It got started down in Texas. A man got tired of reading the media attacks on police officers doing their jobs.
He got tired of reading about the #BlackLivesMatter terrorists screaming about how cops are “murdering” young black men – especially when the young black men always seem to get shot committing a crime and very often, like Michael Brown, when they’re trying to kill a cop.
He decided to do a small thing .
The left is having a small fit. Snopes has gone so far as to note that while this is “well intentioned” it also could interfere with public utilities who use painted lines to mark power & gas lines. And of course they’ve completely – and intentionally – misread the Facebook posting that got this started.
“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! ”
Snopes rants on about how police agencies don’t want civilians interfering with officers in a shoot out.
At least they haven’t tried to paint the gentleman who started this as a racist. Yet.
