I wish I knew who wrote this. I found it on Facebook on Neil Donnelly’s page. Maybe he wrote it but I wanted to share it because we must remember what our Police Officers go through to protect us each day.
Unfortunately, there are some bad cops out there but that is SO FEW and far between. Many often forget ALL THE GREAT Law Enforcement HEROES that sacrifice so much for us day in and day out. That is why I choose to do this page so I can show and remind people of the GOOD cops out their
I wish the news media would STOP reporting all the bad stories out there. Not only the cops who may have done wrong but also all the terrible people who do as well. They give to much credit to the horrible people and things they do when in reality, there are so many wonderful, loving people and stories that we should focus on.
GOD bless all of our Police Officers and keep them safe so they return home to their families each night.
“I have pulled dead, mangled bodies from cars.
I have lied to people as they were dying.
I said you are going to be fine as I held their hand and watched the life fade out.
I have held dying babies. Bought lunch for people who were mentally ill and haven’t eaten in a while.
I have had people try to stab me. Fought with men trying to shoot me.
I’ve been attacked by women while I was arresting their husband who had just severely beat them.
I have held towels on bullet wounds.
Done CPR when I knew it wouldn’t help just to make family members feel better.
I have torn down doors, fought in drug houses. Chased fugitives through the woods.
I have been in high-speed car chases.
Foot chases across an interstate during rush hour traffic.
I have been in crashes. Been squeezing the trigger about to kill a man when they came to their senses and stopped. Waded through large angry crowds by myself.
Drove like a madman to help a fellow officer. Let little kids who don’t have much sit in my patrol car and pretend they are a cop for their birthday.
I have taken a lot of people to jail. Given many breaks. Prayed for people I don’t even know. Yes, and at times I have been “violent” when I had to be. I have been kind when I could.
I admit I have driven to some dark place and cried by myself when I was overwhelmed.
I have missed Christmas and other holidays more than I wanted to.
Every cop I know has done all these things and more for lousy pay, exhausting hours, and a short life expectancy.
We don’t want your pity, I don’t even ask for your respect. Just let us do our jobs without killing us”
Thank You Police Officers of America
And whoever wrote the above.
I love to see and hear stories such as this. In my mind, this is one of the things that make a hero a hero. Officer T. Bilancione who is with the Summerville Police Department in South Carolina was on patrol and saw a little boy playing football by himself. The Officer stopped his patrol...
