A Mayor who doesn't support Law Enforcement
As protests over policing continue to convulse cities throughout the U.S., one symbol keeps showing up: a black-and-white American flag with one blue stripe. Those who fly the flag have said it stands for solidarity and professional pride within a dangerous, difficult profession and a solemn tribute to fallen police officers. If you Google search the meaning of the "thin blue line" it is a symbol of police who keep society from descending into violent chaos.
Now, as police again become the focal point of a fight for racial equality in the U.S., the flag has again been brought into question. Mayor Regina Romero of Tucson Arizona, spoke out today (Tweeted like most politicians) after supportive community members were granted a permit to paint a blue line in front of the Police Headquarters building. See the tweet yourself here.
What we can do as a community is show this woman that we will back the blue in all conditions. Her is what you can do right now, 1.

We need more people to speak up and tell Regina Romero that her lack of support for the Law Enforcement here in Tucson does not go unnoticed. A mayor who does not support Law Enforcement does not belong in office.
