A Very Moving Episode with an Officer Down
18 February 2011 | by (Arizona, United States) – See all my reviews

Congratulations to Kevin Wade, Writer; Jan Eliasberg, director; as well as the Cast of Blue Bloods for the very emotional episode - DEDICATION.

As a former member of law enforcement and a person who watch's practically every police / crime / drama - genre TV Show and movie I can over the past decades; I found this episode one of the top 20 that I recall seeing. The emotions, care, and concerns of all were quite real. There was one major error in that there would have been many more officers not just family at the hospital.

The ending at the actual Dedication with the two sons on the stairs watching and finding the assassin and taking him down so peacefully as their father the commissioner was speaking at the dedication for his Late Son, a fallen officer being honored by the University.

I found this very real and moving and in these very hard times where many an officer has fallen and many more have been fired due to cities not having funds; tonight left me with a feeling of thanks.
