Probably because they are pretty much a union/lobbying firm. I’m not going to argue with a socialist leaning person about the difference between 42 MOH recipients and 300k+ “police vets”. Last I checked the MOH is one of the highest honors given to the bravest of individuals, and the FOP membership only requires some dues. Clearly you are one of the many I spoke of, sorry that this gesture only brings about sarcasm and dismissal.
325 000 currently serving police officers in a group that has endorsed Republicans almost every time including Bush for both his elections is entirely more significant that 45 MOH recipients, both groups risk their lives for the good of everyone, and undoubtedly there are many many many medal recipients in the Fraternal Order of Police, by pure numerical basis the 42 pale in comparison.
