There are many within the Hollywood elite that honor and support our Law Enforcement community but they like the greater majority of other Americans are Attracted, Called Names and put down by the BIGGER MOUTHS of the Socialist Left. Getting the TRUTH out in this mess is a very difficult and dangerous task. But we MUST CONTINUE.
