Much respect to all law enforcement officers putting their lives on the line and upholding ethical behavior. Policing is one of the hardest jobs anywhere, and too many young people don’t give them the respect they deserve.
But not all young people – some are standing up for our police. Even some who most people would consider typical frat boys!
From America Now:
A police officer was out on patrol at a college campus when something interesting hanging by a student’s apartment caught his attention.
The cop pulled over to inspect it and saw that it was the grand old flag outside a student’s porch.
From a distance, it looked like an ordinary American flag, but close-up there was something unique about it. A blue line was where one of the white lines should be in honor and support of law enforcement, reports US Herald.
The officer immediately snapped a picture of the flag with three college boys from Ohio State University Wooster standing underneath it.
“I have not personally seen anything like this on a college campus before, so this is too awesome not to share,” read the Facebook post. “Loving the thin blue line flag AND the blue porch light!”
Facebook users went wild over the picture and even managed to identify the three college students as Noah Adams, Seth Curl and Massimo F. Asturi.
I don’t have a problem with this because I see it as a sign of respect for our military police but I also think some of you might not like it. After all, it’s not proper flag etiquette to alter the American flag.
Here’s how some people reacted to the gesture by the kids:
I wouldn’t do this or allow any of my family members to do it, but I wouldn’t stop these kids. They were showing respect for law enforcement. However, I would talk to them afterwards and let them know that the flag should be respected too, and let them know there could be another way to show respect so this action won’t cause problems in the future.
It didn’t seem like this police officer had any problems with what the kids did!
