Brave people, these cops.

Yet there are "patriots" who want to make this work even more dangerous for them. Witness the insane attempt in Indian recently to invoke the "self defense" laws that would allow citizens to open fire legally on police if the believe the police are "violating the citizen's Constitutional rights."

Closely related to the "Stand Your Ground" laws, this insanity is being pushed by none other than the National Rifle Association and sundry other extreme right-wing nut cases.

Just what we all need, isn't it?

And that is going to be one of the primary defenses used to try to get Matthew Sheppard off the hook in Ogden.

Certainly something for responsible people to consider carefully.

Well done, officers!

Thank you for your hard, dangerous, but rewarding work to protect us from the criminals amongst us.

For them to do their work, they need the proper equipment and training. When police budgets are cut, brave people like these are some of those left in a more dangerous position.
