A dangerous job?

How come we never see news photos of the brave officers who guard the Fort Worth mayor from imminent harm?

I never realized that being a mayor was so dangerous. We should recognize these brave men who put their lives on the line.

You have to admire not only these officers, but also the mayor herself for performing her duties in such dangerous situations.

I wonder if it is possible for the city to purchase a boom box and have Johnny Rivers’ Secret Agent Man played during her arrival for appearances?

After all, the expense would be minimal compared to the cost for her security detail, and would illustrate the need to a public that has no idea what danger she operates in.
