Congressman King Attends Street Re-Naming in Lindenhurst

Lindenhurst, NY - Congressman Pete King (R-Seaford) recently had the privilege of participating in the street re-naming ceremony honoring NYPD Detective 1st Grade John F. Kristoffersen a long time Lindenhurst resident who died in August 2012 from 9-11 related illnesses resulting from his recovery work at Ground Zero. John Kristoffersen was a veteran NYPD Detective who labored courageously at the World Trade Center site in the weeks and months following the terrorist attack. He and thousands of other police officers, firefighters and construction workers who worked with him became ill and died from the conditions they worked during their recovery efforts. The Congressman noted "These heroes and their families deserve our fullest support and recognition."

In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
