Like many of you, I have fallen victim to the mainstream media as of late due to the horrendous murders and attacks on my fellow brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement by a band of domestic terrorists.
Just like after 9/11, this terrorism has left me feeling lost, isolated, and feeling that I cannot freely express my true disdain for these heinous crimes.
But unlike 9/11, I am making a concerted effort to pull away from the media websites (we don’t have cable TV). It is in no way to disrespect the Officers- but it is a defense mechanism that I used as a Police Officer. I simply cannot wake each day and be constantly told that these series of isolated and ineffective incidents are the new way of life here in America. It is a lie.
The greatest force to the preservation of the United States of America- our military and our police- will not be deterred by the actions of a few Manchurian Candidates, nor the puppeteers.
Beyond this post to say I wish to pay my respect to my fellow brothers and sisters, I do not expect I will speak much of these crimes in the future. I will, however, carry these men and women in my thoughts, along with the overwhelming weight of attending Police funerals, to my own grave.
