Eight Michigan law enforcement officers have been shot in the line of duty in the past two weeks. One will never come home from his shift.
On Monday, Mike Sauger, President of the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police, posted this open letter on Facebook:
This statement tore me up:
“We run towards danger. We stand up. We answer the call.”
After reading this letter and accounts from the different shooting incidents, my question is twofold:
1) WTF, Michigan?
2) Why isn’t the media covering this in a big way?
The violence against our nation’s law enforcement officers MUST END. If we fail to stand with, and for, those who stand between us and danger then we deserve the chaos and anarchy which will follow.
I #BackTheBlue. How about you?
