Touching film

A relative hugs James Kuzak before a screening of “Heroes Behind the Badge.”

I loved the news story “‘Heroes' documentary tells tale of Clairton officer, others” and the message it told. It made the fact that people care about our own people known to the public. I personally had no idea about the documentary “Heroes Behind the Badge: Sacrifice & Survival,” but I'm glad to know there are people out there bringing these facts to the public.

It's touching to hear how many people came out to support a local family in need and how many people just wanted to hear the story of James Kuzak, the Clairton police officer paralyzed on duty by a gunshot. It also amazes me that he can still have so much courage to keep living his life like normal.

I just hope more people can be made aware of stories like this and more support can be given to these heroes.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
