The Good Cops get ignored

This blog spends a lot of time pointing out the bad things some cops do.  We all know that most cops are honest, law-abiding people who are egregiously underpaid.  This cop is a hero. 
"He’s a hero, the traffic cop who was wrapping up an off-duty security gig at a Garland community center when two gunmen [homegrown jihadists set on attacking a ballroom full of people] rolled up in a black sedan.
He had his pistol and an unarmed partner. They had two assault rifles, extra ammo, body armor and the element of surprise.
But the Garland officer — whose name wasn’t released Monday — managed to help stop Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi before they ever got close to the ballroom with about 200 people at a contest for cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad."

We also rarely hear about officers who perish on the job. A young NYPD officer was shot in the head and perished.  RIP
