I have a son who is a deputy. And he puts his life on the line every single day he walks out his door. I pray for him. A lot! I pray for all police officers. It is a thankless job and that makes me so sad. When a police officer is doing their job; they are damned. If they don't do their jobs; they are damned. Just like any job, anywhere, there are good people and there are bad people. There are bad doctors. There are bad lawyers. There are bad nurses and teachers and you see what I mean. It is time for this country to quit lumping them all together. When I am in trouble or in fear for my life I want it to be a police officer who comes to my rescue.

I believe that people have the right to protest. I believe that people have the right to not agree. But nothing will ever change the feelings that Americans have about honest, law-abiding citizens protesting if it is done in the manner it was last night in Ferguson, Missouri. Shame on all of you who participated.
