Blessed to have up­stand­ing po­lice of­fi­cers

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I con­sider my­self an av­er­age cit­i­zen, but as ev­ery day passes, I can’t be­lieve how some peo­ple think that our men in blue are thugs or worse.

I hap­pen to live along­side a Charles County po­lice­man. He is def­i­nitely not a thug or some­one to fear. He is not only an as­set to our neigh­bor­hood, but a man who takes time to cut my grass on the hottest days and plows my drive­way in sub-freez­ing weather. He does all that be­cause he heard I was sick. I have a very large front yard. In the sum­mer, John has a side job, cut­ting grass in the sum­mer and plow­ing snow in the win­ter. He al­ways seems to be work­ing. He is a great fa­ther and fam­ily man. He acts like I’m in­sult­ing him if I of­fer to pay him.

Charles County is lucky to have him and his two broth­ers as po­lice of­fi­cers. His wife is also em­ployed by Charles County as a county teacher. We are truly blessed to have fam­i­lies like this in our county. How dare any­body say any­thing neg­a­tive about our men in blue. My hat is off to them and their fam­i­lies. God bless the Kelly fam­ily and all of the oth­ers who leave home to pro­tect us and our fam­i­lies, not know­ing if they will come home to theirs safely. Brent Aaron, La Plata
