One of slain Calif. cop's last 911 calls helped boy

Officer James Capoot — 'Coach Jim' — will be remembered by community

VALLEJO, Calif. — One of the last 911 calls Vallejo police Officer James Capoot responded to was from an 11-year-old boy who was upset that his father was disciplining him over not doing schoolwork.

Capoot put him on a "straight and narrow path," said Roy Wright, the father of the boy, Justin Wright, who was told by Capoot that his job was to "listen to your parents and do what they say." The officer, who spoke to the boy Wednesday, the night before he was slain allegedly by a bank robbery suspect, also warned the boy not to call 911 over a similar issue again.
