[Ed. – The attacks on them are an attack on us all.]
[P]olice officers around the nation, facing scrutiny by local, state, and federal officials, say morale is down in local departments. … And the homes of police officers have been vandalized while anti-law enforcement activists have watched them from outside. …
Police families find themselves hiding pro-law enforcement symbols that their families would ordinarily display on their vehicles and homes.
Even a police officer’s family dog was attacked by a suspect in Chicago last week, when the perpetrator saw the canine’s collar indicated it belonged to a law enforcement officer, according to WGN9.
“F— the police, I’ll kill all of them,” the suspect reportedly said as he picked up the dog by the leash with the choke collar digging into her throat until he was scared off by a nearby shopkeeper and ran off.
