I commented somewhere recently that while I do sometimes post stories of what seems like bad judgement by a handful of police officers, I don’t hate cops. One of my best friends was a police officer for two decades.
I know there are great cops in the world. And just to prove it, here’s one now.
A New York City police officers’ Facebook post from Sunday, wherein he shares the pic above and the message below, has gone viral.
Going only by “Big Fat Loser,” (the officer chronicles his weight loss on the account), he writes:
I’ll be out there working at Pridefest today wearing this shirt under my uniform for a lot of reasons.
For my step brother.
For my priest.
For my aunts who died before they could be legally married.
For my cousin.
For all of the cops I have worked with over the years, including one of the best partner’s I’ve ever shared a sector car with.
For my classmate in High School who’s parents made him sleep in a tent in his yard.
For the man who cried on my shoulder about losing his partner on 9/11.
For every call I went to where someone got kicked out of their house or who’s family just didn’t understand.
For anyone who’s had to hide who they are.
I’ve got your back.
Love is Love.
