Cream of crop
I feel constrained to write a few words in defense of our FBI, ATF and all other law officers, especially at this time when they have had such a long period of intense service to the community and the surrounding area of the Waco metroplex.
Following the activities of the Davidian compound has made me have a greater respect for these men. They seem to be the cream of the crop, so to speak, in appearance, demeanor, qualifications and education. I have been so favorably impressed with their handling of a difficult situation. They should make us proud to be Americans.
With the unexpected turn of events April 19, I felt sorrow for them, as well as for all concerned people. Besides the heretofore mentioned officers, I will say I was well impressed with the new attorney general, Janet Reno. She has handled herself and the situation so well, in my opinion. I am grieved so many with 20-20 hindsight are so ready to show negative feelings about her decision.
These public servants need our encouragement. What would we do without them? I would not want their jobs, but I am thankful that they have chosen the profession. Let’s rally behind them for a final resolution of this tragic happening, so they will have the courage to come to our assistance when the next crisis occurs.
