NRATV’s Grant Stinchfield invited Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine to share his thoughts on President Trump salute to law enforcement during the president's Tuesday night address to a joint session of Congress. “His words definitely resonate throughout the law enforcement community,” Sgt. Perrine said. “It’s great to have that support from Washington.” The Trooper continued: “I think that support will trickle down and most important to us is getting that support from the communities that we serve.”
Stinchfield noted Trump’s gratitude for not only the police force, but for their families as well: “I think so often people forget not just about you folks going out on the street but he talked about your family members,” he said.
“My wife has been with me through it all,” Perrine responded. “But now, even more recently, I’ve got two children. And every day when I leave for work I go in—even if they’re sleeping—and I kiss both my children and I kiss my wife. We try not to think about it, but that’s a ritual for me because in the back of my mind I know that could be the last time.”
