Philadelphia Police Heroism Watch

There are also good and brave and honest cops in the city, and it should be acknowledged that they do have a dangerous job:

A Philadelphia Police Officer was shot overnight during a chase in North Philadelphia, according to police.

Officer Kevin Gorman was treated for a gunshot to the shoulder at Temple University Hospital and released about 5 a.m. today, according to Police Officer Christine O'Brien.

Gorman was wounded on the 3300 block of N. Howard Street in North Philadelphia.  He is a 3 and 1/2 year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department.

How come whenever you hear of a Philadelphia Police Officer in the news they are either being shot or arrested? We need better cops. I come home late at night from work. I see at least 3-4 patrol cars "hiding" in the same spots each night. When I was young cops were mostly "good guys". Now they are mostly arrogant thugs that are usually worse human beings than the people they are arresting.
