Lou Ferrigno shared his opinions on some relevant topics
Lou explained, “Years ago, the cop would walk the beat and they would get to know the neighbors and the people. It’s changing, but going back to that fashion. That’s the safest and most effective way, because this way we know as officers how to respond to the situation depending on what the response is.”
He continued, “Every time you put a badge on and wear a uniform, you’re dealing with life and death, protecting life and property. I love all people, and all people need to unite and work together instead of having animosity when it comes to religion, politics or race. Let’s drop that. It’s all about keeping our country safe.”
