Photos: Meet Moses Thompson, 'SWAT Kid'

Six-year-old Moses Thompson has an inoperable tumor in his intestinal lining that is part of an undiagnosed disease. He and his family await word on when help in the form of new, experimental studies will come - if help can come at all. After yesterday, though, he is also the newest Pima County Sheriff's Department deputy after a member of the team heard about his plight and befriended him. Take a peek at the little hero running the quarter-mile obstacle course at the Pima Regional Training Center.
