Just a reminder to people in our "enlightened city" of Ithaca that our officers are out there every day and put their lives on the line for everyone. This is the second officer killed in the last few days in CNY. It was almost 10 years ago that Inv. Padula was killed here in Ithaca. It can happen anywhere at any time. I hope people remember this when they deal with police, in Ithaca or anywhere. They are given more grief and little praise, but still go out their every day and night and do their jobs. I don't know of any officers that took their job for praise, but rather an underlying desire to make this city a better place. I am sick of reading or hearing people complain about the police. My prayers go out to the immediate families of both of these dedicated public servants and to their extended law enforcement families. Remember these recent pointless killings the next time you get angry because you have a "negative" dealing with police. They are the ones out there to protect and help make this a safter place. If you don't want to have to deal with them in a "negative" way, don't break the law!
