Here's to Officer Walter Fahey

The Boston Globe had a nice tribute to Boston Police Officer Walter Fahey, who died in October.

[Update: I just received a very gracious email from Walter Fahey's son. He mentions this piece in particular as capturing the spirit of his father. As my father wrote before he recently passed away: We shall never see their likes again.]

Thanks for posting that Peter. As a guy that may wind up in the field, I was touched by the stories about Officer Fahey. This article should make the rounds at academies. RIP Walter.

Met Walter on a visit from Ireland and can say he was a true gentleman and came from a very famous family in Ireland.
I know he is in place where all heros meet and to his family a Happy New Year.
