Let's hear it for the awesome job LE has done!

So much of the time on DU too many condemn ALL LE officers because of the bad behavior of a few. I think this crisis has revealed the value of LE and their overall POSITIVE contribution to society. THIS is what the vast majority of police officers do -- their job.

Bravo for a job well done!

3. We weren't there.

We've no idea what happened and why. I'd like to recognize these LE officers who have been working tirelessly to secure the neighborhoods in an orderly manner and are selflessly putting their lives on the line.

But thanks for shitting on the thread!

12. It is not clear he got away. He could be cowering any number of places, waiting for dark.

However, some reporters simply drove into the exclusion zone by back streets around 5 AM, so it wasn't a very well sealed exclusion zone.

21. Hope he is alive & will tell us how a scholarship winning athletic HS student got turned over.

I hope he lives a long life in a hard maximum security prison so he can think and meditate on what he has done.

You don't care because you want to try to be cute with your baseball trivia.

You are not cute.

7. Absolutely...I'm the first one to criticize abusive cops, but they often do NOT get enough credit

especially from those of us on the left. These guys put their lives in danger

on a regular basis, and get relatively little monetary reward.

In Illinois, as in other places, I suspect, they're even going after their pensions and those of

other public employees, and that really sucks in my opinion.

8. If LE had been allowed to handle the second World Trade Center attack, like they did the first, we

 

could have averted Bush's wars; the loss of constitutional protections; the loss of international prestige.

30. Thanks. I haven't heard that term. Here it is LAPD (Los Angeles Police

Department) or sheriff's office and there are other terms for the state highway patrol. LE makes sense.

head like they do, tough guy?
Oh, and don't call a cop if you get robbed or if somebody hits your car. You act like they're not worth the dirt under your feet. It makes me sick.

33. LOL, police officer are not even the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the USA......

Well, I did call the police when my car got broken into. They did not do anything but take a police report. No finger prints, no looking for evidence, never heard from them again Nothing. Police report for insurance only. So thanks for the suggestion.

Most cops never even fire their weapon during a career. So drop that shit.

And here is a stat for you! "A cop today is about as likely to be murdered on the job as someone who merely resides in about half of the country's 75 largest cities."

LOL, do more reading. You watch too much TV.

34. As I watched this unfold I kept thinking how much different it would have been after 911 if bushie

had let the domestic law enforcement handle the crime instead of the CIA and military. It would have probably taken longer than a week but it would not have led to two wars that cost enough to break the country and all the dead and wounded that now are out there.

37. As was posted elsewhere, LE handled the first World Trade Center bombing and should have been

 

allowed to handle the second, devastating, attack.
Like you point out, it would not have been able to be used as an excuse for two awful wars.

35. I agree

I treat them with respect and so far in my 65 years I've been treated by them likewise. I'd much rather have LE's as not.
Of course I'm not much of a law breaker though, never was 'cepting when I was a pot smoker. That being the lawlessness of mine
