Keep them safe

According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, line of duty deaths for peace officers have increased 6 percent this year.

There have been 49 gunfire deaths, up 17 percent from last year.

Sometimes the offenders in these crimes are caught and prosecuted. However, they also don't always serve their full sentence. Sometimes these cop killers get put back on the streets.

On Tuesday, October 12, 1976, Larchmont Police Officer Arthur DeMatte attempted to remove Blanks from the railroad tracks. Blanks disregarded the officer and in the ensuing struggle disarmed and murdered Officer DeMatte with the officer's own weapon.

The Officer Down Memorial Page is asking for people to send letters to the parole board to keep this cop killer from getting back on the streets.

Visit to send a letter of your own.

Let's keep our officers safe and show that those who hurt them should pay the price.
