Chuck Norris: THIS Is Why We Should Honor Law Enforcement Officers This Christmas

We recognize and greatly appreciate that we have a military force of men and women willing to die to protect us and our freedoms, but in his World Net Daily column, martial artist and U.S. Air Force veteran Chuck Norris reminds us they have an armed force of 1 million here at home sworn to serve and protect us in our daily lives.

Chuck pays tribute to Detective Jorge Lozano, who in the midst of the San Bernardino massacre, led victims to safety and was captured on video saying, “I’ll take a bullet before you do."

Chuck then provides sobering statistics of just how many law enforcement officers have taken a bullet for us, both literally and metaphorically, with 126 men and women in uniform killed in 2014 — a 24 percent increase over the previous year.

And on average, the men and women who died in 2013 were not rookies on the force but averaged 39 years old with 13 years of law enforcement service.

As an honorary Texas Ranger and the husband of a former correctional corporal and reserve deputy sheriff, Chuck describes himself as "very pro-law enforcement." He acknowledges that there are corrupt cops but thinks it's crazy that the mainstream media focuses on them when the vast majority are 'upstanding, law-abiding and courageous." He points out that since records started being kept in 1791, over 20,000 law enforcement officers have laid down their lives in the line of duty.

Chuck wants us to remember those sacrifices this Christmas and paraphrases John 15:13, saying “Greater love has no one than this: that one lay down his life for another.”
