Heroes are right here

Re: “Where are the heroes?” Letters, Aug. 30 – Sept. 5.

As a retired cop, I take offence to the letter writer’s comments. I urge the writer to sit with any one of the men and women who police our communities and listen to what they have to deal with on a typical shift. Better yet, if you can put your fears aside for a few hours, go for a ride along and you’ll quickly find that Mason Street is probably not so bad after all. By the way, if your bike ever gets stolen, watch out. It may be returned to you by a hero driving one of those police SUV’s.
