Good afternoon. Please join us in praying for the speedy recovery of Officer Matt Pearce of Fort Worth PD. He was shot multiple times yesterday as he and other officers attempted to apprehend a wanted felon. The felon was shot and killed on scene by the other officers. We are a tight knit LEO family in the Fort Worth area and greatly appreciate all of the support from the community.
It seems that we don't go one day without hearing about another officer wounded or killed. Whether it be when they are on a call for service or just a random act of violence. It seems that a lot of the violence towards the police is fueled by the race-baters, the media and people in high-political positions. I would just like to say that the job is hard enough when you have to deal with whatever might come your way when you go to call or on a traffic stop. Now we have to deal with the more likelihood of being attacked just because we wear a badge. Just sayin'...
Be safe out there and hug a cop!
