For law enforcement officers, assault goes with the job
It is unfortunate that defense attorney Joseph Terranova was assaulted while meeting with his client at the Erie County Holding Center attorney conference room.
Terranova said that the deputies responded in about one minute. I wonder how fast the police would have responded if the incident had happened in his office conference room.
Police officers, correction officers and security officers are subject to this type of assault every day. As it has been said in the past, “It goes with the job.”
Welcome to our world, Mr. Terranova.
Lt. Charles Krathaus Jr.
