Paul Harvey – “The Policeman”

This is a terrific tribute to the Thin Blue Line.

Paul Harvey (1918-2009) was a radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He gave the “Policeman” speech on talk radio nearly 40 years ago and it is known as one of his best speeches.

Mr. Harvey’s father inspired this speech. He was a police officer who was shot and killed while doing what police officers do every day. The text to the speech is included in the video.
