Robert Taylor = hero.
A Pinal County sheriff's deputy who saved two lives in two separate incidents -- all in about 45 minutes -- will be honored as a hero at tonight's Arizona Diamondbacks game.

On the afternoon of February 3, PCSO Deputy Robert Taylor saved the lives of an infant and an elderly man before most of us sat down for lunch.

About 11:30 a.m., the PCSO got a call about a baby who was choking. In the chaos, the baby's parents gave the 911 dispatcher the wrong address. The address was close enough, though, and Taylor, who was in the area, found the baby's mother outside her house waiting to flag down the responding officer.

Taylor ran inside and saw that the baby wasn't breathing. He immediately administered CPR and revived the tyke. She was taken to an area hospital, where she recovered.

About 45 minutes later, at 12:12 p.m. Taylor was conducting a welfare check on an 83-year-old man who was living in a vehicle outside of a trailer.

Taylor got to the vehicle but couldn't find the elderly man.

Taylor kept looking, and about a quarter-mile away found a 15-foot-deep well in which he
heard the voice of the man calling for help.

Taylor found a ladder and climbed down to the "barely-conscious" man lying at the bottom of the well. The victim was suffering from frostbite and was having trouble breathing, PCSO officials say.

Taylor picked up the man and carried him up the ladder to safety. He was treated by medics and, like the baby Taylor saved less than an hour earlier, is expected to make a full recovery.

And now: a little Enrique (no homo):

That is a real man of the law to protect and serve way to go keep up the good work. It is good to hear the good stuff about law enforcement and not the bad cop stuff.

On behalf of the non-trolls out here, I want to say job well done to this Deputy, that stuff he did is bad ass. Saving a kid, and THEN carrying a dying guy up a ladder to safety? Jesus. I barely get an excel spreadsheet done before noon and I'm high-fiving myself.

Kinda reminds me of Puroll...

Puroll was honored at a DBacks game for his heroic efforts at trying to stop a bunch of criminal illegals in Vekol Valley and was burnt by his own M16 rifle. If memory serves, U.S. Senator John McCain presented Puroll with a Purple Heart.

Then, Puroll was booted by Shurf Paul Buffoon for threatening Rubin for disclosing the truth about the Vekol Valley.

I wonder if McCain will be at tonight's DBacks game with yet another Purple Heart for this fool?

I wish we heard more about these guys doing actual work than about Babeu and Arpaio who do nothing but spread fear, hate and idiocy.

Now the baseball game is honoring a real hero this time. It was last year that they fallaciously honored that self-inflicted (and possibly mentally ill) PCSO Sheriff, coinciding the signing of SB1070 and hype.

Seems like he does great work.  I wonder why he works in Pinal County.

Yep, until you're the one at the bottom of a fifteen foot deep well without any way out... If you wish to see a tool, shine up your mirror...

Probably because no one of his caliber will work for the MCSO.

FYI He worked for MCSO before going to PCSO!

At least those of this caliber who DO work for MCSO choose to leave before they attain a position where they have to sleep with the sheriff or his command staff. Palmer and Sousa ARE not included as part of those of this caliber, by the way...

Tommy,You seem to be the kind of officer who used to go into law enforcement in order to help people, not for the power the badge gave you. I also think that, unlike many of the officers I have had contact with in my job, you didn't think that anybody not wearing a badge was "The enemy."However, I disagree with your assertion that there are still officers of this caliber in the MCSO. I worked in several forensic psych units and I witnessed first hand what happens when a "culture of abuse and corruption" is practiced by leadership. It has a way of permeating the entire facility (or organization)  unless the leadership is sent packing. This culture of corruption and abuse has had almost 2 decades to permeate the MCSO (thanks to the fear and hate driven residents of Maricopa Co) and I find it very hard to believe that there are more than a handful of honest, ethical officers who would stay in this miscarriage of a dept.
