Thanks for Your Donations to Officer Kristi Ripatti

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:05 am



I spent part of last night adding up the funds donated to wounded Officer Kristi Ripatti through this site. She is the heroic officer who sustained a paralyzing injury, after being shot by a violent thug she was chasing through the streets of South Central Los Angeles. (The original post was here. I’m still willing to collect funds for her, or you can send them directly to the address in that post.)

I still need to send many thank-you notes to donors, and finish compiling the list of donors who wish to be mentioned by name.

The total amount collected here was $1200. I have in my hand a check for that amount, made out to Ripatti and Pearce, and I will be delivering it to my colleague Joe Porras at the Compton Courthouse today. He has agreed to deliver it to Ripatti’s husband Tim Pearce, whom he sees regularly.

On behalf of Officer Ripatti’s family, and from me as well, thank you very much for your generosity. I’ll be posting names of donors (who wish to be named) later in the week.

  1. Coincidentally, just this morning, I was wondering how she was doing and how the fund raising was going. Glad to hear it went well. But I hope the local Hundred Club got involved or that LAPD has a similar organization that will at least take care of some of the medical bills.
