Greta: 'Shouldn't We Have a Rally Celebrating the Heroism of So Many Great Cops?'
With all the focus in Chicago and across much of the country on bad police conduct, we should take the time to salute all of our country's brave, heroic law enforcement officers, Greta Van Susteren said in her "Off the Record" commentary tonight.
Greta pointed to San Bernardino Sheriff's Det. Jorge Lozano, who told people during the San Bernardino terror attack, "I'll take a bullet before you do."
On Tuesday, Lozano spoke for the first time about the moment at a news conference of first responders to the attack.
He said he knew that the people he was responsible for were relying on him for comfort and calm, so he provided it.
"It's nothing short of what any other person in law enforcement would do. I don't feel like a hero whatsoever," Lozano said. "That's our job to put ourselves in the line of danger to protect the community."
Greta said that it's not just Lozano's heroism that is amazing, but also his understated, humble reaction to it.
"So tonight, as we are all glued to the TV, watching Chicago protests stemming from bad police conduct, think about this: To be fair and balanced to the police, shouldn't we have a rally celebrating the heroism of so many great cops like Det. Lozano?" Greta said.
