By Lester Davis My stomach dropped Tuesday afternoon as I learned that my former boss and onetime mentor, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, had been convicted on charges stemming from a federal racketeering case. I periodically followed Fattah's legal challenges, dating back to early 2014, when federal prosecutors subpoenaed documents from his congressional offices in connection with questions surrounding nonprofit organizations linked to the congressman. But I failed to fully appreciate the gravity of his situation until last Tuesday afternoon, when I stared blankly at a news alert that popped up on my cellphone announcing his conviction.

Broadcast over police radio Friday morning, the call for help was harrowing. "I'm shot in the face! I'm shot in the face!" Folcroft Police Officer Christopher Dorman shouted as gunfire boomed in the background. "I'm shot! I'm shot! I'm shot!" Yet miles away in Delaware County's 911 center, no dispatcher heard him. For four minutes on Friday morning, a computer responsible for handling all emergency calls for the Folcroft area crashed, leaving Dorman and responding officers without an essential lifeline.

Somber and Kenny Chesney are typically mutually exclusive terms, particularly at the country music superstar's concerts, which are usually non-stop, feel-good events. But halfway through Chesney's show Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, the vibe changed from celebratory to solemn when the dynamic entertainer offered a shout-out to Folcroft Police Officer Christopher Dorman, who was shot seven times Friday morning, allegedly by a career drug and weapons offender. Chesney thought that Dorman, who is expected to make a full recovery, had died.

An offer of beers and an Eagles game is how country singer Kenny Chesney apologized Sunday to a wounded Delaware County police officer he mistakenly told concertgoers had died the day before. Chesney called Officer Christopher Dorman of the Folcroft Police Department, who was shot seven times Friday morning while responding to a report of a drug deal. He is expected to make a full recovery. In a statement released Sunday morning, Chesney said he was caught up in the moment and misspoke when he told fans at his concert Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field that Dorman was dead.
