“Easy is the way down to the underworld:

by night and by day dark Hades‘ door stands open;

but to retrace one’s step and to make a way out to the upper air,

that’s the task, that is the labor.”

(Virgil, Aeneid Bk. 6, 1.126)

Leveler is the person who advocates the abolition of social inequalities. Also the concept of a leveler is correlated to a person or a thing that levels.

Let us appraise the role of the Police Officer in the light of the one who takes care of the social injustices to deliver justice to people and the one who stands up and fights for the innocent, who are least aware of the dangers lying in wait around them. Law breakers and criminal organizations are too well equipped to hurt the common person. The Police Officer positions himself between the innocent and the criminal since he has the knowledge, wisdom, a determined spirit and implements to gain power over the criminals. As a great leveler, the Police Officer does not let the balance of justice to tip down in favor of the criminals. His aim and motivation to do this is solely for the reason so that the innocents can live peacefully and in safety and security, in his fortification. This is the strongest and the most valid reason for any society to protect and safeguard the police officers, since our very life depends on them.

Man has always struggled against the forces of evil that enslave him. Crime is such a force that a man of understanding has dreaded and feared the most. Crime and its impact do not discriminate between an ordinary citizen or a statesman, priest or a scoundrel, brave or a coward. In one way or the other it hurts them all. When crime invades, the shackles of fear enslave the innocent person’s mind. In such a state, his dignity and pride is crushed by unfair people who with tyranny put an immense nervous or fearful feeling of uncertain agitation in his mind. These unmerited criminals put profit before dignity. These people of crime know no benevolence and they crush the human spirit to dust. Dreams of heaven turn into nightmares of hell. Fear gives into desperateness. In such a state  of last obliteration a brave and mighty figure rises on the horizon and says the words, “Enough. Nobody must dare to move. I am the Police Officer and I am the Law. You may also call me the Leveler because I compensate the weakness of the innocent people with my divine strength and knowledge.”

My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.
