This weekend I was reminded as to exactly why I started "Blue Friday" so many years ago. It is a reminder I wish I never had, and my heart goes out to Sergeant French of the Troy Police Department , his family and friends and hope for a full and quick recovery.
It reads like the opening scene in a movie. A routine police stop in an instant becomes a deadly situation, leaving a police officer wounded and a suspect dead. The horrific scene that happened Sunday morning in Troy is a not so gentile reminder that the dangers that come with being a police officer are very real and potentially only a moment away.
