With all of the anti-cop sentiment, there’s no doubt in my mind police morale is at an all time low, which is what makes this new initiative launched by a Texas man last year so relevant.
From Opposing Views:
A Texas man has started a new initiative in his neighborhood to show support for police officers.
Anthony Welichko is calling it “The Safe Harbor Initiative.” As a sign of solidarity with police, Welichko spray painted a little blue strip on the curb in front of his San Antonio home, Mad World News reported.
The blue strip is meant to let officers know that the person occupying the home has their back and appreciates their service. Welichko took to Facebook to further explain the initiative.
“To all law enforcement who see this line, know that the residents of this home appreciate your service and dedication to keeping the peace. Know that when you enter the neighborhood and see these lines that you are not alone or without ‘back-up’. [sic] We do not need the media to make our voices of support for our police and emergency services heard (though it would be nice). Lastly, if you are in my neighborhood and mean to harm a member of law enforcement, know that decision may be hazardous you [sic] health as someone has that officers [sic] back!”
The post has been shared more than 61,000 times, with many people claiming they will join the initiative to show support for law enforcement.
With many police murders, this kind of support for the men and women who serve and protect our local communities is amazingly refreshing.
I truly hope this continues to take off not only in Texas, but across the entire country.
