Greta: Murder of Rookie Cop Is a Reminder of Sacrifices Law Enforcement Make
In her "Off The Record" commentary tonight, Greta Van Susteren reacted to the tragic death of Ashley Guindon, a rookie police officer in Virginia who was shot to death on her first day on the job.
Guindon, who served with the Prince William County Police Department, was killed while responding to a domestic disturbance. Two of her fellow officers were also shot and injured.
Greta said that the horrific murder is a reminder of the immense risks and sacrifices that all the brave men and women in law enforcement make.
She said that words are inadequate, but she asked viewers for a favor: share Guindon's story with others, so her sacrifice and those of other law enforcement offcers' will be remembered.
"They put their lives on the line to protect us," Greta said. "Officer Guindon, like so many others, made that ultimate sacrifice. Her name will now be etched on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial with more than 20,000 others, other fallen officers."
