Two New York City Police Officers are shot and killed in brazen ambush. Man aimed empty gun in cop's face, pulled trigger. Authorities Say Police Officer Shot to Death In Florida Don't be surprised if the next officer you encounter seems a little less friendly, and a little more on edge. Don't be surprised if officers are less willing to let you approach them, and less tolerant for failing to stop promptly or moving around during traffic stops or putting your hands in your pockets. Folks, the bottom line is this: I have a family that I love beyond words. I will go home to them at the end of the shift. Because they are the reason I go to work. And that just may mean I'm not quite so nice to you or patient with you as I would have been yesterday, because some people have decided that they hate me because of the uniform I wear and the job I do. Three, and but for luck a fourth, officers' families have had Christmas forever ruined this week, simply because they went to work. I won't let that happen to mine.
