Blue Friday: It’s All About Fallen Police Officers
You know by now that we broadcasting live Friday morning from two different locations: DeNooyer Chevrolet on Wolf Road in Colonie, and Pizzeria Uno in Saratoga off of Exit 15 of the Northway. That's all well and good, but WHY do we continue to do this? What is it really all about?
It's about police officers killed in the line of duty. It's about the families of these officers who are left in terrible financial condition and even worse emotional devastation. They need support. The police officer in their family gave his/her life to protect us. We need to help support them in their time of need.
"Yea, but how many cops actually get killed? Not that many, right?" Wrong. Very wrong. If you have any question about that, click on the Officer Down Memorial website. This will bring it home for all of us.
There were 170 officers killed in 2011 alone. Need I say more? Please come on by and donate to this worthy cause. More information is available by going to our website .
