From one LEO to another, Please stay safe

My intention is not to upset anyone with this post, I don't work in Ferguson, but I have been on the job for 15 years and hope I don't ever have to go through something like this young Officer has. For the other LEO's on this site please be safe out there.

I totally agree it is unreal how the lies come flying out right in the face of the evidence proving otherwise!

The truth doesn't seem to matter to some of these folks. Our entire nation stands in need of prayer right now.

I am a retired U.S. Marshal with 21 years of experience, including 6 weeks in La after the Rodney King riots. It is true that logic or common sense do not come into play with these people. I remember one evening, maybe 8 or 10 of us sitting in an intersection about 2am. One young officer remarked "pretty quiet tonight" This old LAPD Sgt grunted and replied " they are all home watching their new TV's".

Tonight is key. They HAVE to take back the streets tonight or it will get REALLY ugly. That is the way mob mentality works. The sad part (as was the case in LA) it is their own community they are destroying. Go figure.......

Could not agree more. I was appalled seeing demonstrators in Cleveland blocking the Shoreway at rush hour last night.

Sarge was probably right - too funny...but not funny at the same time.

Common sense, hand-in-hand with respect, have left the building...

Not a LEO, but a HUGE THANK YOU to those that are.

Echo all above. I must say that it was not so wise to wait until night to announce the verdict when people were already gathered in the streets. A daytime announcement would have been wiser. That may have allowed some people to make better decisions. It could have made law enforcements job a little eaiser and safer. IMO.
Thanks to all leos who protect us daily.
