‘Blue Lives f lag’ mat­ters to of­fi­cers and their fam­i­lies

In re­sponse to Rod Wat­son’s ar­gu­ment about the “Blue Lives flag” fly­ing over the South District Po­lice Sta­tion, I to­tally dis­agree. This flag hon­ors of­fi­cers who gave their lives for us. There is no one ex­cept the of­fi­cer who knows what hap­pened. He has to use split-sec­ond judg­ment.

It is sad for the fam­i­lies to have to live with this too. Much of these shoot­ings can be avoided if peo­ple just do what po­lice want.

Do they have a gun? I think the coun­try is too sen­si­tive lately. Will our red, white and blue of­fend some­one next? What about of­fi­cers who have been shot just at traf­fic stops when pulling a car over? We owe the flag to of­fi­cers like Craig Lehner.

I sug­gest if this flag of­fends these peo­ple maybe you should take an­other route to work.
