Chabad Shows Appreciation for Local Law Enforcement

Despite the intense heat, citizens from across the Conejo Valley in California gathered outside the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station in Calabasas Tuesday afternoon to show their support for local law enforcement. The event was organized by Rabbi Moshe Bryski, executive director of the Chabad of the Conejo, who was touched by a Facebook post he read by one of the officers slain in the recent shooting incident in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Officer Montrell Jackson wrote just before his death: “I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me.”

“That was his final message,” said Bryski.” I felt a knot in my stomach that we needed to do something to say to our local law enforcement that we love and appreciate them and admire their courage and sacrifice for us.”

Billed as non denominational “celebration of honor, integrity, sacrifice and commitment,” the event was an opportunity for people of all races, colors and religions to express their common respect and solidarity for the vital role that the police play in maintaining the quality of life in the Conejo Valley, according to Bryski.

    Thanks.
    The police, whether they give us tickets, or don’t lock up every drug dealer or cell phone snatcher, still, every day, on or off duty, they put their lives in danger for everyone of us.
    Could they do a better job? Maybe, but couldn’t you also do a better job?
    The police deserve our respect and gratitude.

    Yes, it’s a Mishna, it’s a (sheva) Miztva, and it could be a lot worse.

    The anti-law and order movement is a war on G-d, a movement to reclaim the jungle from the domain of civilization.

    The very worst element of society, the trash, chayovei misa mamosh, are shaping the public attitude towards shoftim veshotrim.

    These black lives do not matter.
