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.

    • Yes and We here are so proud that first our police was working with the schools and parents to take care of this matter and now the province of Nova Scotia has passed a legislation against cyber bullying which is superb. Now police will get powers to deal with these bullies and punish them. It is a big step. I agree these bullies should be crushed mercilessly. Take care my friend.

    • My friend thank you so much. Although I am Canadian but my blog stands to speak for the police forces of both Canada and United States. As you must have seen the combined flag of both these superb countries on my side bar. My articles carry the pictures and values of both the countries. Since I love them both as most of the Candians do. Anything good that takes place whether in Canada or US becomes part of my blog. My most blogger friends and followers are from US and Canada. I honor and respect them both. Thanks for a lovely comment and have a lovely long weekend my friend.
