It wasn’t clear why the subject attacked Officer Burdick when he was stopped, in his car, for questioning at 0300 hours. What is clear is the fact that Burdick was wearing his Second Chance® armor at the time and the knife that stopped in his concealed armor was greeted with seven shots from Burdick and a back up officer. Both attacker and officers survived their brief encounter. Burdick’s two-year-old vest has been replaced with an Ultima.
We welcome Officer John Burdick, SAVE #825, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
