Here’s One You Probably Haven’t Heard

June 20, 2008

As I stated in a previous post, I am bi-vocational. My “other” job is as an instructor at the NC Justice Academy.

I have been a sworn law enforcement officer for almost 25 years. With that disclaimer in place – I continue . . .

There are a lot of things which have been said about Barack Obama some are untrue and others are, at best, unsubstantiated. This is one thing about him you probably haven’t heard.

When he was in Portland, OR shortly after Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day, he drew a large crowd. Whenever a large crowd is expected there is a need for Porta-Johns. In this instance those portable toilets were set up on the Law Enforcement Memorial, at the base of the flagpole.

Folks, this is at best an act of ignorance and at worst blatant disrespect for the family of those officers who gave their life and those who are willing to put theirs on the line. The photo was taken by one of those officers who were there to ensure the safety of Mr. Obama and those attending his rally.

Within the past week we have lost two officers in North Carolina. My heart goes out to their loved ones, and to think that a toilet would be set up on a monument to honor their sacrifice is unfathomable.
