A Pennsylvania state police trooper who was shot in a 2014 ambush has had his right leg amputated below the knee.

Trooper Alex Douglass underwent the surgery this week at a New York City hospital.
========================================
His girl friend said he was having problems with his wounded leg & had decided to have it amputated to 'improve the quality of his life.' He has been involved in athletics.

He looked pretty chipper in his hospital bed with a big grin & a thumbs up. He must have lived through hell for 3+ years with that bad leg to want to have it cut off.

And in the rest of the story it shows the man who shot him and killed a fellow officer is on death row is asking for a new trial.

He should be allowed to have a second trial with the stipulation that if found guilty again he will have his execution date moved up to the following morning.
