Police officers have faced a wide range of events in their careers that have been or could have been very traumatic to them.
These events can have a real long-lasting effect on their lives.
Officers are already at risk on a daily basis given the nature of the job, but in some cities, they face even greater dangers now.
Ron Meuser, an employment lawyer in Minneapolis said for many of the officers just broke whenever they were abandoned by politicians and administration.
“The reality is that these officers — most of these officers have been working for 15, 20, 25 years within the department,” Meuser said in an exclusive with DailyCaller, “And during the course of their careers, they have been exposed to literally hundreds of what we call ‘traumatic incidents’ known as criteria A events. So, this may be suicides, murders, stabbings, shootings, infant deaths, sexual abuse, whatever it is that these officers have been exposed to over the years.”
Meuser added, “they’ve all been to generally muscle up and deal with it, cope with it in their own way, in order to get up each day and go out and serve their community.”
Meuser said that the riots that followed the death of George Floyd was "the straw that broke the camel's back."
Officers were able to choke down the horrors they've witnessed because they knew they were doing the right thing and serving their community. What they're facing now is not unlike the treatment the men who served in Vietnam faced upon their return. History will tell you how that lack of support and villainization of those soldiers affected their lives.
Meuser told a heartbreaking inside story of what happened to many of the officers that were abandoned inside the 3rd Precinct after politicians willingly handed it over to the angry mob:
“Several of my officers who we’ve been retained literally wrote texts to their loved ones indicating they did not feel that they were going to get out. They literally said their goodbyes.”
The officers were so sure that they would not survive that they began recording what was happening. Meuser said that it's “so that individuals would later find out what happened to them when they were deceased.”
I can understand why the officers would file for disability for PTSD.
We've got to admit that our government, mostly on a local level, has failed our officers.
