In The Line Of Duty
It really doesn't matter if officer Dmitry Makovkin knew he was going to die, whether he consciously embraced 22 pounds of high explosives to muffle the deadly blast, or he was simply acting instinctively to subdue a suspicious perp.
The fact remains his selfless split-second actions saved countless lives, almost all of them innocent civilians. At the ultimate price of his own life, cut w-a-y too short at age 29.
I always thought the police motto "To protect and to serve" was an American thing. Not any more.
