I met officer Jason Moszer as I was passing through Fargo. I too am a police veteran and a military veteran. He was checking out something at that Motel 6, right off the freeway, and I was just checking out. We talked in the parking lot. I could tell he was a good cop and proud to be one. He had a swagger and a positive attitude. He was in plain clothes and driving an unmarked sports car. I introduced myself and asked about crime in Fargo. He said it wasn't bad, but it was getting worse as the city grew.

Next I heard of Jason I was scrolling through the front page national news and their was his picture "Officer Down". I talked to my students that day about having met him and that he was a hero.
I was teaching right near Minneapolis at the time, one of the epicenters of the BLM, "fry'em like bacon" marches and it had been wrongly effecting my students minds. I think Jason's heroism helped them see the real picture that day. God Bless him and his family!
