Safe At Home

On September 3, 2005 I posted a message about four Saint Joseph, Missouri Police Officers that volunteered to go to New Orleans to help Katrina's victims,"Admire Their Courage". An article in today's St. Joseph News-Press tells that the four officers have made it home with no problems. The article tells about some of the things they saw while they were in New Orleans. I don't think it was quite what they had expected, "A man parking a pickup in Louisiana last week had this to say about four St. Joseph Police Department officers who volunteered to help in New Orleans. "We sure do appreciate what you're doing, but you're really crazy for going down there," Detective Gary Murphy recalled." I've read some articles and heard news reports about law enforcement officers from other parts of the country that volunteered to help. I've heard some of them were no better than the thugs and looters they were supposed to protect the citizens from. I'm happy to hear that these four officers did a good job of representing Saint Joseph, Missouri while they were in the New Orleans area. Thank God they made it home safely.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I am glad we have people who will help others out in a time of need. I am proud of these people who represent the state of Missouri and the United States very well.
