  1. Now the cop will be called a “hero”. Rediculious! Everytime time something happens to one of them they get instant status of hero? That’s their job & they get paid with tax dollars to do it. They chose that profession. Nobody forced them into it.

  2. Although, they are chosing this job..they don’t intend to get shot at even though they know the risk is there in doing so. We all take jobs and have parts that we don’t like and wish wasn’t a part of it. But, someone whom is risking their life, whether their job or not for the benefit and welfare of others, society at large should have an honorable mention.
