My Take - Law Enforcement Thanks - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

My Take - Law Enforcement Thanks

Every day police officers go to work to keep our community safe. What stands between our families and a crime being committed against us? It's our Police department that's ready, willing and able to provide law and order. We hear plenty stories about police shootings these days. I received a text alert today about a Police officer getting shot in St Louis. Because information travels so quickly over the entire globe these days it seems like things happen more often than they really do. That's a part of the digital era and will only increase going forward. I think this creates certain perceptions that may not be accurate. Police officers, the Media, Priests or people in any other occupations are not perfect. But let's don't paint everyone with the same brush. We should do the right thing……the next time we see a law enforcement officer, much like we do military personnel, we should thank them for their service.
