When something like this happens, it is a reminder to keep heads on a swivel no matter where you are. There is no such thing as a safe space for Police officers. Prayers to the family of this officer and his department.

Praying for a full recovery. May God watch over the Officer , Family, and loved ones. This is sad they are here to protect all of us and people hurt the officers there is no respect or concern for others anymore.

Wouldn't it be nice to go just ONE DANG DAY without an officer being killed????? I pray so hard for all our LEO's everywhere but so many people just take them for granted.

Prayers to the officer and family. If you have never been thru a shooting of a police officer, you will never understand how gut-wrenching it is—-even after you have retired.
