  1. Our prayers are with the officer and his family at this time. We hope he is going to be alright. And as committeman Meir Lichtenstein said recently to all the Lakewood police officers “come home safe, always safe”

  2. people shouldn’t speak if they can’t say it the right way. it’s safer to come up with their own phrase instead of messing up sombody elses quote that holds alot of meaning behind it.
