Keith Mann knows that right now it is vital that we stick together and support cops. They are very underpaid and have a thankless job. At the moment, people are viewing them in a negative light and I can only imagine the toll it is taking on them. I know cops are mentally tough and they can handle it, but they are still human beings at the end of the day. Like Keith Mann, I believe in the cops. I feel better when they around and I feel safe. It is a great source of relief knowing they are only a phone call away if I should need them. Hopefully, no one is ever put in a situation where they need that kind of help and they can stay safe.
However, cops are quick to respond to any sign of distress and they take it very seriously. It is their job and it is what they were trained to do. It is truly a shame that people are letting a few bad cops ruin their whole view of cops and all of the good they have done. They are real-life American heroes and they deserve to be praised, honored, and treated with the utmost respect. Keith Mann knows this, which is why he donated lunch twice to the NYPD’s 54th Street precinct.
He said he doesn’t want to feed into the negativity. Keith Mann is not about that. His uncle is a detective in Long Island. He knows what he has to go through and the risks that are with the job. It is the gestures like this that really go far for the police. It is a reminder that people are out there that care about them, see the good they are doing, and they believe in them. They are not buying what the media is selling.
They know cops have been good for a long time and will be good for a long time in the future. It is how they are trained, how they operate, and how they live their lives by a strong code. They would not betray the public.
