Meeting with Obama-Appointed US Attorney in California: A Few Thoughts...


Hi, everyone! Last week I had a personal meeting with Obama appointed US Attorney in Eastern California - Benjamin Wagner. And after that meeting one thing in particular totally got me thinking. This isn't something that we discussed during our meeting, but for some reason that is what I want to bring up here on my blog...



And that is the fact that too often we forget how much effort is put into protecting our safety and well-being. It seems like we take what we have for granted and then get all negative about being pulled-over for speeding, about having to go thru extra security points at the airports, about police asking us questions when they see something suspicious and etc. It is all done for OUR safety and for the safety of our families. Police officers risk their lives every day when they come to work. They even risk lives when they simply pull people over for speeding, since no one knows who's sitting in the car. Yet they do that, because speeding KILLS! And I hope more of us were appreciative of everything that's done for us... 
Stay safe, guys!

  3. That must have been quite an experience! I agree that we take what we have for granted and also those who risk their lives for us for granted, and the sad thing is they don't get paid enough.

    1. That's true! I always think: what if my son/ husband/ father was a police officer?... it is such a scary thought and makes you appreciate their work so much more...

    У нас недавно произошла трагедия. К сожалению, для Америки она более типична, чем для нас. Молодой мужчина расстрелял в самом центре города 5 человек. И смог уйти не пойманным. Все службы встали на его поиск. А в ходе поиска при выезде из города проверяли машины. Даже мою, которая прозрачна (без тонировки) и видно, что я девушка, но! все равно осмотрели даже багажник. И никто не ворчал на них, все знали это надо делать, чтоб больше никто не пострадал.
    Хотя лучше бы таких трагедий вообще не было.

    1. Обалдеть, Маш! уже и до России этот психоз дошел! так поймали его все-таки?.... p.s. осторожнее там!!!

    2. Ну тут то и психоза не было. Мужик был судим за кражи, дважды сидел. А тут решил, что ему надо ограбить оружейный магазин. А магазин находится рядом со школой, и вообще центр города. Вот были убиты три продавца магазина ( они же по нашим законам не имеют права хранить заряженное оружие), две девочки 14 и 16 лет, которые шли из школы и случайный прохожий мужчина. Его поймали через сутки, при задержании он ранил сильно полицейского. Он не человек, конечно, но с точки зрения медицины отдавал отчет своим действиям.
      Цветы и игрушки, у нас до сих пор на том месте((( Уроды одним словом.

  23. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.
