Friday May 15th is Police Memorial Day set aside to honor all Law Enforcement Officers who died or were disabled while in the line of duty.

This is a thread to honor all the LEO's that given their lives in the performance of their duties.

What this thread is not it is not for bashing. If you feel the need to bash a LEO then please start your own thread as your negative opinions are not welcome here.

Law Enforcement Officers that die or are disabled in the line of duty deserve the same respect as military service personnel that die or are disabled in the line of duty.

Wow! A thread 2 years old that is very Noble in purpose and only has the OP and 2 replies. Un - Freaking - believable!:confused:

Thank You!

For those who have died in the line of duty.:( A sincere Thank you, and may you be kept safe and respected on the other side.
