I want to read the whole story.

Who’s the POS? I gather because we haven’t heard, he’s not white..

Playing the game, "Guess the POS" is getting too easy these days:

Prayers for the officer.

Okay, Blue Lives Matter. If the victim officer in this article was a man, would your headline read "Male Officer Stabbed in Neck"? No, I didn't think so. The opening statwmeny, "A Hartford police officer has been stabbed in the neck." is what it should read. I served, and served with amazing women who were just as competent as their male counter parts. That is why Policeman was changed to Police Officer. Isn't it time to quit this differentiating attitude? Yes, it IS!

Prayers and hope going out to my sibling in blue for a full and rapid recovery. 👮💙
