Rob O’Donnell is a retired NYPD police officer and is currently a consultant for the Director of Public Safety in a town in Pennsylvania.
After the recent Florida airport shooting, the media were focusing on many different things, but everyone missed this detail. Expect for O’Donnell.
The courage of this officer!
Protecting all those people beneath him.
Here are more pictures of police protecting citizens.
During the shooting, 5 people were killed, 6 were wounded.
O’Donnell has seen a lot of cop-bashing and he wanted to make a point.
He told Independent Journal Review that as an NYPD homicide detective he attended “a dozen of my friends’ funerals after 9/11,” so he knows the gravity of the job and its sacrifices:
“My wife was 7 months pregnant when 9/11 took place, [she] begged me to come home because I said my goodbyes to her and my son. I did this to help strangers of all races, colors, and creeds.
This is what we do. Are we 100% perfect? Absolutely not. But because 0.02 step out of line, why are we all police the targets? This is exactly what the BLM and such are against: profiling. Why is that stereotype OK but the fact via the FBI, that a black male is 9 times more likely to commit a violent crime, and that his victim is most likely to be black, not?”
What are your thoughts on this?
