award at the HELI-EXPO banquet Feb. 23 in Anaheim

TURLOCK -- The toddler who was beaten to death on a dark country road Saturday night was killed by his father, authorities said Monday.

The father, Sergio Aguiar, 27, of Turlock was killed with a single shot to the forehead fired by Modesto police officer Jerry Ramar, who was dropped on the scene in rural Stanislaus County from a helicopter as Aguiar kicked and stomped the small boy's head.

Deputy Rob Latapie, 39, flying a Sheriff's Department helicopter, turned a spotlight on the scene and saw Aguiar kicking the child "like a soccer ball" and immediately made the decision to land in an unlit cow pasture. Ramar, the flight tactical officer, jumped from the helicopter and ran about 20 yards, his duty weapon drawn, before reaching a set of barbed-wire and electric fences. He commanded Aguiar to stop. Aguiar raised his middle finger and kicked the baby again. Ramar fired a single shot to the forehead, killing Aguiar instantly, police said.

"I'm proud of my flight officer," Latapie said Monday. "Making a shot like that, under those conditions, in a low-light, high-stress condition, is almost unheard of. There aren't a lot of people who can make a shot like that in daylight at the range."

One bad guy out of the picture. That's good.

One poor defenseless toddler dead...That's terrible.

This world has some pretty sick people in it...

I applaud the officer, Robert, for a job well done!

My motto is this..Fly...Rebuild...Fly

Please tell your neighbor thanks for us! Job well done and nice shot.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Well done.

I only wish that the child had been spared both that horrific beating and ultimate death. Very tragic.

That's the best possible outcome for that very tragic situation. Well done by both officers.
