Greitens to law enforcement: We have your backs and we will fight for you
Money line . . .
"Two police officers in our state were shot yesterday. In Gladstone and in St. Louis, two families, and two departments, spent the night in worry and fear. These officers left their homes and stepped into the dark to protect us.
"In the face of this violence, we must take action. We must stand up for those who stand guard for us. In the year ahead, my administration will push for the strictest possible punishments for anyone who assaults a police officer.
"My administration will also work with the legislature to establish a “Blue Alert” system, similar to Amber and Silver Alerts, that would send out emergency notices to speed up the capture of anyone who shoots a police officer. Twenty-seven other states have such a system in place, and it is time Missouri do the same . . . "
