What about the ones who do their job? They are not heroes? A cop or firefighter who does their job could have taken another job just like everyone else so they would not have to place their life in jeopardy to save a stranger's life.<quoted text>
Didn't we all recently read about countless cops and firefighters who were putting in phoney claims about being injured during the 911 mess? Didn't we read how some who were putting in claims weren't even at the site? Yes, we did. And, didn't we all read about the squabbling that took place right after the 911 tragedy, between the cops and the firefighters regarding who were the bigger heroes during the aftermath? Yes, we did.
And, didn't we all hear that immediately after Huricane Katrina hit New Orleans, roughly 1/3 the police force simply walked off their job? Some cops were caught joining in the looting that took place.
And, the riots that hit Los Angelos after the Rodney King mess hit the fan had the LAPD running scared and not doing their jobs. Many honest shopowners and homeowners had to literally sit armed on their rooftops because the LAPD had apparently run off with their tail between their legs.
None of the above points towards heroic actions or heroic behavior during national tragedies...
Sorry Lynch but you have to get over being so envious and jealous of the public safety.
