    There are dedicated, compassionate, dependable, ethical and professional law enforcement officers (LEOs) who run to the gunshots to protect and defend innocents from harm. These LEOs, not the small number of corrupt ones, MUST BE HONORED as we would honor our men and women who serve or have honorably served in the U.S. military. The war with evil, for now, is constant and danger is ever present. God bless officer Jeff Pelle, his family, and his colleagues – your sacrifice was not in vein – for you saved others from certain death.
