I received this message from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and I wanted to pass it on. Please sign the Tribute Card to show your support. A donation would also be appreciated!
No. I will not back down. Not as long as cops are being ambushed and executed. Not while all cops are being vilified with one big, broad brush. Not while the men and women who form the “thin blue line” are marked with targets on their backs.
Someone has to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with law enforcement. I am there. I believe you will be right beside me.
Officers are the most visible and vulnerable symbols of the freedoms we so dearly cherish. They lay down their lives for us. Shouldn’t we honor and remember their service and sacrifice, support the families left behind, and do our part to make it safer for those who continue to serve?
I’m writing to ask you to make a bold, brave, big statement on behalf of our heroes. Please sign this TRIBUTE CARD in support of this nation’s 900,000 federal, state, and local law enforcers. Will you please do that right now, Stephanie?
What has happened to America?
In Ferguson, MO, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” has become THE rallying cry, pronouncing police “guilty” from the erroneous recounting of the Michael Brown event. Never before has revisionist history been accepted as fact so quickly. Never mind that an investigation by the Department of Justice concluded that there was no police malfeasance and exonerated law enforcement’s action on that unfortunate day.
Several months later, two New York City police officers sitting in a marked patrol car were brutally assassinated. It was sickening to read the killer’s social media posting before the murders: “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today.”
I can’t even imagine what it must be like for our peace officers, or the families of officers killed in the line of duty, to hear a mob in New York City chant, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”
Will you prove to these cops and their families that you care? Will you show them that Americans like you respect their call of duty? Will you help me honor the fallen and their families, and make it safer for those who continue to serve?
Here’s what you can do:
Donate $25, $50, $100 or more. With every dollar you give, you offer a loving, lasting, and fitting tribute to our fallen heroes and their families. You help us remember that they lived an important life—walking the “thin blue line” between order and chaos. You ensure that those following in their footsteps will be safer, and that the important story of American law enforcement will finally be told.
