Regarding your editorial “The Heroes of Nashville” (March 30): As the former sheriff of Fort Bend County, Texas, I applaud the extraordinary response time of law-enforcement officers Rex Engelbert and Michael Collazo to the active shooter at the Covenant School in Nashville. Within 10 minutes of receiving the call, the officers entered the school and neutralized the threat. Their heroic actions prevented any further bloodshed, saving innocent students and teachers.
Every day, law-enforcement officers prepare for duty, not knowing if they will ever see their loved ones again. Their bravery often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. We should all take time to recognize, appreciate and commend the heroism of Nashville’s finest.
