Perhaps those officers were just following orders from the Sheriff. Anyone ask the officers themselves or is it not important what they have to say? Apparently not, but it’s OK for some snotty noes kid to accuse them of being cowards.
1. A man follows his conscience and does what he has to do. Even if he was “ordered to stay out” he had a duty to try to save those kids.
2. I’m not a “snot nosed kid”: I have faced fire - heavy fire - and done what I had to do and was severely wounded. Men do that, cowards don’t.
3. That man was a coward.
