Oldie but goodie. Mr. Harvey should know , his Dad was a cop.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

His Dad was also an LODD. From ODMP:"On 12-18-21,Officer Harry Aurandt died of wounds he sustained when he was shot while off duty as he was taking police action.
Officer Aurandt and a detective were rabbit hunting in a rural area of Tulsa on Federal Road. At about 9:00 pm the officers had returned to their car when they were approached by four armed men who exited a Buick touring car with the intent of robbing them. The detective attempted to fire his shotgun at them but it misfired. The four men started shooting at he officers while they were sitting in their car. Officer Aurandt, despite serious wounds in one lung, leg, and liver, drove one mile to a farmhouse where he collapsed.
Officer Aurandt died from his wounds two days later. The detective was paralyzed for life from leg wounds just above the knees.
The four suspects were later apprehended and sentenced to life in prison following a trial.
Officer Aurandt was survived by his wife, daughter and son. His son, Paul Harvey, later became a famous commentator, author, and columnist."For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
