On the Front Lines

For anyone who does not believe that our Law Enforcement Officers are on the front lines, I will gladly point you towards yesterday's latest assault on our men and women in uniform: a hatchet attack on four rookie NYPD Officers in Queens, with two cops having to go to the hospital, one of them with a skull fracture.
Hashtag friggin' ENOUGH! 
I don't know about the rest of you, but I've had it. The talking heads are now poised and the chatter has begun: is there a terror connection to this horrific attack?
Do we need to find out?
The answer is yes, but...does it matter? And before you jump down my proverbial throat, hear me out here: what I am saying is that either way, we need to make sure that our Law Enforcement Officers are backed up and protected at every turn. Use of force? There should be absolutely no questions regarding this incident.
Unfortunately New York City's present Mayor has defunded and worked hard to ensure that the NYPD's efforts to profile those that might do us harm are all but eradicated; he's so focused on being politically correct that many Officers feel as if their hands are tied.
There should be no questions here; there's a video of the attack, and there are two NYPD Officers that presently need medical care as a result. The good news? The perpetrator is no longer with us.
As it should be.


  1. I whole heartedly agree with everything you said. Our men and women in blue/brown are putting their lives on the line everyday for us, and they should be able to rest assured that someone has their backs no matter what. It is sad that lately all you hear is more attacking from their heads of office and state.

  2. @Commchick: I feel like I write this post, or some variation thereof, every few months...!
    Sad, isn't it?
