We have a Police PTSD Crisis: “Take care of our own” vs. “Throwaway Cops”

PTSD- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a new name for an old story and there are many complexities to its definition. The name, recognizing a medical condition, was coined several years after the onset of the Vietnam War. Similar symptoms demonstrated by soldiers following the Civil War were called nostalgia.

FRANK GALE SUPPORT FUND

In what has been an ongoing effort to seriously weaken or destroy the Denver Sheriffs Deputies FOP Lodge 27, the City of Denver manufactured an internal case and fired one the FOP’s top leaders and most outspoken advocates for union rights. Frank Gale is fighting this action and the FOP's attorneys are certain Frank will prevail.  It will be a long hard fight.  In response to requests from across the country a support fund has been established to accept donations to provide Frank financial aid through this difficult financial time.  Please give what you can.  Click on the “Donate” button below to link to our secure account. Thank you.
