A reason for thanks: Officer Hanly is OK

First and foremost this morning, there is this:

Ridley Park Police Officer Marc Hanly is going to be just fine.

For that he can thank the bullet-proof vest he was wearing when he responded to a call of a suicidal man at an apartment complex in Norwood.

Hanly was at he door with officers from several departments when the man opened fire.

Hanly was hit twice, once in the chest and once in the leg. His vest stopped what could have been a tragic ending to this already troubling story.

His was rushed to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, and was later released. He is expected to make a full recovery.

For that I think everyone can be grateful
