Solidarity

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I was talking only yesterday about deaths around Christmas time seeming so much worse than during the rest of the year.

The family of a New York Cop will be feeling the same right now after they buried Detective Peter Figoski, a 22-year- veteran with the NYPD after he was shot in the face during a robbery last week. He leaves behind four daughters aged 14 to 20.

More than 10,000 officers attended the service. I wouldn’t normally recommend reading the Daily Fail, but check out their article and see the amazing photos from the service. Say what you like about the Yanks, they know how to honour their dead.

Rest in peace detective Fogoski.

    Ah yes, a country that knows how to honour a fallen officer.

    You wouldn’t have seen the same story in the Fail if it had been a British Officer.

    The Fail is probably the most corrupt, innaccurate rag I have ever read!

    The editor is a disgrace to journalism and a total Cnut!

    Wow. What a tribute to a fallen officer. Is the killer facing the death penalty? If not, he should be.

    Solidarity is right. Just imagine the message that goes out to criminals when they see a turnout like that for one officer. That`s what you call backup.

    And for them it`s as natural a thing as breathing. Pride and honour. It doesn`t just come from inside the ranks either, it comes from the top down and, most importantly, from the outside support of the law-abiding civilian population.

    Even their postal workers have got it.

    One area in which we as a country could learn from the Americans.
