Attacked police officer: Take a moment to wish him well

Six days after Southwest Precinct police officer Jason McKissack was attacked while trying to break up a fight in High Point, he is recovering at home, but probably won’t be back at work for a while. Meantime, as reported over the weekend, charges are filed against the three teenagers arrested that night. But there’s one other aspect to this story: Many people have been wondering how to send a message to Officer McKissack. The leadership committee of the newly renamed West Seattle Crime Prevention Council had the same thought, and asked if we would set up a special page here on West Seattle Blog that you could use to get a message to the officer. We did, and here it is. A short form on that page will send an e-mail to a special box, and the WSCPC leaders will make sure Officer McKissack gets your message — in addition, if you tell us on the form that it’s OK to publish your message, we’ll post it on that special page too. Click here to go to that page now.

    Please get well soon. We all miss you presence here in West Seattle. I try to muddle along without you.

    I hope you all are using the form too – this post will roll off the home page within a day or two but the form sends messages straight to the mailbox from which they will be retrieved (either viewed directly or printed out and delivered), which is why we decided to do it that way instead of just collecting comments on a post or in the WSB Forum. I will be posting those e-mail messages (provided their writers gave permission) to the special page in the morning so everyone can see. Thank you all!

    Great idea doing this. The attack sickened me and I’m glad we can tell him that what happened is not West Seattle, as far as I’m concerned, and we don’t condone it.

    Thank you for your service to the city of Seattle. Most people respect police officers so these few people that have no regard for anyone but themselves are very sad to hear about. My family will be praying for a quick recovery and a sense of peace when you return to the field. Get well soon Officer McKissack.
