Blue Stripes On The Curb? They Mean A Whole Lot More Than You Think…
This is awesome. It is a classic case of less-is-more, and a subtle way to let our law enforcement know that we have their backs. This single blue stripe, at the curb of a residence is a statement. That statement is “The Safe Harbor Initiative” and it was recently launched in San Antonio, Texas by Anthony Welichko.
“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.’”
Welichko has begun a movement as he is of the thinking that our law enforcement needs to know they are supported and have the backing of the public, figuratively and literally.
As he says in his Facebook posting,
“…if you are in my neighborhood and mean to harm a member of law enforcement, know that decision may be hazardous to you (sic) health as someone has that officers (sic) back!”
The blue strip at your curb is a symbol of solidarity, but with far more gravity and meaning than most shows of unity, because it also implies action at the hands of the resident of the blue-striped location, as one who will not be trifled with when it comes to supporting law enforcement.
Everyone should consider putting on the blue and taking the Safe Harbor Initiative nationwide. A sea of blue striped curbs would be a welcome sight to citizen and cop alike.
Blue spray paint and tape are pretty easy to come by at your local hardware store.
