Congressman Pete King Attends Massapequa Kiwanis Bocce Tournament

The Italian-American community makes enormous contributions to Long Island life and culture. This past weekend I had the opportunity to again attend the annual Bocce Tournament at John J. Burns Park sponsored by the Massapequa Kiwanis. It was great to be able to share in the festive mood and friendly atmosphere and also watch the intense competition. Events like the Bocce Tournament remind us that so much of America's greatness comes from our many ethnic groups taking pride in their culture while coming together as Americans to form a huge mosaic and stained glass window.


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!
