"I am a police officer in Florida, and I am humbled to walk in the footsteps of so many brave men and women who have come before me. To all of you stay safe and always remember why you do what you do. We all have people who love us and want us home safe every night. Remember to never leave mad, always tell them you love them and watch out for eachother."
