Lessons From Philadelphia Lessons From Philadelphia 2019-08-15 00:00:00
Thank God that all six of the officers shot last night in Philadelphia appear not to be seriously injured. They were ambushed as they were attempting to serve a warrant. But the eight-hour standoff holds lessons relevant to all of us.
To begin with, it is a stark reminder of the danger the men and women of law enforcement face every day. Most of us get up and go to work every day never thinking for even a second that we might get shot on the job. But every day police officers put their lives in extreme danger so we can enjoy that peace of mind.
