Get Well Soon Trooper Domino and Chief Cain



The RAGBRAI family’s thoughts and prayers are with the Iowa State Patrol’s Trooper Mark Domino and Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain who were allegedly shot while pursuing two suspected bank robbers Tuesday.  Trooper Domino is one of the Iowa State Patrol troopers who works RAGBRAI intersections each summer helping cyclists safely cross our great state. 

Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain, remains in critical condition after surgery but is rated stable, authorities said. Trooper Domino was treated and released earlier Tuesday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Trooper Domino and Chief Cain and their families.

I hope both of you recovery fully. Thanks for all you do. We don’t thank you enough until a time like this.

Just how does one get “allegedly” shot? Fortunately these two officers will be ok which is the most important thing here.

I always loved how after the bikes were waiting at an intersection the police would say ready set go! Get well soon
