Blue lines are showing up on curbs across the country. And after you hear why, you may buy some paint and do it outside your home too.
With so much violence being waged against police officers who serve and protect us, one Texas man wanted to show his solidarity and support for the police.
Anthony Welchiko took to Facebook and in one post, he launched the Safe Harbor 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!
“I realize that law enforcement officers cannit [sic]/do not always make the best decisions (I am guilty of this as well) but when will the cop bashing stop?” wrote one user, who shared the post. “Thanks for your service. I do not want your job, but glad you are there!”
Welchiko’s post has been shared over 64,000 times. And blue stripes are appearing on curbs across the country. What a great way to show support for the police. It’s a visible thank you to them as they drive or walk around neighborhoods.
There have also been Sea of Blue rallies to support police. It’s important to tell them we have their back as protests against them still headline the news. Check out the video below of a HUGE Sea of Blue rally in Cleveland.
If you like this idea, please share this post to encourage others to paint blue lines on their curbs.
