There's a lot of sentiment out there regarding reducing the number of Police officers in our community. Here at Thin Line News we know that this is a terrible idea.
This story is a perfect example of that! Without the resources and manpower to hold the line, the innocent will suffer.
On August 25, 2020 Police officers in Massachusetts rescued a 5 year old girl:
The girl, identified as Cecilia, was on a small raft when a gust of wind blew her 300 to 400 yards from Preston Beach in Swampscott around 2:50 p.m., the town’s police department said in a Facebook post.Source: https://www.police1.com/police-heroes/articles/mass-police-help-rescue-5-year-old-swept-out-to-sea-MVPYllYeNJFeqKN7/
Reportedly, her father was unable to reach her due to winds and current and also had to be rescued.
All in all, the heroes in Massachusetts held the line and made sure Cecelia and her father went home safely.
This is but one example of many where Police officers SAVE lives. Indeed, that is their calling...
