SIKESTON, MO --Officers often face dangers on the job, and violence escalates typically during the hot, summer months. Heartland police have already had their share of problems.
Police video from Sikeston, Missouri shows an officer facing a dangerous situation Sunday night, when he approached a large crowd gathered on the Southside of town. The officer wasn't hurt but went home with some bruises, after chunks from a cinder block hit him in the knee.
