Roger Slifer Needs Your Helpby Buzz on 26/06/2012
Did you like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Jem & the Holograms, Inhumanoids, Visionaries, and My Little Pony? Like to do something nice to say “thank you” to one of the guys who made those shows possible?
Writer / Producer Roger Slifer (who also co-created the Lobo character for DC) was run over by a hit & run driver in Santa Monica last Friday night (the 22nd of June). He’s in critical condition at UCLA’s Ronald Reagan hospital; from what I understand they have him in a medically induced coma following surgery to remove part of his skull to relieve pressure to his brain (this on top of broken collar bone, ribs, etc.).
The police have the matter officially under investigation but haven’t really put a lot of resources into the case.
HERE IS WHERE YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The officer in charge is Investigator Jason Olson (310) 458-2201. Please, sometime over the upcoming week, give him a call no matter where you are in the country (or the world, for that matter!) and tell Investigator Olson you’re a big fan of Roger’s work and you want the Santa Monica Police Department to know you’re hoping they will do everything in their power to bring the driver to justice.
That’s all it will take. One phone call. At your convenience.
Yeah, the same guy who gave you this…
