Many US police officers have been murdered in the service of their country and they are the heroes

It has been a disappointment in recent days to note how easily the MSM (mainstream media) have perpetuated the myth that George Floyd was killed by the ‘police’ in Minnesota.

If in the course of time and legal process it is proved that he was unlawfully killed it will have been by an individual/s and not an organisation.

To accept otherwise is to tarnish the vast majority of officers who serve the public without hesitation, or as it appears, much thanks.

To continue this error simply plays into the hands of those with maleficent agenda.

What happened to Mr Floyd was wrong but care needs to be taken in how and upon who we attribute the label of hero.

Many officers have been murdered in service to the citizens of America regardless of racial identity.

They are the real heroes.
