Law enforcement has always been a target of criticism through the years. It's easy to point out faults or complain about inaction, but there's no denying that being a police officer isn't an easy job.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office took the opportunity to share an example of the challenges facing officers at any given time. The department posted a picture of an officer's vest following an arrest earlier this week to show the struggle that ensued. Check this photo out.


Thankfully the officer didn't sustain any significant injuries during the altercation despite the suspect's best attempt. It just goes to show how stressful a 'routine' night can be on duty. The photo has already been shard more than 1,000 times in less than a day which shows the power of one image.

It's easy to take our police officers for granted in our daily lives but we appreciate their service in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and around the country.
