After traumatic incidents, officers no longer must 'suck it up'

Email

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - There was no time for Duluth police officer Dan Fogarty to think - only time to act.

Fogarty stepped into a Piedmont Heights home expecting to clear a simple "check welfare" call.

Inside, Fogarty found a 65-year-old patient on chemotherapy brandishing a kitchen knife at his wife. Fogarty twice ordered the man to drop it. Instead, Donald Herold raised the knife, and Fogarty fired four shots at close range. Barely 30 seconds had passed.
