I think we can all agree that being a police officer, especially in any of our major cities, is one the most demanding and dangerous jobs one can have these days. Short of conducting a house to house in some Middle Eastern hell hole, where one can be ambushed at any time, being a big city cop is about as dangerous and stressful as it gets.
Police everywhere have become targets of the insane and hate-filled left.
We should all be thankful that they remain courageous and committed to upholding the law. Without them, some of our cities would have become sites of the next “Purge” long ago – descending into violence and anarchy.
I know my fair share of city cops, and I can tell you – it takes a certain type of individual to wish to don the uniform everyday, knowing what could be in store for them. These men and women are exceptional citizens who fight the good fight because it’s the right thing.
Not everyone can or should aspire to become a cop. It takes a unique set of skills – some can be taught – some are just innate. Therefore, the heads of these police departments are always on the look out for exceptional individuals – either within their present ranks or new hires. That’s the way it should be. But today, the way things should be and reality rarely mesh.
