President Obama is seeking to cut the support of those who have already lost so much by half. I may be biased as a former law enforcement officer myself, but I believe that we do a great injustice to those who gave their lives to protect and serve the public when we cut the support of the families left behind after a line of duty death. These protections offer peace of mind to the people who protect and serve 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They know that their families will be protected should they be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice in service to the citizens of their community. What does it say when the citizens for whom that Officer died now allows that fallen Officer’s family to fail because he was not there to provide for them?
Don’t allow President Obama to add insult to injury by refusing to support a fallen Officer’s family. The law enforcement officers who laid down their lives for us deserve better than to allow this to happen to the families that were left behind. Call or write to your elected officials and tell them not the cut support to these families. They have lost enough already.
