Lakewood Shooting

My heart goes out to the families of the four police officers that were affected by the shooting this morning at the local coffee shop in the city of Lakewood. To read more about the updated story click here

It is heartbreaking for an incident like this to occur, especially after Thanksgiving, and after the first incident that happened on Halloween. It is so difficult for me to understand why these things happen and how people have so much hatred that they are willing to take lives.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about certain roles in society. I think that it’s important for all of us to realize, myself included, that aside from our job, we are people. We are human. We are not just consumed by our job and we have lives.

In high school, a lot of the douche bag boys would always say, “eff the police.” This line usually came after a party got broken up, someone got a ticket, MIP… whatever. The only reason people say it is because they got caught. You knew you were doing something wrong. You got caught for it because you weren’t smart enough and now you’re getting punished. Stop being so ignorant. Police officers aren’t out to always punish you. Sometimes I think this is where this type of hatred is introduced . Police officers protect our community and keep us safe. I would never choose to live in fear and terror. Just for a second. Think what life would be like if we weren’t always guaranteed safety.

You can’t assume that you know anyone’s history or background. These police officers have families, kids, wives, husbands, parents… it’s selfish for someone to want to take another person away from their family.
