Just a shout out to ALL Law Enforcement Officers.

In a day and age when much of the news out there with a LEO involved is negative. Yet when it hits the fan, I imagine the worst abusers still say call the Cops….

I live South of Dayton, Ohio, and sadly last night some lost soul decided to become the latest “shooter of innocent parties” The news reports are that within 6 seconds of the first shot fired, the shooter was fatally dropped by a Dayton Police officer. I can only imagine this well supplied shooter would have claimed many more that the 9 victims he did claim. If you talk with your Lord, please ask that all of the victims, and their families are added so hopefully no one else passes due to this.

My hat is off to him, and to all LEO’s who look out for us while we sleep, and go about our business during the day.

I’m a HUGE 2nd Amendment supporter, and ask that this not become a “gun” thing. It was an $#!)head thing, and a Cop was there , and quickly brought the $#!)head down.

My bad. make that within 60 seconds. New Newsroom announcer. The earlier guy has a lisp, and it sounded like 6 seconds.

It’s an ongoing news report, Mayor, and others on answering all of the absolutely asinine questions from the media. They are truly the worst of humanity.

+1 for supporting LEOs.
They have an incredibly tough job and it is often thankless at that.
LAPD has a motto “To protect and serve” and while it isn’t the oath that an officer takes, it sums up what they dedicate their lives to doing.
My thoughts and prayers are with the families who’ve lost loved ones.

Thank God for that thin blue line. Those men and women deserve all our respect and gratitude.

May the Lord bless the afflicted families and the officers who protect. May the medical personnel be blessed with wisdom to properly care for those who are wounded.

People should realize that when they get stopped for a traffic violation that they did indeed break the law and should not blame the LEO. I support all LEOs for their dedicated work. I have broken the law, but never blamed the LEO for my actions.

This makes me think back to a time when the term for police became “pig”. As a child at this time I can remember a bumper sticker which read “The next time you need help call a hippie”. I just don’t understand this latest craze of dumping water on police officers. It looks as if people are baiting the officers to react with cameras rolling to catch the “unprovoked aggression”. This passive role the police have been taking needs to stop IMO.

The other thing that comes to mind is that these officers are human like the rest of us and may have PTSD or other behavioural issues. I don’t think it is a wise choice to throw water on someone that has a gun at their side. You just never know when someone has had enough and reached a breaking point.

I think law enforcement did an outstanding job this weekend and I am so glad they were there. No doubt they saved many lives. I give a big Thank You to all first responders out there.

You are right Controlfeak.
That is so outrageous that people are attacking LEOs by dumping water on them and even more outrageous the response that the police have had. I think there is new legislation to make that a felony but still, you have to wonder at the mentality of the people doing that. That would provoke most people into a violent reaction.
The LEOs must be exercising extreme control but they should have some kind of legal recourse when it happens.

This is propagandists pushing your buttons to distract you from serious issues. The cops can handle themselves and any idiots throwing water.
