It’s sobering to read that 2,000 police officers were assaulted in the last year. The Police come under a lot of scrutiny in their jobs – their use of pepper spray, tasers, rape allegations etc. I’ve myself been a critic in several areas.
At the end of the day though one has to have an appreciation for the average officer. There are few others jobs where it is almost guaranteed that you will get assaulted on a regular basis. They deserve our thanks for the role they play.
