First responders helped 3 animals yesterday

From the Daily News:

An abandoned poodle, a kitten trapped in a construction fence and a cat stuck in an engine block were all rescued by kindhearted cops and firefighters Friday.

Members of Engine Co. 268 in the Rockaways, Queens, took in an abandoned poodle found wandering on Rockaway Beach Blvd. at about 5:30 a.m. Friday, firefighters said. After a good Samaritan took the 8-year-old pooch to their firehouse, firefighters took the dog to an area vet to get checked out and groomed. Firefighters footed the vet bill.

Firefighters from Engine 260 in Long Island City were flagged down about 1:50 p.m. by workers at a construction site on 12th St. where a kitten was trapped inside a construction fence. Smoke-eaters took apart the fence to rescue the kitten.

Police Officer John Passarella freed a small cat trapped in the engine block of a minivan on Brighton 4th St. in Brighton Beach about 4:30 p.m.

There are lots of heroes outside of the glaring limelight of non-heroic politicians and faux celebrity (who keep ironically demanding a hero's welcome for doing nothing), as evidenced by the quiet, innate dignity of these two real, brave heroes.

Now, if the free press and slanted, liberal media would only focus on people who make their respective communities and world a better place(instead of falsely celebrated 'heroes' who commit nothing but vile and self-serving acts to betray all good deeds and clean conscience), then there would certainly be more balance and purpose in journalism---instead of whatever it continues to be and represent.
