This scourge hasn't hit Houston, yet. I'm not a cop, so I don't play by the cops rules. Let me see someone do this to my fellow Keeper of the Oath. I stand with the blue line.

Thank you, LEO's for your service.

This is worse than first reported. This was a Islamist Jihadist attack. The 25 year old Officer had the axe buried in his skull. This anti-L.E. POTUS, A.G., NY Governor, & Mayor are disgraceful & will not call it for what it is, Terrorism.
All Officers be careful out there as they have called for Lone Wolf attacks on all of you throughout America. May god be with you all.

Amen, TheRookie. The day has come when we have to look out for each other.

And LEO's, Thank You For Your Service. I got your back.
