Who Will Protect Us?  (by Dr. Tom Barrett)

     All across the nation today spouses of police officers are saying, "Honey, you have to quit. We need you." Children are saying, “Daddy, please don’t go to work today.” And many of the officers themselves, brave as they are, are thinking, “Is it worth it? I can’t provide for my family if I’m in a body bag.”

     As a former police officer myself, I can certainly understand the feelings of both the families and the officers. Twelve police officers were shot without warning, many in the back; five of them have died; and others are in critical condition. Police officers and their families certainly have reason to think seriously about their futures, especially in view of the rash of assassinations of police in the last year.
