Officer Waldis Johnson, a married father of three and a 14-year member of the Detroit Police Department, was wounded April 30 when he and his partner responded to a domestic violence call. He was shot in the head and is slowly recovering but his family needs help. This alone shows the heart of Mr. Johnson. He was literally pulling into his precinct (as his shift ended), and he didn’t want the girl in the domestic dispute to be in danger.

We’re asking for us to come together as a community and rally around this family in their time of need. 

Quote from Mr. Johnson’s son, Arin:

“His condition is getting better, but with a traumatic brain injury the recovery time is longer than expected,” he said. “He’s alert, and slowly coming out of the coma he was in. He’ll occasionally give a smile or react to something, which is great, because with an injury like he had, it could have been a lot worse. He’s breathing on his own, and slowly coming back into consciousness, but he can’t move or speak because his nervous system is shot. We’re just maintaining faith, and I’m glad he’s not brain dead.”
