On the way home from Ontario, Roy stopped for a burger and gas when he ran into a young OPP officer who was pumping gas. Roy thanked the officer for putting on the uniform every day and protecting us. He was very appreciative. They talked for a few minutes about many things including Nuit Blanche in Toronto, during which a mob injured several police officers. The officer was really disturbed about that and said fellow officers on the force were talking about it. Meanwhile, in Hartford, CT, a police officer was shouted at by a Dunkin Donuts employee after saying “Guess he hasn’t heard. We don’t serve cops here anymore.” Police will be receiving increased attention as the second degree murder trial of Toronto police Constable James Forcillo in the shooting of teenager Sammy Yatim begins next Tuesday.
However, the times police step up and help are so often unreported. #ThankACop. Are you up for it?
