Over the years we've worked with Dallas police officers and Dallas SWAT in our shows. They have happily and openly shared their expertise and training with us. They are among the best in the world.
God bless you all, who run toward the sound of gunfire. My heart, and the hearts of all of us on the team here, goes out to the families of the slain, to their fellow officers who have lost brothers.
I have said repeated, and publicly, that when any group or groups of people continually chum the water for monsters, eventually those monsters will come. After 8 years of cynical, viciously divisive rhetoric and a bizarre, almost psychotic, campaign to de-legitimize the authority of law enforcement officers, we are a nation as divided in those years before the Civil War, or in those dark days of the late 1960s.
So very many of my police friends are out there today as every day, on patrol, investigating crimes, protecting us, the public. Watch your six, my friends.
