As liberal activists and politicians push their “Defund the Police” movement, conservative commentator Mark Levin is promoting a two-minute video tribute to the trials, tribulations and challenges that police officers face by “the late, great Paul Harvey.”
Harvey, a soft-spoken, iconic, nationally-syndicated ABC News broadcaster who died in 2009, was known for weaving history and conservative commentary into his segments.
On Tuesday evening, as both figurative and literal attacks on officers plagued the nation, Levin posted to Twitter a video of Harvey’s commentary on what it takes to be “The Policeman.”
Paul Harvey’s father was a policeman who was killed in the line of duty when Paul was a young child.

In the video, Harvey explains how truly rare it is to encounter a policeman who dishonors his uniform - and why it takes "a genius" to enter the law enforcement profession.
