Police were heroes and the public loved them. Today they have to wear body armor and erect fences and barricades to protect themselves from the people they were sworn to protect.

Like when they drove tanks through Somerville and marched families with children out of their homes at gunpoint trying to get the guy only to miss him completely and find out hours later that they were in the wrong neighborhood? That kind of heroes?

Who said anything about being scared? Being prepared is a virtue.
