    I am thankful for our law enforcement officers. They have the worst pay out there! There life is on the line every minute of the day! And they have family, loved ones and friends who care about them. They get out there and work their a_ _ off during rain, hell, sleet & snow, so you and I can have a safer place to live and work. Next time you get a chance, thank those officers who keep our community safe! I commend officer Bryant for his actions and saving the life of a citizen. It is obvious her safety was a great concern of his. I think it is a shame that our paper and news didn’t recognize that Officer Bryant saved her life. We always tend to hear only the bad and the negative! Great job Chad! Being a veteran officer, Chad knew what he needed to do and he did it! Everyone is so quick to judge, until it happens to you, you do not know what you would do!!!! Hats off to all the officers involved, including the off duty officer. Thank God no one was seriously injured!
