This is my son's office. He picked me up around 7 pm and we headed to
the department office.
This shift had their briefing.
There are cookies, candy, treats and a meal remnant on the table
as the community really stepped up. Every department in the community
was visited and foods, hugs and support. A youth group
went to each department and prayed with the officers.
I was even allowed to go to jail. At the jail, I was given a tour~it was 2 am.
Around 3 am after a third arrest, several traffic stops, a noise disturbance,
and one member of this shift heading south 70 miles to support 2 officers that
were attacked and injured, the evening ended for me. For this shift at least four
more hours were left. I am humbled by the men and women that stand and
protect and serve. I am amazed at how polite and respectful they are to people
and how many people actually received warnings, directions, or assists. We traveled
a large portion of the area of the county, and I went to places I did not know existed.
Oh and yes, that tall handsome man on the back right is my Bill. The one next to
my Bill is our oldest son, and the one on the left was a very nice young man.
Please keep in perspective that the loudest voice isn't often representative of the total
group. Yes, bad people are in EVERY walk of life, but the sheer numbers and data reveal
a very different narrative than what is being presented by the media, the elected, and those on the Left.
