Technically speaking, 166 is dozens but that doesn't quite do it. I don't a buy a couple dozen eggs and end up with 166. I buy 166 eggs. Or at least more than 150. It's actually more than a dozen dozen. That's a lot of men and women who dies, leaving behind families and friends. Don't minimize the number- it's 166. That's not dozens.

Albemarle County Police Chief Colonel Steve Sellers said, "The people who made the ultimate sacrifice did so that we could live in a free society, and that we could have our constitutional rights protected, that we could have out standard equality of life protected."??????????

The remark above is just downright comical! Sellars is so out of touch with how his own troops act and behave out on the streets. You have no constitutional rights when some of his rookies pull you over.

God Bless all Law Enforcement Officers. Today should not be the only day we stop to honor those that protect our streets and do a job that many of us would choose not to do. Thank you to all the men and women that wear the badge.

Are you serious you're going to make a comment like that on a day when police officers remember those who have fallen. Here is a simple tip dont break the law and you wont be pulled over!!!! Remember the comment you made the next time ur in fear and need help from those "rookies that pull you over". Maybe you should go to DC next year and say this to a fallen Police Officer's wife and children.

Thanks for what you do and what many will never appreciate!!!!

There may be, just may, be some cops who approach law enforcement with a mature and worthwhile goal. But unfortunately for them there are a great many we read about all the time who should have never been given a badge, and with the blue line protecting them it is no wonder a great many honest citizens don't trust cops. The bad part? Many continue to be cops even after having been exposed in their nefarious exploits. Case in point, the cop who ran over the guyin a wheel chair on 4th and main, he still has a job, how do you justify that? You can't, thats just one case.
Well now

Get over yourself!!! It was an accident, not a criminal act. If this is considered a nefarious exploit then women should flee in terror for speaking their minds and cover their heads. We should implement the cutting off of hands for those that steal because that is kin to murder!! Gimme a break.

He didn't run anyone over. He bumped into him at a low speed and the wheel chair then went out of control and tipped over. Using the term "ran over" implies the car actually went over top of the guy. Not sure how that would rise to the level of putting an officer out of a job either.

Thank you to all you men and women that wear the badge and keep us safe!
