I am so very, very sorry that this terrible tragedy has occurred. As a Mother of a Phila. Police Officer, this disturbs me in more ways than you can imagine. I've lived in Philadelphia all my life, and I know the area. Times have changed since I was young, noone feels safe without the knowledge that, yes, we have Police Men and Women here to protect and serve. And, now, one less Officer. And one of the best. A Brave hero who will never be forgotten. God Bless you, Sir and Thank you so much for doing what you did yesterday !!
