Officer Deon Joseph (2nd picture) works for the LAPD.

He was asked his opinion about the first picture that shows 8 black officers.

I really liked his answer.
Here's what he wrote:

“My opinion about this pic?
The bravest men and women in the country.
Not only do they face danger and catch hell doing it, they take heat from people who look like them as well for no logical reason.

Any African American willing to put on a badge and protect those who love and as well as those who hate them is a hero to me.

These men and woman in this photo have probably saved more lives than the thousands of people who criticize them from safe places combined.

I have nothing but respect for them.”

--Officer Deon Joseph

Just so you know Officer Joseph has spent 17 years working on Skid Row "trying to help the homeless and those trying to reclaim their lives from the grip of addiction.”

He says during that time he discovered, "That he could not simply make arrests with any hope of making lasting changes in Skid Row."

He sounds like a pretty remarkable man.
