I am so very proud tonight to be a member of the law enforcement community. I spent 30 years of my life in law enforcement and the performance of the officers of the numerous agencies involved in the investigation of this terrorist attack was the best of America. I was touched by the citizens who applauded their law enforcement and other first responders. I guarantee that this is the highlight of these officers careers. It was an emotional scene that I shared with my law enforcement brothers and sisters. They are the best of America and they proved it beginning on Monday.
Remember that Sean Collier gave his life in the performance of his duties and another officer fights for his life. In my career, I knew that any of my fellow officers would have done the same. We became law enforcements officers with the intention of taking care of our fellow citizens.
These officers did this. They deserve the appreciation of all of us. God rest his soul.
