This is an important entry by a wife of a cop in Moncton On where 3 RCMPNB were senselessly killed and 2 others injured by this single shooter. Who was at large for some time and parts of the community were in lockdown for many hours until the shooter was found.
It includes the emotional state of this woman as the incident took place, and includes her thoughts on the issue. And her thoughts are thoughts I share completely! The more people see and read this, the more this message will get out! So please read and share! We as a society have a responsibility to change how some view our police, and we need to let all those who serve that we support them, that it’s ok not to be ok!
