In the last 10 years 1500 members of law enforcement lost their lives in service to the people. Yet, the hard left is targeting them with distortions and lies. It is a hallmark of the left to undermine the institutions of a nation. They have done so with marriage, family, the military in the Vietnam era, the CIA, business, the Church, and now is the time for law enforcement again. We stood up to them when the anti-war crowd had elements who wanted to be anti-troop. We need to do the same to the hate the cops and we want them dead crowd. We need to rally to show support for that thin blue line between order and disorder. I strongly support law enforcement, but I especially support local law enforcement that is accountable to the people themselves. That is why I support a constitutional sheriff, and that is why I consistently oppose changing the almost 100 year old Dover charter to take the police away from reporting to the elected Mayor. I believe the people need to be able to hold people to account for good behavior or bad. That is our protection from a police state. America has done very well though not perfectly with that ethos. Whether or not you agree with my philosophy of local law enforcement, most of you will agree that we need to support our men and women in blue during these troubled times. Law enforcement need not be perfect for us to support the good work done day in and day out. When we find bad apples, we need to remove them. The part that is often forgotten is that when we see good ones, we need to appreciate them. We have a cultural problem of taking people who do the right thing for granted. Sunday, January 4, 2015, we will no longer take the fine men and women of our local law enforcement community for granted. The 9-12 Delaware Patriots are sponsors of a rally to support the men and women in blue. This is not a 9/12 rally, it is a citizen rally. You do not need to be a member or supporter of that fine organization to participate. You just need to desire to support your local police. The rally will be across from the Dover Mall from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You do not need to attend all three hours.Update: Due to rain, the event has been moved to Saturday the 10th.
