Chuck Schneider never worried about his son, Jason, as he led Baltimore County SWAT team raids, because his oldest child "was born to do the job. " But even for officers who put in 101 percent, the work can be dangerous. So instead of hanging out with his son as he once did on summer weekends, Chuck Schneider found himself Saturday morning on a Harley Davidson motorcycle leading a pack of other riders in memorializing Jason Schneider. Jason Schneider was a 13-year veteran on the force when he was killed in an exchange of gunfire during a raid on a Catonsville house in August 2013.
