    It is sad that people down our law enforcement. Ironic how when they need to be protected it is the same individuals that they have put them down that call first.No one is perfact . Our law enforcement protects the public no matter if is right or wrong. They are not the judge nor God just out trying to do their job and maintain peace. When you are needing help in the middle of the night because of disputs and so forth who do you call. The families of these men love them and fear for them daily BECAUSE WE DO LOVE THEM and need them to come back home everyday!!

    I am a law enforcement officer. Yes, I am obligated to protect someone that is in danger. I have and will continue to do so until I die. If a cop tells you he or she does not have to protect someone in danger of death or serious injury, they are a fake. A real law enforcement officer does the job because he or she feels the desire to do it. It sure as heck is not for the pay because the local governments seem to think we don’t do anything and don’t deserve much pay. Look at the officer from Coffeeville. He now has a ton of bills to pay on a cops pay. It is a calling or desire no matter how you look at it.
