Today’s read is from Newstalk 1130 WISN talk show host Mark Belling. Here’s an excerpt, followed by a link to the entire piece.

You literally put your life on the line while going into the highest-crime neighborhoods we have to try to keep the people who live there safe. You step into the ugliest domes-tic situations imaginable, try to defuse them and protect victims who were violently attacked. You put your life on the line every time you have to chase somebody driving a stolen car 90 miles per hour through residential neighbor-hoods. You get insulted and cursed by 15-year-olds who know there is almost nothing they can do that will get them jailed. You are ordered by your bosses to harass citizens who try to go to church or eat a sandwich in a restaurant parking lot, angering the very people who most support you. You are occasionally shot at.

There’s plenty more.
