POLICE: Our officers deserve public support

With the anniversary Tuesday of the brutal slayings of the four Lakewood police officers, it saddens me to see so much negative attention focused on law enforcement.

Two years ago I watched as thousands of people lined the streets to honor these fallen officers. It’s a shame that it takes such a horrible event to bring out the goodness in people and simple things as a YouTube video to pass such quick judgment on police officers.

I would like to thank all the men and women of law enforcement for the selfless work that they do. I will not forget the officers who made the ultimate sacrifice or the ones who continue to protect our streets. My porch light will remain burning a blue light in their honor.
