Tomi Lahren Pays Tribute to Fallen Police Officers: 'A Hero Remembered Never Dies'
'The war on cops is real and it's abhorrent.'
TOMI LAHREN'S FINAL THOUGHTS COMMENTARIES ARE EXCLUSIVELY ON FOX NEWS INSIDER.
It’s time for Final Thoughts.
There are brave men and women in this country who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. They do it for little praise, and not enough money. Chances are you don’t know their names, and have rarely seen their photos.
I’m talking about our men and women in blue - our police, our troopers, our brave law enforcement officers.
Since the start of 2018, at least 11 officers have died across this country while on duty. Ten of them by gunfire. That’s too many deaths. And it’s been too many deaths for too many years now. Just the year before last, 2016, was one of the deadliest ever.
The war on cops is real. It’s abhorrent. And it’s still going on.
These brave Americans put it all on the line - and hold that line - for you, for me, for all of us. But unlike celebrities, athletes, politicians, and activists, they aren’t given enough attention in mainstream media headlines.
That changes, today.
Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering: We lost both officers on February 10th. They were responding to a domestic 911 hang-up call.
Officer Chase Maddox: He was just 26 years old when he was shot and killed on February 9. He leaves behind a young child - and his pregnant wife.

These brave men gave everything they had to protect and serve our communities. They didn’t do it for fame, for money, or for glory. They did it because they wanted to make our communities a little safer, a little better, a little more secure.
They aren’t alone. Over 750,000 sworn law enforcement officers put on that uniform and badge each and every day. They are the thin blue line. They are heroes. They are near and dear to my heart, and I hope they are near and dear to yours.
A hero remembered never dies. God Bless our law enforcement. God Bless America, and Take Care.
