I’ve seen these words on many a police car. However something has been lost when those we have entrusted to protect and serve have become something to fear. It is so bad in some places that when police arrive on the scene people fear that someone will die. Even what was once a “routine” traffic stop has become a potential life or death scenario. The friendly officer on the beat has become the thug that will beat you into submission if he perceives your behavior as unacceptable or not in compliance to his definition of order. We have something wrong here folks. Something is very wrong when we fear the police more than the criminal.
