Most Americans go to work every morning knowing that the biggest hazard they may face on the job are perhaps mundane work issues of productivity, or perhaps worst yet an annoying customer or a difficult client.

However when a police officer straps on his bulletproof vest and puts on his uniform, he’s aware that the biggest hazard he faces, is losing his life, and nothing was more apparent than what has transpired within the last month of police officers being purposely targeted and gunned down, simply because they’re police officers.

And there’s little doubt that every police officer is keenly aware of the hazard they face especially within the environment of the Republican National Convention, in Cleveland.

Security no doubt is a major concern in keeping delegates, celebrities and keynote
Speakers safe, and that’s perhaps the issue facing every police officer, while their attention is focused on keeping the public safe, whose watching out for them?

Prompting the designated Republican Presidential nominee to post on Facebook; “We grieve for the officers killed in Baton Rouge today. How many law enforcement and people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country? We demand law and order.”

Which no doubt prompted Donald Trump to designate the first night of the convention to those brave first responders, paying tribute to their sacrifice and that thin buffer between a civil society of law and order, and the chaos and mayhem of anarchy.

Attendees gave Cleveland police a strong show of support:

They even gave these officers a standing ovation:

Hopefully the convention will not become another excuse by race hustlers for violence against the police and those in attendance.
