I don’t know about you, but not too many things in life make me as happy as a free lunch. It is a great feeling and a great thing to have on certain days. This is especially true right now with everything that the police are going through thanks to the mainstream media. Here is the thing, though: Keith Mann is smart enough to see right through it and he does not buy it. Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners has an uncle that is a detective and he knows all of the good that the police do in their day-to-day operations.
It can oftentimes be a thankless job and a job that is oftentimes severely underpaid considering what they go through. It is stressful as well. They have bullets flying at them and they are right in the heat of the battle. However, they love their job and they love protecting people. As is usually the case with the mainstream media, all it takes is one or two bad apples to create a story. With TV stations needing plenty of material to fill up many hours, they oftentimes take a small story and they run with it. Even if the story has no legs, they don’t care. They want to create ratings and they want to keep people tuning in, even if that is at the expense of the police.
That is why Keith Mann finally said that enough was enough and decided to do something about this unwanted negative press that the police have been receiving. He wanted to do a gesture and an act of kindness that would let them know he knows who they really are and he knows what they are really about and nothing is going to change his views on the police. He treated the NYPD 54th precinct to lunch on two separate occasions. When Keith Mann does something, he does not do it for the glory and he does not do it to get extra attention. That is not his game and that is not how he operates. He believes in doing the right thing.
