I would rather a law

I would rather a law enforcement officer make a grammatical error than any kind of mistake that makes the difference between life and death. You need to get off of your high horse and take a look at things from a different perspective.

First of all, law enforcement officers are human like everyone else. The biggest difference is that they have to make split-second decisions that affect the lives of others. And although they cannot afford to make mistakes in the field, I think a typo is rather forgivable.

Secondly, they risk their lives every time they put on their uniform and walk out the door. Most people, when they arrive at their place of work are safe. The police officers are not. They can be gunned down at any time by anyone. Officer Mitch Prince is a prime example of that.

Thirdly, unlike most people, these officers give up their holidays and time with family to be there for you and everyone else to make us all as safe as possible. While you were eating your hamburger and watching your fireworks yesterday and enjoying time with your family, these officers were on the job, in the heat to ensure that your time with your family was safe. And more likely than not, they have worked extra hours since last Friday and will continue to work extra hours through Sunday since the holiday fell in the middle of the week. And last weekend when we were in the air conditioning during the record heat, they were on the job.
