LETTER: A blog for our officers

Dear Editor:
I feel that our Police Officers are at an all-time low as far as morale goes.  The general media, the City Council, the Mayor and their own Dept. has taken many opportunities to throw them under the proverbial bus.  Due to Dept. policy, the Officers have no voice.  They have been "directed" not to speak to the media and this puts them at a huge disadvantage when it comes to defending the attacks that the "opposition" piles onto them.
I do not know if I am wasting my time or not but I have been encouraged to create a Blog to express what I feel is how the Officers would respond - IF THEY COULD.  I know NOTHING about Blogs.  Even the language in the directions on "how to build one" is confusing and mind-boggling!  I feel like an idiot!
The obstacle I have run into, however, that I can't seem to find the answer to, is how to get it "out there" to the people that I wish could read it.  I "run in the circles" of those who support the police and my blog information would just be "preaching to the choir", so to speak, if I only focused on them. 

My blog is www.thethinblueblog.com
