An Orange County City (USA) Firefighter and Paramedic Caroline Dorton returns to work having been off for 18-months following a brutal and savage attack by an individual who had just murdered his wife and two children. Ms Dorton arrived on the scene as the attacker, 30-year-old Henry Brown, had just finished attacking his wife.
This tragic event highlights that, regardless of where in the world you serve, the threat is just the same. Time and time again, our brave emergency service personnel are willing to put themselves directly into harm’s way in order to try and save the life of a complete stranger.
This is why emergency services personnel deserve more pay. This is why emergency services personnel deserve better working conditions. This is why emergency services personnel reflect the best of humanity, and why they should be revered and held in the highest esteem by the Authorities which they work for.
It doesn’t matter how deep certain people want to bury their heads in the sands of naivety; evil DOES exist, and we owe it to our emergency services oppos to do as much as we can to keep them safe from the evil that most people will never encounter.
Caroline Dorton suffered horrendous injuries in the execution of her job. Attacked by a evil man consumed by hate and violence.
To all those individuals who somehow believe that EVERY criminal just needs a cuddle and a hug, then you should be putting yourselves in the shoes of every man and woman who dons their uniform without knowing what the shift may bring, or even if they will make it home at the end of their shift.
After one shift on the job, doubters will quickly realise that there are people out there who choose to be the sort of person that the majority of civilians will never come into contact with.
And whilst, yes, some criminals do just need some help and guidance in their lives, there are those criminals who decide that they want to walk the path of darkness. Plain and simple.
And we MUST do everything we can to ensure that our emergency services oppos, regardless of where in the world they serve, are afforded the best protection we can give to them. We OWE it to our emergency services to give them our 100% support.
