I’m glad I could join a new women’s group who brought lunch to a Chicago Police Station on Friday. We were lucky to express our gratitude to the 75 police officers and staff who protect the city.
While police forces across the country have some bad cops who should be removed, the vast majority of officers are willing to die for our security. They’re brave, strong, kind and rational. In Chicago, they’re working 12 hour shifts every single day with no days off since May. They’re getting sworn at, insulted, beaten, and targeted weekend after weekend and often every day of the week.
It was a great chance to meet some wonderful people and to show thanks and support, which doesn’t come through when rioters are making havoc as they did again last night.
