Why do police officers put their lives on the line every day? Why do they agree to put this huge target on their backs?
Because God created them this way. They care about having a safe community for you and me and their loved ones to live in. A safe place for our children to play in. A place to live where we don’t have to be afraid.
And Police officers are willing to do something about it. My son, David Glasser, was a Phoenix Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty on May 18, 2016. Davey didn’t talk about work very often but, when he did, the courage and commitment it took for him to do his job amazed me. Davey received several commendations for recognizing child abuse on calls where it was being covered up by the adults involved. I remember one specifically was an infant. But he never smiled about these commendations because the evil reality he dealt with in these situations was nothing to smile about.
Are there bad cops? Sure. Just like there are bad pastors, bad teachers and bad parents.
But the majority of Police Officers really care about right and wrong. They genuinely care about protecting and serving and they prove it every day by stepping out to face the evil darkness of this world.
Then why do Police Officers get such a huge amount of bad press?
This is a clear sign of how hard Satan and his team is working in our confused and ‘follow the crowd’ world. Yes, we have a lot of information readily at our fingertips today – a lot of incorrect information.
Police officers are very easy targets for people who don’t have any idea of what really happens out there when officers are face-to-face with murderers, drug dealers and psychopaths. Police officers courageously face the danger of dealing with these criminals in an effort to stop them from hurting other people.
I read in God’s word about the guardian angels he sends to protect us and fight our battles for us.
It’s obvious that a lot of our guardian angels wear police uniforms.
Miss you, Davey.
