TORONTO - When one cop is down, they all are.

Needless to say the entire policing community is reeling with the news that three RCMP officers have been slain, and two others injured.

“We in the policing community feel a grave loss and are deeply sadden by the events in Moncton,” Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Vince Hawkes said Thursday, just one day after a gunman went on a deadly rampage in Moncton, N.B.

Hawkes knows as much as anyone in the command of police that officers can face extreme risks. This is reality.
