If you are AGAINST helping police officers disable din the Line of Duty are you also against helping war veterans? Why do you want to exclude injured police officers? Does an alarm company make your Lexus payment? Vote to help officers hurt serving the public. If not, explain why not and don't say money when this body has wasted BILLIONS and already covers ALL State officers.
