A Tough Week for Blue

p.m.

The last week of February was a tough one. 

We lost four officers.  All of them were lost to felonious murder too.

Ambush-style and unprovoked attacks continue to rise.  And it seems that the more they're reported in the media, they more they continue to occur.

Look at their faces.  This job is not joke.

Rest in peace our brethren.
