    They go through hell on a daily basis, they have my respect. Many folks complain about them, but who's the FIRST person they call when they're in some sort of trouble?

    In life there is good and bad EVERY where. You should be taught to not judge all by the few in anything. Not to ignore, but see and fix. Not just the things that are off, but your personal approach to what ever the situation. Maybe we need to bring back our old sayings. " don't throw the baby out with the bath water, separate the wheat from the chaff.
    One bad apple only spoils the bunch if you don't take it out remove the bad spot. You then have the rest of a good apple.
    Complaining isn't a bad thing, its how normal people use to start a dialogue,point out some flaws but also discover righteous reasoning. I'm sad that our protectors have been the bullseye for a poorly taught and angry cancel culture . One we ALL allowed to fester and grow.

    Some days I'm glad I retired. Others I wish I was still out there to fight the fight.

    An officer one county over was knocked out yesterday. Guy got off work and stopped for a traffic obstruction with his cruiser. Next thing he knows he sees an suv passing by and someone screamed. They threw something and hit him in the head. Citizen found him still unconscious 5 mins after being hit.

    EDIT---they investigated and found out the young cop lied. Charged him. Good.

    Thank you officers!

    For Church my 3 year old son does a thing called spy camp. His mission this weekend was to make cookies for a hero. So he gave a bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies to our local officers. We back our Blue!
