      Lately in the news, an individual hears more about the wrongs cops are doing more than the rights. Detective Sgt. James Abbes and Detective Stephen Christinzio are two cops from New Jersey who broke the mold of what some Americans think cops are like today.

     According to foxnews.com Abbes and Christinzo deactivated explosive devices that were lying in a nearby trash can. The bombs were placed in the trash to go off before a local race. Abbes and Christinzo stopped the majority of the bombs, but unfortunately some went off.

     The New Jersey state police Superintendent Col. Patrick Callahan said, "Detective Sergeant Abbes and Detective Christinzio performed with calm and focus while under extreme stress, ensuring the safety of others first before risking their own lives to execute their mission, without the luxury of knowing if there were more components of the attack yet to be acted."

     According to foxnews.com the bombs were set pressure cooker devices that blasted shrapnel. The blast of the one bomb injured 30 people. Due to Abbes’ and Christinzio’s quick thinking and the will to protect U.S. citizens, the one blast could have turned into multiple.

     When a Pocomoke High School student was asked how they felt about Abbes’ and Christinzio’s actions, Samantha Dingus said, “I think they did the right thing, all the bombs could have gone off but they stopped that from happening.”

     The terrorist, Ahmad Rahimi who placed the bombs in the trash will be serving multiple terms in prison. Abbes’ and Christinzio’s actions saved many people and brought attention to the selfless actions that cops go through every day.
