Coward takes the lives of innocents

The shocking events of today that saw the taking of two young girls lives by a coward puts into perspective the day-to-day bravery of Police officers.

Last Sunday morning two young female police officers were in our street knocking on doors to ask if anyone had seen anything the night before as one of the houses had been burgled. Didn’t think much of it at the time, why would I? Why would they? After all they were just routine enquiries in a safe enough environment, weren’t they? But then again, how do you know if some coward with a screw loose, that lacks any decency is not going to attack you? Which is exactly what transpired today in the most brutal and costly of ways.

The moment the story broke today it brought back memories of those young police girls I spoke with, both were in the same age bracket as those shot and thinking back with respect, quite vulnerable to being attacked. Police officers go into these situations not only not knowing what to expect but with little protection. They put themselves at high risk with only their bravery as a shield. That courage deserves our utmost respect. We all need to acknowledge their bravery, whilst also valuing and supporting them far more than we do.
